Sevilla fans injured as barrier collapses in Eibar stadium

Sevilla supporters were injured when a barrier in the supporters section at the Ipurua stadium in Eibar collapsed during a LaLiga match on Saturday.

The visitors took a 2-0 lead thanks to the Ever Banega penalty in the 59th minute, causing jubilant scenes among the traveling fan band.

But during the celebrations, many spectators scattered on the playing field while a handrail that kept them in the stands gave way under pressure.

Two Sevilla fans allowed themselves to be carried on stretchers and the game stopped for eight minutes to allow the area to clear.

Sevilla went on to win the match 3-1.
