It was lit at Camp Nou, literally — before, during and after Wednesday’s El Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
A large separatist protest erupted outside the stadium, starting hours before the match even began, and it grew violent quickly. Both trash cans and even a police car were set on fire, which prompted the riot squad to be summoned there. Protesters clashed with them at one point, which resulted in smoke from the fires even reaching the stands inside the stadium, which probably wasn’t good for players, coaches, fans or officials.
The videos really tale the tale of how crazy it was.
They even threw inflatable balls onto the pitch at one point, which was a bit unorthodox.
Civil unrest continues, not only in the United States, but around the world, unfortunately.
