A barrier at Eibar's Ipurua collapsed under pressure on Saturday, injuring some Sevilla fans

Eight Sevilla fans have been injured after a barrier collapsed during the La Liga game at Eibar on Saturday.

Railings in the away section of the ground gave way as supporters celebrated the second goal of the visitors 3-1 win.

Ever Banega's penalty which put Sevilla into a 2-0 lead sparked wild celebrations among the travelling support, some of whom spilled onto the pitch.

Play was stopped for six minutes to allow for those fans affected to be treated, with eight individuals eventually taken to hospital.

Two fans were carried away on stretchers but Eibar have confirmed that no-one suffered serious injury.

The club later announced that all those caught up in the incident had been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment.

Sevilla boss Pablo Machin said: "It seems that there is not going to be any disgrace of consideration. 

"May this victory make them recover as soon as possible. That it does not happen again, surely it is bad luck."
