LA LIGA TO FILE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST PITCH INVADER

LaLiga to file criminal case against pitch invader

La Liga have said they will file criminal actions against the pitch invader who ran on during Barcelona’s match against Real Mallorca on Saturday, which was supposed to be behind closed doors.

In the 52nd minute of Barca’s 4-0 win at Son Moix, a man wearing an Argentina shirt with Lionel Messi’s name on the back entered the pitch and posed for a picture on his phone near Jordi Alba.

He did not wear either a mask or gloves and was chased before being caught and escorted away by security.

A statement from the league said his actions constitute a crime.

La Liga has imposed strict a medical protocol for matches, which resumed in the top flight on Thursday with Sevilla’s victory over Real Betis.

Fewer than 300 people are allowed into stadiums and games are closed to the public.
