La Liga president Javier Tebas confirmed on Saturday that action will be taken against Real Valladolid for the state of their pitch.

Barcelona managed to escape with a 1-0 win at the Estadio José Zorrilla but found it tough going on an awful pitch.

Here’s what it looked like two days ago.

And here’s an example of how it cut up during the game.

As for Tebas - well here’s what he made of it all.

“The pitch at the Jose Zorrilla did not meet the minimum criteria demanded for a competition like La Liga,” he said.

Barcelona have also filed an official complaint about the pitch and quite right too.
