Ajax fans were left injured in Athens after home fans allegedly threw flares and a missile or petrol bomb that exploded close to the fans.
Shocking images from within AEK Athens’ stadium show the terrifying scene as football fans clash ahead of the club’s Champions League match against Ajax.
According to reports, AEK fans were spotted launching what’s thought to be a ‘Molotov cocktail’ towards the away fans, which then exploded nearby.
Wire fences have been erected to keep the fanIs away from the pitch — there are also glass barriers set up, which kept fans trapped in while the explosion, believed to have been due to petrol, went off.
Police then intervened, facing the visiting fans in further violent scenes. No arrests or injuries were immediately reported, although photos showed several fans with blood on their face after the clashes.
