Claims of a clash between Spanish police and Manchester City fans prior to the club's Champions League match against Real Madrid have been reported.

Natalie Pike, a matchday presenter at the English club but in the Spanish capital as a fan, tweeted about a disturbance at a bar.

About an hour before kick-off she tweeted: "Just watched spanish police batter city fans. A big group of about 100 of us outside a bar opposite the stadium and they tore in battons up. No one doing any harm at all. Very scary stuff. So out of order."
