Camp Nou on Thursday night was full of Eintracht Frankfurt fans.
According to club president, only 5000 tickets were allotted for the away fans on that night.
Nearly 50% of the stadium was filled with Frankfurt fans with Joan Laporta claiming that the Barcelona fans themselves sold their tickets to the German fans.
“We put 34,440 tickets on sale. Barcelona fans should know that these tickets were available because season-ticket holders gave them up,” Laporta began.
“We put these tickets on sale with restrictions: they could not be bought with German credit cards or from any IP address in that country. We did all the restrictions we could, as we have done for the last six seasons.
“These tickets were located in the third tier, which ended up being all white in the hands of the Germans. Of the 37,746 season tickets registered at the stadium, many also ended up in the hands of German fans.
“There are two issues here: the tickets sold in the third tier and the season tickets which went to the rival fans. The club is not to blame for what happened. We are responsible for organising the match, and those who know me know that I am taking responsibility and taking action, and we will take action.”
