Three Dinamo Zagreb fans were sentenced and fined by a French court after clashes with Paris Saint-Germain fans ahead of a European Champions League football match.

The three got four months in prison and were fined between 800 and 1,000 euros each, reports Xinhua.

The court also banned them from travelling to Paris and the region for five years.

The court said the Croatian fans "came to fight and only for that", noting that at the site of the brawl, one was carrying a crutch without any medical reason, another was carrying a truncheon and the third had a belt rolled around his hand.

Supporters of the two teams clashed in street fights at the popular night haunt of Place de la Bastille Monday night, which led to over 100 arrests.
