Atlético de Madrid have traveled to Lyon to defend today their appeal against the UEFA’s ground ban following incidents at a Champions League game. UEFA ordered Atletico to play their next two European games at a stadium at least 300 kilometres (200 miles) from Madrid as punishment for allegued crowd disturbances and racist insults against Marseille players during the October 1 match.
Atletico are showing videos taken by the Spanish police showing that the Marseille fans started the disturbances by ripping off seats and throwing them to the police. They’re also showing the referee act where they don’t reflect any racist insult.
From Atletico de Madrid Fans we firmly believe that is nothing but a personal vendetta from Platini after their countrymen are being the embarrassment of the Champions League, last in the group with zero points.
