Fans lit fires and set off fireworks and smoke bombs. One fan attacked a police officer. 

Fights broke out in the centre of the city. Four people have been arrested. 

Young Boys lost 1:2. The Bern club’s progression in the tournament now seems unlikely. They will have to win against Glasgow Rangers in Scotland in a couple of weeks to make sure they stay in. Pundits say that’s unlikely.
