Leicester vs Legia Warsaw witnesses crowd trouble with police officers injured

    Leicester City’s 3-1 Europa League group stage win over Legia Warsaw was marred by clashed between supporters that left several police officers injured.

    It marks the second time that one of the Foxes’ European games has witnessed crowd trouble this season, with their clash against Napoli on match day one also affected.

    As reported by LeicestershireLive, just after the hour mark on Thursday night, numerous flares were let off simultaneously in the away end at the King Power Stadium. Using this smoke screen as cover, Legia’s travelling support than attempted to reach the East Stand to brawl with Leicester fans.

    Hundreds of police officers – some with riot gear on – managed to force them back, after some hooligans attempted the scale the netting separating the two sets of spectators.

    They continued to cause trouble for some time, but calm were eventually restored with around ten minutes left to play in the match.
