Valencia receives fine while Barcelona receives a reprimande
Valencia has received a fine for a bottle being thrown in the match against Barcelona, while Barcelona has received a reprimande for the players’ behaviour.
Saturday, Barcelona beat Valencia 3-2 in a La Liga match with plenty of drama. In the last minutes of the match, Barcelona received a penalty, which they scored on and thus won the match. Following the goal, the Barcelona players celebrated the goal, but was hit with a bottle of water.
The Spanish football federation has fined Valencia a little less than €2000 for the incident. The Barcelona players were, however, not without fault either. The federation states that the Barcelona players inappropriate provoked the Valencia supporters, but they also stipulates that in no way does that justify water bottle or other items being thrown at them.
