SHOCKING images show brawls between Man City and Chelsea fans as they gather in Porto ahead of the Champions League final.
Hundreds of fans are already in Portugal for Saturday's big game featuring the two English teams.
However, tempers have boiled over as supporters booze at local bars in the city.
One clip shows two small groups of fans scuffling outside a boozer including two lads who exchange punches and kicks.
Others at the bar throw drinks at each other before police officers with batons disperse the crowd.
Pictures from earlier on Friday also show fans brawling in the centre of Porto before the European Cup final.
Thursday saw the second night of violence in the city as riot cops had to disperse brawling fans as staff closed pubs due to Covid restrictions.
A number of supporters were not aware of the strict 10.30pm drinking curfew to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, reports the Mirror.
People were involved in clashes with police officers, it has been reported.
Two fans were reportedly injured after shameful clashes near Porto’s Sao Bento railway station and in the city’s riverside quarter.
One Chelsea fan was pictured drenched in claret as blood poured from his mouth which had been busted open.
A witness said: “It was pretty minor – some people wanted another drink and the police were determined to move people on and back to their hotels.
“There was no trouble between Chelsea and City fans.”
Trouble is also said to have flared after City fans started taunting holidaying Manchester United fans whose team had just gone out on penalties to Villarreal in the Europa League final.
Police sources said incidents of fighting had been resolved “quickly.”
