Violent Eintracht fans create disorder at Lazio match  1 Month ago

Source:   USA Today  

ROME (AP) — Italian authorities are assessing damage caused by visiting Eintracht Frankfurt fans before, during, and after a Europa League match against Lazio.

UEFA opened its own disciplinary case on Friday which is likely to force Eintracht to pay compensation for damage to the Stadio Olimpico.

Fans heading to the stadium on Thursday launched fireworks in downtown Rome and damaged a supermarket.

"Hooligans from Germany have wrecked parts of our city, a supermarket in the Flaminio area and Piazza del Popolo," Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi said. "We welcome visiting fans with open arms to Rome but we don't want hooligans anymore."

There was more disorder and clashes with police outside the Stadio Olimpico before the match, which Eintracht won 2-1.

During and after the game, fans attempted to scale barriers and run onto the grass, prompting authorities to intervene on the running track surrounding the field.

UEFA's disciplinary panel will judge a range of charges including "acts of damages" and "field invasions by supporters" at a Jan. 10 hearing.

Police also said two German fans were attacked downtown overnight with clubs and bottles, presumably by Lazio supporters.

Both Eintracht and Lazio had already advanced to the knockout round.

There have been numerous incidents of violence in Rome featuring foreign fans, such as when Feyenoord supporters damaged a fountain in front of the Spanish Steps three years ago.
