Follow the coverage of Europa League round of 16 Draw
Fighting broke out last night in the historic centre of Bilbao as ultras from the Basque side fought with APOEL Nicosia supporters in town for the Europa League round of 16 first leg.
The altercation occurred beside the Arriaga Theatre at 22:00 CET and as a result a Cypriot supporter was taken to Basurto hospital with injuries to his face following the impact of a bottle.
The fight was quickly broken up by swift police intervention. 1,600 APOEL fans are expected to attend the Europa League game at San Mamés (kick-off 21:05 CET) and the presence of 200 APOEL ultras has deemed the game declared as "high-risk" by local Bilbao law enforcement agencies.
