Rival Fans Clash on Croatian Motorway

Rival football fans have clashed on a Croatian motorway on Wednesday…

Witnesses say around 150 of Hajduk Split’s ‘Toricda’ fans have clashed with around 80 ‘Bad Blue Boys’ from Dinamo Zagreb on the Rijeka – Zagreb motorway as both sets of fans were making their way to cup games on Wednesday. Police confirmed that they were alerted to the dust-up just after 1pm. Although a number of people were injured in the fracas, there are no reports how serious those injuries are. Travelling in different directions, the fans crossed the motorway to start the fight. Traffic was stopped as a result, says 24sata.
Dinamo Zagreb were playing their cup tie in Pula on Wednesday, whilst Hajduk Split were playing not too far from Zagreb in Jastrebarsko.
