Police were out in force in central Belgrade on Sunday, in the lead up to the fierce city derby between FC Partizan and FC Red Star at the JNA stadium.

Local media report that there have been several clashes between fans of both teams, including a major one 15 km (9 miles) from the venue where the match was due to take place.

Tempers flared inside the stadium as well, where the Red Star fans — also known as 'the Delije' — clashed with a riot police squad on the visitors' stand.

The match ended up with a 2-0 win for FC Partizan, much to the delight of their fans, also known as 'the Gravediggers.'
