Multiple fans were injured on Saturday when part of the stands collapsed at Ipurua Municipal Stadium during Eibar’s La Liga match against Sevilla, according to the BBC.

A section of the bleachers gave way when Sevilla supporters stormed to the front while celebrating Ever Banega’s penalty goal that put them up 2-0. Two fans were carried away on stretchers, and two others suffered minor injuries, per the report.

The Sevilla players who were nearby were uninjured during the celebration, and even briefly jumped in to help fans back to their feet.

The match was only delayed for about six minutes.

Sevilla beat Eibar on Saturday 3-1 behind a pair of goals from Banega and an Andre Silva goal in the 47th minute.
