Up to 30 CSKA Moscow fans were injured in a Rome train station on Tuesday night when an escalator sped out of control.
The fans were on their way to the Champions League tie against Roma when the escalator at the Repubblica Station sped up suddenly, sending people hurtling down the stairs where they piled up at the bottom.
