Atletico Madrid succumbed to a 0-1 loss at the hands of LaLiga rivals Barcelona on Sunday. Lionel Messi, who won the Ballon d'Or trophy for the sixth time, scored the winner on the weekend as Barcelona secured their spot at the top of the LaLiga table. However, there were some nasty incidents that occurred during the match at the Wanda Metropolitano involving former Atletico Madrid player - Antoine Griezmann.
LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid are reportedly facing a lengthy stadium ban after chants of 'Antoine Griezmann die' boomed in the entire Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Sunday. Griezmann, who joined Barcelona for €110 million in the summer transfer window, played the entire 90 minutes against Atletico Madrid. He faced a lot of insulting remarks from Los Rojiblancos' fans present in the stadium. As per reports in Spanish media, Atletico could be fined €90,000 for the chants along with a partial stadium ban for the upcoming LaLiga matches. Prior to kick-off, French World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann's plaque outside the Wanda Metropolitano was defaced with graffiti and toy rats. It's important that fans learn to respect the opposition team and such incidents are not repeated in the future.
