TWO Paris Saint-Germain supporters were stabbed near Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium following last night’s Champions League tie.
The victims – injured in separate incidents – were taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, after Barcelona’s 3-1 victory.
In the first attack a French football fan was attacked by two men wearing ski-masks. Shortly afterwards three French youths were assaulted by several people as they left the stadium.
Police said they did not know the identity of the attackers and the motive for the attacks.
This is the second time football violence has reared its ugly head in Spain in the past few weeks.
On November 30 a man was killed after Atletico Madrid fans clashed with supporters from Deportivo La Coruna.
