A group of reportedly drunk Feyenoord supporters draw intervention from riot police in the Italian capital ahead of the Europa League clash with Roma.

Several outlets this evening are reporting on clashes between police and the visiting Dutch supporters, whose side face the Giallorossi in the Round of 32 tomorrow evening.

A group of Feyenoord fans apparently congregated at the neighbourhood square of Campo de Fiori, many of them allegedly drunk, and started shouting and throwing bottles and other objects in the vicinity.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the mob to have been 500-strong, while Il Corriere dello Sport relate them to be closer to 1,000.

Shops in Campo de Fiori were apparently closed and the neighbourhood effectively besieged as riot police were brought in.

The supporters apparently started throwing bottles at the police as well, resulting in 12 arrests, according to La Repubblica.

Rome operates an alcohol-ban in public selling-points on days preceding and coinciding with major football games, but the Feyenoord supporters are being reported as drunk.
