The Spanish League has opened an investigation in the presence of Barcelona players at a barbecue hosted by Lionel Messi yesterday at his home, with the aim of ensuring that they follow the health measures taken to prevent Corona virus (Covid 19).
Messi invited all Barca players to his home after yesterday’s training and held a barbecue to celebrate the precious victory over Valencia on Sunday, asking them to focus and do their best to ensure victory in the upcoming matches and the La Liga title.

La Liga decided to investigate the possibility of Barca players violating the measures to prevent the Corona virus used in Catalonia, which stipulates that more than 6 people must not meet together at the same time, whether in an internal or external place.
It is expected that the players will be exposed to penalties if it is proven that they violated these procedures, and no one can expect these penalties, especially since it is the first time that such happens.
Some Seville players were present at a barbecue last May before the resumption of the Spanish League for the 2019-2020 season, and the head of La Liga at the time, Javier Tebas, threatened to take a tough stand with them, but the matter was resolved after the players publicly apologized for what they had done.
This may be repeated with Barca players, but Messi and his companions may be subject to sanctions from the Catalan authorities if it is proven that they did not follow the approved preventive measures to combat the Corona virus.
It is reported that Barcelona is currently third in the Spanish League table with 74 points, a difference between the second Real Madrid and two points from leaders Atletico Madrid.
