On the explosive Ostderby in the 3rd football league between Carl Zeiss Jena and Energie Cottbus it came on Saturday (06.04.2019) after the last whistle to the dreaded riots. According to the police, around 20 home fans attacked three cars with energy trailers that had followed the Cottbus team bus at the exit.
To clarify the situation, the police used water cannons for a short time. "Because the attacks were a violation of peace, the police picked up the personal information of potential participants and witnesses after the fan project," said the police report of Saturday night.
Before the match, police officers also stopped in downtown Jena, a seemingly planned dispute of 25 guest fans with Jena supporters. The game between the former rivals of the GDR Oberliga was previously classified as a risk game and the police were increased accordingly.
In general, the police have drawn an "almost positive balance", as drawn up by the National Police Directorate Jena on Saturday night.
