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.

Initial reports claimed that seven were injured seriously.

Roma won the game 3-0 thanks to a brace from Edin Dzeko and a cooly-taken goal from Cengiz Under who has been heavily linked with Arsenal in recent weeks.
