One asado (Spanish: “grilled”) too much?
According to Spanish media reports, Barça superstar Lionel Messi (33) and some of his teammates are threatened with trouble from the Spanish soccer league because they could have violated corona rules with a barbecue party.
The newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” writes that the professionals met on Monday after training at Messi’s house in Castelldefels near Barcelona.
This fact is not necessarily a violation of the Corona rules. According to these, more than six people may meet if they belong to a so-called “bubble” or community. The newspaper explains that the players also often meet for dinner otherwise.
What the problem is: This time wives are said to have been there too, which the league believes is not allowed. The regional government also launched an investigation.
It is still unclear whether there will be disciplinary proceedings by the league or fines.
In terms of sport, it remains exciting in Spain with four game days before the end: after Barcelona’s 3-2 draw at Valencia CF on Sunday evening, the top three in the table only separate two points (Atlético has 76, Real and Barça each have 74).
