Two Chelsea supporters were stabbed in Istanbul last night ahead of tomorrow’s UEFA Champions League match against Galatasaray in Turkey.

The Guardian reported that:

“At least two Chelsea supporters were stabbed in clashes around Istanbul’s Taksin Square on Tuesday night, the eve of the first leg of the club’s Champions League knockout tie against Galatasaray.

“Trouble reportedly flared after a bar being frequented by English fans was targeted in a city that has been on high alert over political and social unrest over recent days. Local demonstrations are scheduled for Wednesday in Taksin Square as protests escalate against the current government in Turkey.”
