The crowd trouble which disrupted the Copa del Rey semi final was not started by Los Blancos supporters, according to Blaugrana officials
Madrid inflicted a 3-1 defeat over Barca but the game was also blighted by off-the-field trouble.It was believed that Los Blancosfans had lit a flare in the upper-tier of the ground and thrown it into the Barca section.
However, according to a Barcelona official, an investigation has suggested that home fans were at fault.
“It was not a group of Real Madrid fans that threw the flare," vice-president of social affairs at the club, Jordi Cardoner, told Catalunya Radio.
"We have verified where this flare came from and it was not there.”
