LaLiga has denounced in the courts of Cornellà de Llobregat (Barcelona) the invasion of the field that occurred at the end of the League match between Espanyol and Barcelona, on matchday 34, when the blaugranas were celebrating the achievement of the title over the RCDE Stadium lawn. The institution directed by Javier Tebas adds this route to the complaints presented before the Competition Committee of the RFEF and before the State Anti-Violence Commission.
The complaint is addressed to those people already identified by LaLiga, in collaboration with Espanyol, as well as to all those who have participated in the incidents and are identified by the police authorities.
“In the complaint filed, the court is requested to issue a warrant to the Sports Office of the Mossos d’Esquadra to analyze the images and proceed to their identification,” LaLiga argues in its statement.
The events occurred when, after the game (2-4) and in full celebration of the Barça players and coaching staff for mathematically winning the title, a significant number of Espanyol fans invaded the field and prevented the Catalans from continuing with their traditional circle of celebration. Many of them challenged safety, throwing objects and there were moments of tension.
The invasion of the field forced the players and the coaching staff to run to the changing room tunnel. No member of Barça came into contact with the fans who jumped violently in their direction, cut off in their path by private security forces and Mossos d’Esquadra at the mouth of the tunnel. The hundred followers spent about 20 minutes stalking that door into the stadium.
