Bamburg (AP / lno) – The Hamburg police prevented a dispute between fans of FC St. Pauli and Hamburger SV. A resident had Saturday between 150 and 200 people dressed in black reported to the police. It turned out that they were supporters of the FC St. Pauli, who moved close to the Great Freedom. The police formed a police cordon on the spot, at the sight of which the group disbanded.
Almost simultaneously, a group of about 50 black supporters from the HSV found their way to the Reeperbahn. However, this has also been solved with the arrival of the arriving police officers. In the Davidstraße, officials later checked a group of eight HSV fans. Three of them were arrested because of their aggressive behavior towards the police. A residence ban was imposed against the other five. A clash of supporters from both clubs could be prevented, so there were no major riots. The police said they had more than 60 officers in action.
