Fans from Zurich Football Club and Naples threw bottles and damaged property.

Fans with their faces covered also fired rockets into the opposing groups.

One witness says there were unconscious people on the ground. An innocent driver was caught up in the brawl and her car was damaged.

Police in riot gear managed to separate the fans later in the evening.

The match at the Letzigrund kicked off at 9pm last night and was a sellout.
