Ansu Fati’s house was reportedly broken into and robbed during Barcelona’s match against Espanyol on Saturday, November 20.
Fati was a spectator at Camp Nou for the debut of new Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez. In front of over 70,000 fans, the Catalans defeated their cross-city rivals 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Memphis Depay.
During the match, a group of thieves broke into Ansu Fati’s house in Sant Cugat, a town near Barcelona, according to La Vanguardia (via Mirror). They allegedly broke in while some members of Fati’s family were downstairs. Police were called for assistance, but the officers who arrived did not find anyone.
Barcelona’s 1-0 victory over Espanyol provided both excitement and relief for the club and its fans. However, there were several concerns for Xavi’s team, the most notable of which was their inability to end the game earlier. Fati is said to have been robbed of money, watches, and jewelry, but no one in his family was injured.
