Paris police arrest six Frenchmen after rioting with Newcastle fans before the start of the Champions League match

Paris police have arrested six people after riots between PSG and Newcastle United supporters in the French capital on Monday evening. The AFP news agency learned this from police sources. Both teams will meet each other on Tuesday evening (at 9 p.m.) on the fifth matchday of the group stage of the Champions League.

Four of the six people arrested were already known to the police as rioters. Several dozen French supporters confronted English fans in front of a cafe in Paris on Monday evening. They were dressed in black and masked. Images on social media show beer glasses and chairs flying through the air in a café.

The six people arrested are accused of “participating in a group event aimed at using violence against other persons or destroying property,” the Paris prosecutor’s office confirmed. The matter is under further investigation.

In the first leg last month, Newcastle gave PSG a cold shower with a 4-1 defeat. At least 2,000 English supporters are said to have descended on Paris.

Borussia Dortmund (seven points) are in the lead in Group F, with PSG on one point and AC Milan on two points. Newcastle are last with four points.
