All is fair in love and war, they say.
And although the days of Pepe’s reckless studs up challenges, Mourinho’s eye pokes on the touch line or the Barcelona school of performance arts seem to be a thing of the past – El Clasico matches are still hotly contested affairs.
This week’s edition was no different.
Despite ending with a 0-0 scoreline, the match did have its moments. Sergio Ramos’ and Gerard Pique’s respective last gasp clearances off the line. Fede Valverde’s rasping missiles from 25 yards out, the two potential penalties Raphael Varane was denied, Lionel Messi’s unbelievable miss and...Real Madrid’s Toni Kross grabbing on to a handful of shorts to prevent the diminutive magician from dribbling past him after getting dispossessed.
There’s something quite comical about seeing the German pass master – ever calm and assured with the ball, in control to the point of being almost metronomic – on his back, clutching at Messi’s shorts as he desperately tries to prevent him from progressing.
And by the looks of it, Twitter thought so too. Here are some of the funnier tweets reacting to Toni Kroos’ momentary brainfade.

Last season it was Modric trying to remove his shirt, this season it is Kroos trying to take off his shorts. It seems Messi needs to start playing without clothes, since Madrid players love his nude more. @FCBarcelona Take note pic.twitter.com/JaPlOtRp0H
