Football fans gathered at Barcelona's Camp Nou for the Champions League Wednesday night, but after the game, Chelsea fans say they were "attacked by police".

With the quarterfinals fast approaching, only two Premier League teams will advance and fans of all clubs were attending the games. Fan favorite Leo Messi scored twice in a 3-0 win at the Camp Nou games with Ousmane Dembele taking the other.

It was these Chelsea fans who say they were brutally assaulted by police wielding clubs after the game ended. Eye-witnesses used their phones to capture the scene on video. Even Chelsea FC called attention to the treatment of fans after a number were hurt in the incident.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">[2/2] &#39;We ask that our supporters contact us with accounts of their experiences of this evening’s arrival at the stadium so that we can take this up properly with the authorities.’</p>&mdash; Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) <a href="https://twitter.com/ChelseaFC/status/974054008414507008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 14, 2018</a></blockquote>

A spokesman for Chelsea club said, "We are aware of reports of incidents outside the ground before the game where a number of Chelsea fans were hurt… We ask that our supporters contact us with accounts of their experiences of this evening’s arrival at the stadium so that we can take this up properly with the authorities."

Others like Ovilia Buzaglo and Johhny Apples called attention to the treatment experienced by Chelsea fans at the hands of Spanish police.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Chelsea fans have been treated like animals getting into the Camp Nou tonight. Delayed so we missed kick off and hit with batons when we did. Crazy/scary scenes. This has to be sorted out. Away fans don’t have one problem when they come to England. Not one.</p>&mdash; Olivia Buzaglo (@OliviaBuzaglo) <a href="https://twitter.com/OliviaBuzaglo/status/974015622991548421?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 14, 2018</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Coming out of the ground before the bridge there was a sudden surge. People pushed to the floor and as I turned around all I saw was Spanish police randomly pushing and hitting people. Carnage afterwards. Happy to give more info.</p>&mdash; Johnny Apples (@johnnyapples1) <a href="https://twitter.com/johnnyapples1/status/974058827443261440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">March 14, 2018</a></blockquote>
