Atletico Madrid could face punishment after their fans aimed threatening chants towards former star Antoine Griezmann on Sunday.
- Messi sinks Atletico on Griezmann's return
- Griezmann Barcelona deal 'would have consequences'
- Messi crowned 2019 Ballon d'Or winner
The league said about 2,000 fans from Atletico's ultras section made the chants for about 20 seconds in the seventh minute of the match. The chants were repeated in the second half.
The Spanish football federation's anti-violence committee will analyse the case and should they find Atletico guilty, they can issue a fine or even a partial stadium closure.
Barcelona went on to win the game 1-0 thanks to a late Lionel Messi strike, taking them back above Real Madrid to the top of La Liga on goal difference.
