At least two fans have been arrested, according to local media.

Local police, the Guardia Civil, helped contain the fights.

The unrest comes one day after a similar situation in Naples, where Napolo took on Eintracht Frankfurt.

Italian media has said German ultras have damaged a number of police vehicles before the game kicked off.

Some have been set alight, according to pictures taken at the scene.

Videos shared on social media show people wearing dark jackets, some of whom have motorcycle helmets and balaclavas on, charging towards officers as they hold up riot shields.
