'They bought tickets illegally': Barca president reacts as Eintracht fans outvoice home crowd at Camp Nou

"I am worried because what happened was embarrassing and it cannot happen again," Barcelona president Joan Laporta said after the Europa League game against Eintracht Frankfurt when up to 30,000 German fans upstaged the home crowd.

"We have information about what happened, but we need time to process it.

"We are going to take action because it is outrageous and shameful."

Later, Laporta named two reasons why so many Eintracht fans got the tickets.

"There are two irregular things that happened here, both in the tickets sold in the third tier of the stadium, which went to the Germans, and part of the season ticket holders' tickets which also went to the rival fans," Joan Laporta has told TV3.

"We put the 34,440 tickets on sale for public with several restrictions like they could not be bought with German credit cards. We put all the restrictions we could. These tickets were located in the third tier of the stadium, which was all white.

"The Germans bought the tickets illegally. Also, of the 37,746 season ticket holders tickets' registered at the stadium, many also ended up in the hands of German fans."

The humiliation added to the fact that Barcelona were knocked out of the Europa League, losing to Eintracht 3-2.

It means that barring a miracle in La Liga, the Catalans lost their last chance to win a trophy this season.
