France: Tensions high in Paris after pre-match clashes

Tensions were high outside the Stade de France in Paris, Saturday, after the match between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and SC Bastia. PSG fans could be seen letting of smoke bombs and flares and shouting and gesturing at buses that had SC Bastia fans on board. There was a large police presence to try and prevent further clashes. Before Saturday's Coupe de la Ligue final, SC Bastia fans clashed with police, injuring at least 15 people, and set a car on fire. PSG won the match 4-0 to retain the title with two goals apiece from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani.
