PSG fans stabbed in Barcelona still alive

Fans were attacked by group hiding their faces in hoods around the Camp Nou after Barcelona had won

Spanish Police reports that two fans were stabbed on Wednesday night as Barcelona defeated PSG 3-1 at the Nou Camp; just over a week after a Deportivo La Coruna fan was killed following violent clashes between rival groups.

One of the fans has reportedly been discharged while the other is still in a very serious but not life threatening condition.

Police statement read: ''The first incident occurred around 11 at night in the vicinity of Camp Nou. A French citizen who left the game was approached on Felipe de Paz street by two individuals, in dark clothes and balaclavas, and was stabbed.

‘’The victim, who was accompanied by other PSG supporters, had to be transferred to a hospital, where he remains.

‘’A little later on and near to the site of the first (incident), there was another similar incident on L'Avinguda Madrid de Barcelona. Three young people who had also come to watch the game were assaulted by several individuals.

‘’One victim suffered a stab wound and had to be transferred to hospital, from where he has already been discharged.

‘’The police are working to determine the exact circumstances of the facts and to detain those responsible.’’
