I lost my temper at the victory of my rival. Espanyol fans became hooligans and attacked Barcelona players.
Barcelona topped La Liga for the first time in four years. Barcelona won 4-2 against Espanyol in the 34th round of Spanish La Liga in the 2022-23 season held at the RCDE Stadium in Barcelona, Spain on the 15th at 4:00 am (hereinafter referred to as Korean time). Barcelona added 3 points and confirmed the championship regardless of the outcome of the remaining games.
It was a thrilling victory. Barcelona took the win early with Robert Lewandowski’s multi-goal and Alejandro Balde’s goal in the first half alone. Espanyol, who was in danger of relegation, fought hard, but it was not enough to catch up with Barcelona.
It was even more meaningful because it was the ‘Catalan Derby’. Barcelona continued their undefeated streak of 26 matches against Espanyol with a perfect victory over local rivals Espanyol.
Is that why? Barcelona expressed their joy of victory to the fullest. After the match, Barcelona players and coaching staff surrounded the center circle and held a ceremony. Even though it was not Camp Nou, the home stadium, it was a performance that a team that confirmed first place in the league could do well.
Espanyol fans were furious at this. They entered the pitch and tried to harm the Barcelona squad. Some fans even threw chairs into the stadium, unable to subdue their anger. Barcelona players and coaching staff immediately went into the locker room, and the intruding fans were arrested by the police.
This was not the end. An Espanyol fan followed the Barcelona team into the tunnel and attacked. Fortunately, his attempt was thwarted by the riot police escorting the Barcelona players, and the riot police immediately subdued the hooligans. 메이저사이트
It was something that should never have happened. Of course, it is true that Derby’s unique intense emotions cannot be easily controlled. However, as can be seen in the case of Naples, it is possible enough to confirm the championship on the road and perform a celebration. Except in extreme cases like digging up the field grass, you can’t blame them.
Espanyol also left an apology immediately after the match. Espanyol CEO Mao Ye said: “We want to apologize to the football world for this incident. It is not Espanyol. We will do our best to ensure that this does not happen again at our stadium.”
