FC Barcelona have been granted a stay of execution as they bid to have a two-match stadium ban overturned.
The Catalan club appealed successfully to a Madrid court to have the sanction suspended. The ruling allows Barcelona to play their next home game, against RC Deportivo La Coruña on Sunday, at the Camp Nou.
The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) had wanted the ban, which had been upheld by an independent sporting arbiter, the Sporting Disciplinary Committee (CEDD), to take effect as of this weekend.
The punishment was handed to Barcelona by the RFEF's disciplinary body, the Comité de Competición, and subsequently ratified by its appeals committee. However, Barcelona announced last week that they would take their case to an administrative hearing and would respect the decision of a civil court.
The RFEF took action against Barcelona after plastic bottles and other objects - including a stuffed pig's head - were thrown on to the pitch during a league game against Real Madrid CF on 23 November.
