Tottenham fans will have fond memories of the side’s Champions League group stage game against Barcelona at the Camp Nou earlier in the season. After faltering in the first few games of the group stage, Spurs needed to win or at least match Inter Milan’s result against PSV to get into the knockout stage of the competition.

Tottenham dominated the game and came back from a goal down to secure a point which was enough to see Tottenham progress as PSV held Inter Milan to a 1-1 draw.

However, the game will not bring back pleasant memories for the Tottenham fans who were actually in attendance at the Camp Nou. The traveling fans were reportedly checked multiple times on their way to the stands and kept in the stadium for more than an hour after the final whistle.

Some fans even reported that they were attacked by the police and the stewards in the stadium. The club thus publicly backed the fans and lobbied on behalf of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust, who compiled a list of the problems the traveling Spurs fans faced at Barcelona’s stadium.

According to a report in the Sun, after an investigation, UEFA have now charged Barcelona with ‘insufficient organisation’ at the match.

Some Spurs fans who traveled to the Camp Nou on that day were pleased with the news and hoped that the Catalan club incur some tough punishment.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the news:
