Croatian Fans Banned From Paris

Fans of Croatian football side Dinamo Zagreb have been banned from attending Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League fixture against Paris Saint-Germain in Paris.

In a tit-for-tat decision after Paris Saint-Germain fans were banned from attending the Zagreb leg, French Interior Minister Manuel Valls has banned the Croatians from attending the Paris match, sighting “a threat to security and property” as the reason.

Paris Saint-Germain beat Dinamo Zagreb in a trouble-free match 2-0 in Zagreb on 24 October.
