Leicester’s Europa League clash with Napoli descended into violence in the King Power stands at the end of the match.

It looked like it would be an evening to remember for the Foxes as goals from Ayoze Perez and Harvey Barnes put them 2-0 up.

But a brilliant double from Victor Osimhen secured a point for Napoli, and there was worse to come.

Wilfred Ndidi was sent off in the dying minutes before violence erupted between the two sets of supporters.

A bust-up involving around 20-30 fans was sparked and involved plastic bottles being thrown.

Police were called in to calm things down as a group of Leicester fans scrambled over safety netting to attack Napoli supporters.

An appeal went out over the King Power’s speaker system asking fans to “respect your club” by “moving away from the segregation line”.

Other reports claim that there were clashes between Napoli ultras and Leicester City fans before and after the 2-2 Europa League draw.

Simone Guadagno of CalcioNapoli24 shared video of the ugly scenes as supporters had running battles in the street outside De Montfort University before kick-off.

They were seen using belts and chairs as makeshift weapons.

There were not meant to be any Napoli ultras travelling for this game due to COVID restrictions, but some managed to either make the trip or came from other countries.

The problems continued inside the King Power Stadium, as after the final whistle, local police formed a cordon to push back Napoli supporters who were celebrating the comeback from 2-0 down to draw 2-2.

According to local reporters, the incidents started when Leicester fans threw plastic bottles at the Napoli supporters, trying to breach the segregation line.
