In the 34th week of La Liga, Barcelona defeated their arch-rival Espanyol 4-2 in an away derby to end their 3-year championship drought.
Coach Xavi Hernandez, in his second season at Barcelona, and Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who joined the Catalans in July 2022, won their first title.
After the final whistle, the Barça players held hands in the middle of the pitch, formed a circle and started celebrating the 27th championship won by the club.
The championship celebrations sent Espanyol fans, struggling to stay in the relegation zone, into a frenzy.
After overcoming the security guards, the angry fans targeted the players of the Catalan team. Seeing this situation, the Barcelona players immediately fled towards the locker room.
Some fanatical fans managed to reach the tunnels leading to the dressing room and confronted the Barca players. The fans clashed with the players, including Sergio Busquets and Marcos Alonso, and the police were able to calm the situation.
While no player from the Catalan team was injured in the incidents, the management of the relegation-threatened Espanyol were also affected by the reactions. The blue-and-white supporters threw chairs and other objects around and reacted strongly against the management.
