CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | SEVILLA-MAN CITY
Fighting in Seville tonight, ahead of tomorrow's UCL game
Radical supporters linked with Sevilla FC and Manchester City were engaged in running battles in the El Arenal zone of the Andalusian city tonight.
With less than 24 hours to go before tomorrow's Champions League Group D tie between Sevilla and Manchester City, radical supporters linked with both clubs fought in the streets of the Andalusian capital this evening. Adriano street in the El Arenal district of the city was the location of the disturbance where the fighting broke out between rival supporters.
Just two weeks ago in Manchester, Sevilla fans were attacked by UK based radicals linked with former Europa League rivals of Sevilla in the past, Polish outfit, Slask Wroclaw. That particular incident which occurred near Manchester Cathedral appeared to be a revenge attack after a previous visit to Sevilla by the Polish supporters. No City fans were involved in the Mancheterr incident which saw four Polish individuals detained by local police.
