Scores Of PSG Fans Arrested For Hooliganism In Response To Champions League Loss Against Bayern

Police in Paris, France, say about 148 Paris Saint Germain fans have been arrested after setting cars ablaze and vandalising shops in response to a UEFA Champions League 1-0 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in Portugal last night.

The supporters were left frustrated after the French giants failed to convert a number of opportunities into victory and the French international, Coman punished them.

PSG had a number of opportunities especially in the first half when the club’s forwards – Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Junior’s strikes were saved by Neuer.

The French Ligue 1 cup winners were in the finals for the first time and had high hopes after a spectacular display in the lively first half.

Around 5 000 supporters had reportedly gathered at Paris’s Parc des Princes to cheer on PSG, lighting flares and chanting as they watched the 1-0 defeat in Lisbon on a big screen.

After the clash at the ground, late-night clashes erupted on the Champs-Elysees, where vehicles were set on fire, windows broken and shops vandalised.

Supporters previously clashed with police following their 3-0 win over RB Leipzig in the semi-finals.
