Watch Fiorentina and Inter Milan fans in ugly brawl before Serie A clash with 18 supporters facing TEN-YEAR stadium bans

BRAWLING Inter Milan fans face TEN-YEAR stadium bans after ugly clashes with Fiorentina supporters before Tuesday's Serie A clash.

Police reportedly found iron and wooden sticks inside fans' cars after the Florence flare-up.



Calciomercato.com claim cops already knew 13 of the 18 Inter supporters who have been charged with offences.

And police are also said to have identified 12 other fans caught up in the fighting.

The ugly scenes erupted in Piazza Alberti, five minutes driving from the Artemio Franchi Stadium.

A video published by Football Italia shows two rival groups trading blows in the middle of the street.

And police are investigating if yet more supporters can be picked out as trouble-makers, on top of the 30 already identified.

Serie A stadiums are still at around half-capacity as the Covid-19 pandemic continues, meaning 16,000 saw champions Inter go top with a 3-1 comeback win.

Matteo Darmian, Edin Dzeko and Ivan Perisic struck in the second half to overturn Riccardo Sottil's opener.

Fiorentina then had Nicolas Gonzalez sent off late on for two quickfire bookings.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi said: “We suffered in the first half-hour and Fiorentina deserve credit for that.

"Then we fought back and scored three goals, there could even have been more. 

"It was not easy, so this was the performance of a great team.

“I am above all pleased with the reaction, because going behind like that to a team on their turf, with such enthusiasm in the stands and on the pitch, that is no mean feat."
