CSKA Sofia fans banned from Litex Lovech

SOFIA - CSKA Sofia fans will not be allowed to attend away matches at Litex Lovech after violence marred last weekend's Bulgarian league encounter, the Lovech-based club said in a statement. CSKA's hopes of retaining the title vanished on Sunday when they lost 1-0 to Litex, while police arrested 27 supporters during and after the match for hooliganism. Dozens of CSKA fans invaded the pitch and clashed with riot police during the closing stages of the game following a disallowed goal, causing the match to be held up for several minutes. Ugly scenes, however, continued in the visiting supporters' sector after the match with fans hurling objects including plastic seats while there're also scuffles outside the stadium.
