Tanjug is reporting that another football club from the Serbian capital Belgrade, Partizan FC, lost their game 3-2 at home to FC Dynamo Kiev, in a game played in the same competition.

There was tension in Cologne throughout the day on Thursday due to a large number of Red Star fans arriving in the town for the game. This led to a large number of police being deployed in the streets, and reports of arrests and minor incidents.

But the local police found a way to communicate with the guests by posting two messages on Twitter, partially in Serbian.

The first, translated literally, reads, "It's not as relaxed as this everywhere."

A second tweet combines hashtags, street names in German, and the words "closed between" in Serbian, to announce that the streets in question had been shut down at the time.
