There have been violent scenes in Basel as Liverpool and Sevilla fans clashed behind one of the goals before kick off in the Europa League final.

Footage shows fans throw objects at each other as stewards struggled to regain control.

The St Jakob Stadium only has a capacity of 38,000 and it is suspected that some fans may have bought tickets from outside the official allocation of 10,000 for each club, meaning fans were not fully segregated.

The game has now kicked off and the situation appears to have calmed.
