During the second half, a group of away fans tried to break into the forbidden area, but they eventually returned to their sector. Pyrotechnics and minor riots appeared in the camps of fans of both clubs.
Police have documented the fans’ actions and will be evaluating them, they tweeted.
According to the state police, five Brno fans fought with three Sparta supporters. Police are investigating the altercation as potential hooliganism and bodily harm, police spokesman Bohumil Malášek said.
“We treated three men,” confirmed Barbora Truksová Zuchová, a spokeswoman for the rescue service. At first, she said the injuries were rather lighter, superficial, or bruised. One of the men was later confirmed to have a fractured leg in the hospital, Truksová Zuchová added.
“Unfortunately, we cannot comment on the exact numbers of people and the course of the attack due to the very fresh investigation. The Police of the Czech Republic then arrived at the scene and we handed over the actors,” Ghanem said.
“We have taken over the incident, we are finding out all the circumstances,” spokesman Malášek said.
Zbrojovka hosted Sparta today at the stadium in Srbská Street and lost 0: 4. The match was accompanied by extensive security measures, starting after noon.
