Chelsea and Man City fans brawl on streets of Madrid in shocking scenes ahead of Champions League ties

CHELSEA and Manchester City yobs had to be separated by riot police as they fought in Madrid.

The shocking scenes unfolded in the famous Plaza Mayor square in the Spanish capital on Tuesday.



A total of 8,000 supporters were expected to travel from England to Spain to watch the Champions League quarter-final showdowns.

Chelsea faced Real Madrid in the Bernabeu on Tuesday, 24 hours before City's second leg at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano.

And video footage posted on social media showed rival followers confronting one another, shouting and chanting.

Then things spilt over as punches were thrown and drinks flew before the notoriously heavy-handed Madrid police rushed in with batons and shields to restore order.
