Video: Manchester City Fans ‘Attacked’ By Sevilla Ultras Ahead of Champions League Tie

Manchester City fans have been involved in violent skirmishes with Sevilla ultras ahead of tomorrow night’s Champions League tie in Spain.

Spanish newspaper AS claim that City supporters and ‘radicals’ and ‘hooligans’ from Seville clashed in the city centre, with the first notable incidents taking place inside Irish bar O’Neill’s, before running battles began in small groups in an area of El Arenal, Calle Adriano.

Two City fans are thought to have sought medical attention after suffering minor injuries, although there have been no arrests as yet.

An eyewitness told the Manchester Evening News:

It was horrible. Some people came into the bar and they were wearing masks.

They began shouting ‘hooligans, hooligans’.

They were fighting and throwing chairs everywhere. It all happened so quickly. It was over in 10 minutes.

The fighting was really scary. Some people ran out of the bar which was packed as they wanted to get away.

I think someone was injured.

There was somebody with blood on their head.

The police came and ambulances came too.

The violent clashes have occurred just two weeks after three people were arrested last month after ugly scenes erupted in Manchester city centre before and after the reverse tie.

On the pitch, City beat Tuesday’s opponents in Manchester 2-1, and currently find themselves second in Group D on six points.
