Liverpool and Sevilla fans have not been segregated in certain areas of St. Jakob Park this evening and, perhaps unsurprisingly, this has led to some fighting before the Europa League final.

Several shocking videos have been posted on social media of the fights, which feature dozens of supporters. (Scroll down this page to watch the videos).

A whole group of agitated fans congregated behind one of the goals and can be seen throwing punches.

Other supporters inside the 38,000-capacity stadium can heard booing on the video, while UEFA have been criticised for failing to put enough stewards on duty to separate the two sets of fans.

Journalists at the match also reported that riot police didn’t turn up until the situation had calmed down.
