Essen secured a 3-2 away win with a late goal on Tuesday evening and trouble, which had already been brewing in the Muenster stadium, got out of hand when rival fans clashed on streets near the ground.

German Police mentioned that 30 persons confirmed injured, 24 people were treated in or around the stadium, four were taken to hospital and two received emergency care.

A lot of stadium stewards were among the casualties, as was a pensioner, who was really hurt after being pushed off stairs in the stadium when away fans charged.

Muenster police say investigations are in progress to look into the allegations of dangerous bodily harm, stopping arrest, and destroying property.

German daily Bild announced that 19 people were detained.
