    There were appalling scenes in Sweden as AIK ultras went on the rampage during their side’s game at bitter rivals Djurgarden.

    After Djurgarden took the lead through Marcus Danielson in the 82nd minute, AIK saw two players, Axel Bjornstrom and Eric Ouma, sent off in the 90th and 92nd minutes respectively.

    Those reds were followed by appalling scenes in the away end, with AIK ultras, who were dressed in black, hurling missiles onto the pitch and storming to the front of the stand, where they pushed over an advertising hoarding.

    A fan who tweeted a clip of the scenes wrote: “Big excesses during this Djurgarden-AIK [game] – AIK supporters face the police, 7th game without a win for AIK which finds itself 15th out of 16th.”

    A separate video, shot from inside the away section, shows riot police with dogs having projectiles, including a firework, thrown at them.

    The @SwedeStats account tweeted: “Someone from the AIK stand threw a firework close to one of the dogs that the police had in front of the stands.”

    As a result of the disturbance, the game, which was in its final moments, had to be halted. Further pictures emerged on social media of police lined up in front of the away section.

    The game was eventually concluded with the scoreline remaining 1-0. The result left Djurgarden fourth in the Swedish top flight with AIK 15th with just one win and six points from 10 games. Only winless Varbergs BolS languish below them in the standings.

    Djurgarden vs AIK is regarded as the fiercest derby in Swedish football, with the clubs historically being the country’s biggest and most successful. Both sides have won the Allsvenskan titles 12 times.
