New reason for anger for the Espanyol fans. Barcelona informed the parakeet team that fans who, individually, have purchased tickets and wear identifying clothing from their club will not be able to enter the Spotify Camp Nou.
A measure with few precedents that will tarnish the derby, since it will only have the Barça colors of the local team. As a consequence, Espanyol has assured that they will act "reciprocally in the second leg".
The most surprising thing about what happened is that this announcement came from Espanyol through a statement and hours after the court allowed Lewandoski to play in the match, which caused enormous anger on the part of the blue and white entity.
Since 2008, Espanyol has not sold tickets for groups of Barça fans due to the serious incidents that occurred this season at the Montjuïc stadium. Several Boixos Nois threw flares at blue and white fans, which led to a police investigation.
This new element, the ban on wearing the rival team's clothing, is something new in derbies, but judging by Espanyol's reaction, it seems to be here to stay.
