Osasuna fans were celebrating a goal against Real Betis when the barricade collapsed in the packed Sadar stadium.

Osasuna’s Oriol Riera scored in the 12th minute of the match, sending the crowd wild.

Fans in a celebratory mood were leaning and sitting on the metal barrier when it gave way, causing dozens to fall.  

Medics attended the injured fans on the field, with 10 people requiring further treatment at hospital.  

The game was delayed for 35 minutes before it was resumed.

Osasuna beat Real Betis 2-1 but were relegated to the second division.

Atletico Madrid won their first La Liga title in 18 years on Saturday night. They drew 1-1 to second-placed Barcelona.
