The league and Espanyol were analyzing television images to try to identify the fans and report them to authorities.

Riot police had to stand in front of the player tunnel entrance with shields to prevent the hundreds of fans from going in. Some Barcelona players exchanged words with the fans from inside the tunnel.

The Espanyol supporters threw chairs and other objects before dispersing without any other incidents.

The club apologized but will likely face sanctions after the investigation. Espanyol is in danger of relegation, sitting second to last with four games remaining.
