This is bad. Pitch invasions usually turn out to be harmless but there is a reason they are illegal because they can cause potential injury to the players on the field and interrupt the game at crucial times. There has been an ongoing debate about whether these pitch invaders are “harmless” and whether players like Cristiano Ronaldo should not reward them for their behavior because it encourages them. As we can see from this video, this problem can escalate quickly and if it is not harshly punished then there could be more pitch invasions in the future. The higher the number of pitch invaders, the higher the risk of potential problems.
