PARIS (AP) – Twenty-eight people have been arrested after a brawl in central Paris between fans of Paris Saint-Germain and Dinamo Zagreb before their Champions League match.
At least two people were injured in the Monday night fight near the Bastille, police told the Sipa news agency.
The Croatian fans weren't allowed to buy tickets for the Tuesday match and were banned from France amid fears of hooliganism.
About 100 PSG supporters were turned back from the Croatian border ahead of the Oct. 24 match to head off similar problems.
Hooliganism has been rife among a section of hardcore PSG supporters since 1985, until a crackdown by the club following the deaths of two supporters in 2006 and 2010.
