What is the longest injury time ever added in Europe's top 5 leagues? Please mention the details of the match.

    This is probably too broad as this question would include non-professional leagues, which hardly have historical or official records. I suggest to narrow down the question to include only professional or top level competitions. I remember a match where I was on the pitch, which had more than 30 minutes added to it due to a serious injury. Also does it count when the game is interrupted and later resumed because of hooligans or too many pyrotechnics or even severe weather? There would be a lot of incidents of that kind. – dly Apr 4 '18 at 14:17
  • @adithskv I removed some part of question, as this question is gathering close vote for being too broad. If you don't like this edit you can revert to the previous one. – Ram Chandra Giri Apr 5 '18 at 16:25
  • @RamChandraGiri Its fine. I'm a newbie and I didn't no anything much about responses here. – adithskv Apr 5 '18 at 16:47

  1. English Premier League

As already stated in this answer for the question EPL match with the longest injury time is Arsenal v. West Ham United, 23 January 2013 (12 minutes 58 seconds).

Due to the earlier injury to Potts, 12 minutes of injury time were needed after the 90 minutes were up and unsurprisingly Arsenal dominated with the man advantage.

. . . plus 12 minutes of injury time with 10 men

  1. La Liga

Barcelona vs Espanyol 2008 match got extended for 13 minutes.

While not technically "injury time," the fireworks of the Catalan derby between Espanyol and Barcelona were extended for 13 minutes in 2008 after fans continued to disrupt play.

  1. Ligue 1 (not sure whether this is longest or not)

Strasbourg vs PSG 02 Dec 2017 had nine minutes of stoppage time.

Pressure was intensely applied to the Strasbourg goal, with nine minutes of stoppage time giving them even greater hope of a leveller.

  1. Bundesliga (not sure whether this is longest or not)

Cologne vs Hamburg 2017 had 13 minutes of added time. In this game Lewis Hotlby made history by scoring a Bundesliga goal in the 100th minute.

The extremely late action came because of an injury to referee Felix Brych early in the second half, with the final whistle ultimately blown in the 114th minute.

Other notable matches:

...there were about 23 minutes of stoppage time in the first-half alone after a broken leg, a dislocated shoulder (Bees striker Lloyd Owusu passed out from the pain and an ambulance had to be driven up to the pitch), and serious concussion caused the delay...

Seventeen minutes did the board read, the longest added time in the Asian Champions league, the A-League and all recorded Asian premier leagues.

Geiger then awarded an 89th-minute penalty when Torres fell on the ball after an attempted clearance to plunge the game into extra time and spark a 10-minute stoppage marred by flying beverages and scuffles on the field.

The match was delayed for more than 10 minutes before order was restored.

Note: Haven't found any resources for Serie A, not sure the one I mentioned for Ligue 1, Bundesliga is the longest or not. Question mentions injury/stoppage time. Thanks to dly for information on Bundesliga.

    It's not worth an answer of its own, but in the Bundesliga it was (probably) HSV - Cologne with 14 minutes when the ref got injured and had to be replaced. – dly Apr 5 '18 at 6:10
