Five Eintracht fans are arrested in Seville.

They are said to have attacked supporters of Glasgow Rangers.

Seville – Five SGE fans were arrested ahead of the Europa League final between Eintracht Frankfurt and Glasgow Rangers.

According to the Spanish police, they were part of a group of 200 supporters.

The officials' allegation: They are said to have attacked Scottish fans near the cathedral in Seville - specifically it's about "disturbing public peace" and "aggression".

Accordingly, it apparently happened on Wednesday night (May 18th).

Police say flares, tables and bottles were thrown at officers.

So there were no serious injuries.

However, a Rangers fan suffered a head laceration.

Eintracht fans arrested: police spokesman fears "serious problems"

Police chief Juan Carlos Castro expressed concern over the incidents.

He had previously expressed concerns and saw "serious problems" coming.

"This is outrageous," said Castro, looking at the expected 150,000 football fans.

Of these, 50,000 will be from Frankfurt and 100,000 from Glasgow.

"That's too many people with too much alcohol, most without a ticket to the game.

And there are many construction sites in the city.

All of this can lead to serious problems,” the police officer feared.

In order to keep the situation in Seville under control, 5,500 security forces are deployed in what Castro calls "the most difficult game in recent years".

Both clubs have received 10,000 tickets for the final in the 44,000-seat Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

It can be assumed that most fans will follow the game in fan zones during public viewings.
