But it was too much to take for some travelling supporters.

Pictures and video footage captured some Raposas fans taking part in some unsavoury behaviour.

Several of them appeared to throw punches at Italian stewards, who attempted to keep them away from Roma fans who were already behind barriers.

And Italian riot police were soon called upon to sort out the disruption.

Armed with shields and batons, the police stormed the stands to take up a position in front of Roma stewards.

And they successfully pushed the Leicester fans away to provide some safe distance for all.

As for the game, Leicester started positively enough, forcing an early corner which James Maddison flighted in and Chris Smalling clumsily pinned Wesley Fofana down to prevent him making his run.

But Serbian ref Srdjan Jovanovic saw nothing amiss to the Foxesfury and, having been let off the hook, Roma went on to dominate the first half.

Their inspirational skipper Lorenzo Pellegrini led the charge with a dipping free kick which beat Leicester’s two man wall but Kasper Schmeichel brilliantly beat the ball into the turf and over his crossbar.

As Roma prepared for the corner, Brendan Rodgers confused them by leaving three men – Maddison, Lookman and Barnes on the halfway line against TWO home defenders, before Mourinho roared for another body to stay back.

But the ploy failed to pay-off as Roma scored from their next corner as Abraham cashed in.

Pelligrini sept the ball into the heart of the Foxes box and the former Chelsea striker soared above Ricardo Pereira to power home his 27th goal of an incredible season.

It was just the start Rodgers must have dreaded and it could have been worse as Pellegrini ran riot, finding space all over the park to strut his stuff.

WHAM BAM TAM

Schmeichel defied Roma’s leader again, shovelling Pellegrini’s angled shot for another corner, then Nicolo Zaniolo was a stud’s length away from finishing off a Pellegrini delivery.

Vardy sent Roger Ibanez crashing with a tackle straight from his Stockbridge Steelers days before Fofana deflected a Zaniolo shot as Roma turned the screw.

Tempers were fraying and Mancini was booked for an over the ball tackle on Kiernan Dewsbury Hall and at the break Roma had managed four shots on target to Leicester’s none.

Rodgers sent on Kelechi Iheanacho and Daniel Amartey for wingers Ademola Lookman and Barnes at the start of the second half.

But a long range shot way off target from Dewsbury-Hall summed up their lack of firepower.

Even when Maddison picked out Vardy with a cleverly disguised corner the veteran’s shot crashed off Abraham, who was doing more than most to end England’s interest in this competition.

In a last throw of the dice Rodgers sent on Timothy Castagne and then Ayoze Perez for Pereira and Dewsbury-Hall.

But a couple of long-range shots from Maddison, then Iheanacho were easily gathered by Rui Patricio as the Foxes Euro dream fizzled out in frustration.
