Police charges against Celtic fans for brawls on Madrid terraces

Madrid, 2 Nov. The Madrid Municipal Police has made several charges against Glasgow Celtic fans for causing incidents on terraces of the capital, where this Wednesday they face Real Madrid in the last day of the Champions League group stage.

The altercations took place this Tuesday, All Saints’ Day, in the Matheu passage and in the Victoria street, very close to the Puerta del Sol, where hundreds of fans of the Scottish club were concentrated in the bars eating and drinking, sources from the local Corps inform Efe.

In some of these establishments there were incidents related, among others, to the payment of drinks, which caused municipal agents to come to the scene.

The response of the Celtic fans was not peaceful, so the police were forced to make small charges against some radicals, who even threw glasses and glass bottles at the interveners.

Some 10,000 Scottish fans will gather in the capital this Wednesday, of which only 3,500 travel with a ticket to watch the match between Real Madrid and Celtic Glasgow at 9:00 p.m. at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium.

The National Police evicted this Tuesday at an Albacete station 40 Scottish radicals who were traveling by AVE from Alicante to Madrid, since they were bothering other passengers and Renfe workers.

The party, declared high risk, will have a security device of about 1,800 troops. EFE
