The video is chilling.
And recalls the sad and painful memory of the incidents at the Stade de France, in May, during the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool (1-0).
The friendly match between Morocco and Chile, played on Friday evening at RCDE Stadium in the suburbs of Barcelona and won by the Atlas Lions 2-0, was the scene of numerous acts of incivility.

Like a copy paste of images of the Stade de France.

In videos posted on social networks, we see many supporters of the Moroccan team - probably without tickets - jumping over the gates at the entrance to the stadium.
Overwhelmed, the security guards helplessly watch these scenes.
They even prefer not to intervene to avoid seeing the situation degenerate.
At the end of the meeting, the lawn was invaded by hundreds of people who wanted to show their happiness with the players of Walid Regragui, the new coach of the Atlas Lions.
An investigation could be launched by the authorities after these incidents.
Sanctions are to be expected.
On social networks, many Atlas Lions supporters have shown their sadness and anger.

Followed by “Shame, shame, shame!
from the stands.

Incidents that tarnished a sportingly perfect evening for Morocco.
For his first at the head of the selection, Walid Regragui - who succeeded Vahid Halilhodzic a few weeks ago - offered an attractive game.
An interesting performance two months before the World Cup in Qatar.
PSG defender Achraf Hakimi even received a tribute from Arturo Vidal, his former partner at Inter Milan in 2021 where they were crowned Italian champions.
“Very good game my brother Achraf Hakimi.
Good luck for the World Cup.
Blessings, I love you…”.
A bit of softness in this brutal world.
