Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJuly 30, 2014

The Champions League qualifying match between Ukrainian side Dnipro and FC Copenhagen came to an abrupt halt on Wednesday night as Dnipro fans overwhelmed stewards in a bid to attack visiting Copenhagen supporters. 

Judging by the footage of the events, the large group of supporters rushed the pitch, hopped the fences and attacked the stewards. 

One Copenhagen supporter was seen grabbing the flags the away support put up and escaping the trouble.
