Fri 26 November 2021 | 12:47

During Leicester City’s 3-1 win over Legia Warsaw in the Europa League group stage game, fans clashed and many police officers were left injured.

This is the second time there has been crowd trouble this season in the Foxes’ European games, with the battle against

Napoli

also affected.

As per reports from

LeicestershireLive

, many flares were let off all together in King Power Stadium’s away end. They used the smoke screen as cover, with Legia’s travelling support attempting to go to the East Stand to fight with Leicester supporters.

A great number of police officers, some having riot gear on, were able to force them back.

They kept making trouble for a while, but they were calmed eventually with 10 minutes left to play in the game.

After the match, Leicestershire Police’s football unit said that some of their officers were hurt in the process.

"

Long day/night. A number of arrests have been made of away supporters during the evening, some officers have been injured,"

a statement read.

"Thanks to you LCFC fans for your support, further updates will follow in the coming days."

Brendan Rodgers’ side enjoyed a great night on the pitch, however.

Sitting bottom of the group and going into the clash, they ended the game top of the pile courtesy of the comfortable victory.

Patson Daka scored the opener in the first half before James Maddison made their lead double. Legia, however, managed to score one before Wilfred Ndidi netted another for his side to secure their victory.
