Clashes between Roma ultras and police after the Italian Cup derby


By John

Tensions between the Giallorossi ultras and the police in the post-match of the derby between Lazio and Roma which gave Maurizio Sarri’s Biancocelesti qualification to the semi-final of the Italian Cup. Around 200 Roma fans headed towards Ponte Milvio to look for a clash with the Lazio team. However, in via Consalvi, piazza Mancini and via del Pinturicchio they were blocked by the police. The fans reacted by throwing stones and sticks.
The men of the State Police, in riot gear, responded with lightening charges. Three Roma supporters were blocked in via Sacconi and will be identified. The wide-ranging services, organized by the Police Headquarters, prevented clashes between the two fans.
