A colleague of mine who is an expert in Russian football predicted that Zenit v Hajduk would kick off, and he was absolutely right. Neither club has angels for fans, apparently.

According to reports, about 50 Zenit ultras stormed a St Petersburg hotel on Wednesday night to attack Hajduk Split fans before Thursday’s Europa League match between the two clubs (Zenit won 2-0). Mental.

After the attack, several Split fans needed hospital treatment for head injuries. You might say they had Splitting headaches…
