Around 200 Lazio hooligans clashed with riot police near the Stadio Olimpico ahead of the side’s Italian cup final against Atalanta on Wednesday.
The clashes broke out at around 7.10pm local time as Lazio hardcore fans apparently tried to break through a police cordon to reach Atalanta fans. The troublemakers threw stones, bottles and other objects while police responded with water cannons and tear gas.
One police car was set on fire. Two other police cars also were damaged while several fans were arrested.
