Eintracht fans had been banned from the game following unrest during the first leg of their two game fixture. Hundreds of ticketless Eintracht fans nevertheless arrived in the city, clashing with local police. Police in riot gear used tear gas to disperse the fans who threw chairs and shot projectiles and flares at the officers.

Anche per i tifosi tedeschi e anche per la società di calcio Francoforte ci saranno conseguenze
non sarà cosi per me , io avrei lasciato fare ai napoletani,via le forze del ordine inutili….nessuno dei tedeschi tornava a casa…diventava concime per ortaggi
@ER CAM ja ne ist klar 😂
Lol, “culturally gifted” and “civilised” part of Europe, unlike us from the southeastern Europe. 😆👍🇪🇺
Yeah and Italy, Romania and Hungary took part in it. If I had a nickel for everytime the second world war is mentioned in an online discussion, I would be a millionaire
@Marcel Mathes A girarvi i pollici?
@Marcel Mathesyeah sure, more like go back to drinking
@Marcel Mathes ach so then you destroy a city and then continue like nothing happened? A ja as in 1945 more or less…
@Alessandro Ogheri and another nickel…
You guys all act like they nuked Naples and it was wiped from the face of the earth.
The SSC ultras thrashed their own city/fought the police also by the way.
Goethe say : napoli see and die❤
It will be interesting to see what happens now with the German fans. Imagine a British club doing this.
@Hm Vollbanane Doesn’t matter,ban all Germans fans
There’s no imagining, they do so every time
i think they gonna be exluded from european competitions for about 2 years and for sure stadium closed for months
These guys arent fans. These guys are just people which are unhappy in their normal lifes. It is a shame for me as a german football-fan to watch this massive hate.
@19Aaron04 Destroied it’s a bit to much actually
@19Aaron04 german women ahah
Napoli won in the stadium but who cares. They lost at the street tho
@19Aaron04 No Naples hasn’t been destroyed, they just cowardly messed up in a small street against innocents and then ran away. Loosing 5-0 😂
Das sind keine Eintracht Fans .Das ist eine Schande. Fremdschämen und Wut das passiert mit mir !!!
Dann schau dir doch ne Doku an

Respect to Eintracht. Top boys taking it to Napoli

What do you expect when you are trying to ban people from a city in the european zone?

The Big problem is: This is Football
Why not against the Politicians like that
Respekt an Frankfurt 💪🏼
Respekt an deine Mutter 🦾sie war auch in Neapel
Respect frankfurt from Besiktas. polish and german hooligans number 1
What age are you 10 ?
Piccolino non ti rispondiamo ma vai a scuola e vivi da civile
It is a shame!
This happened after Germans found out there were no krauts and sausages left in Naples
it’s not football, fan groups, ultras or hooligans, it’s the human nature that is designed to fight for the ideas that u believe in and for the group that u belong to.
La grande idea di una partita di pallone.😂
Looks like football to me.
In fact humas are being made to fight each other it always Been that case since forever nowadays wars are rare but fights murders robberies happens every day
