Crowds, invasion of the field: the match between Morocco and Chile theater of incidents in Barcelona

The video is chilling. And remember the sad and painful memory incidents at the Stade de France in May, in the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool (1-0). The friendly match between Morocco and Chile, played on Friday night at the RCDE Stadium on the outskirts of Barcelona and won by the Lions of the Atlas 2-0, was the scene of numerous lack of civility.

In videos posted on social networks, we see many supporters of the Moroccan team – probably without tickets – jumping the entrance gates to the stadium. Overwhelmed, the security guards helplessly watch these scenes. They even prefer not to intervene to avoid seeing the situation degenerate.

At the end of the meeting, the lawn was invaded by hundreds of people who wanted to show their joy with Walid Regragui’s players, the new coach of the Atlas Lions. The authorities could launch an investigation after these incidents. Penalties are to be expected.

On social media, many Atlas Lions fans have shown their sadness and anger.

Incidents that tarnished a sportingly perfect evening for Morocco. For his debut at the head of the national team, Walid Regragui – who succeeded Vahid Halilhodzic a few weeks ago – offered an attractive game. Interesting performance two months before the World Cup in Qatar.

PSG defender Achraf Hakimi even received a tribute from Arturo Vidal, his former teammate at Inter Milan in 2021 where they were crowned Italian champions. “Very good game my brother Achraf Hakimi. Good luck for the World Cup. Blessings, I love you…” A little softness in this brutal world.
