Feyenoord were in the Italian capital to take on Roma in the Europa League and a group of travelling Dutch fans are believed to be responsible for causing a ruckus in the north side of the city.

Footage has appeared showing damage to the fountain at the bottom of the steps and a general commotion before violent shots of riot police moving in and getting physical with some of the visitors.
