On Thursday evening, Leicester and Napoli locked horns in a tight match which resulted in a 2-2 draw in the Europa League. However, the game turned ugly after the final whistle as fans clashed in the stadium.

Police were required to intervene as the fans attacked each other.

Rival supporters spilled over segregation netting to confront one another before being pushed back by the police.

Missiles, including plastic bottles were thrown which resulted in fans clashing with the police.

It was reported fans were urged to stop by the King Power’s speaker system which asked supporters to “respect your club” by “moving away from the segregation line.”

The two clubs were joint favourites to lift the trophy in Seville in May.

It is still not clear what caused the violence as fans were mainly behaved throughout the 90 minutes before extra time was added.

The Foxes were previously leading the match by two goals before striker Victor Osimhen scored.

Napoli then came back from a 2-0 down to draw even with the Midlands team.

“The crime isn’t giving away the two goals, the crime is if you don’t learn from it – and I’m sure that is something this young team will do.”
