Spain’s Anti-violence Commission has demanded Atletico receive a stiffer punishment following the crowd trouble during their recent league match against Sevilla.
Atletico were fined just €3,000 euros by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) after the incidents that caused the match to be delayed for 40 minutes.
Sevilla goalkeeper Andres Palop was hit by a missile shortly after the visitors took the lead at the Calderon and the bombardment forced the referee to take both teams off the pitch.
The Anti-violence Commission said on Thursday that they would appeal against the RFEF’s punishment.
The Commission itself fined Atletico €5,000 euros for failing to prevent fans entering the stadium with beer cans and whisky bottles.
