Footage on X, formerly known as Twitter, shows a group of people – thought to be Newcastle fans – stuck inside a pub as chairs and drinks are thrown at the restaurant’s front entrance by both groups.

Bright red flares just outside the front doors can also be seen plaguing the area making it hard to see through the smoke.

According to @GeordieJord who posted the video, the Newcastle fans in the 30 second clip were sat outside a bar having a drink moments before the video started.

It’s also believed there were children, women and families having a drink at the same place when the situation badly escalated.

Many of the people seen throwing chairs at the glass windows have hidden their identities by wearing hoods and face masks.

Throughout the chaos a voice can be heard pleading for the fighting to end.

A man says: “Stop it, Stop, Stop it.”

The awful situation happened less than 24 hours before their crucial Champions League group stage match that Newcastle need to win to have a chance to qualify for the knockout round.

The teams are both still battling it out to qualify from Group F as all four teams can still go through.

The clip has already got over 440,000 views and has several comments noting that similar issues occured in the return fixture when Parisians came to Newcastle.

Back in October, Newcastle breezed past PSG, battering them 4-1 in their only win in Europe this year but before the game fans clashed and videos showed both sets of fans being aggressive and having to be quickly separated.

Videos show bottles and flares being thrown back and forth between both sets of fans.

Many of those filmed have their hoods up.

Chants of “Who are ya?” could be heard as Newcastle supporters taunted the travelling Parisians on their way to the stadium.

While police officers lined the streets and acted as a barrier between PSG’s away following and the Toon Army.

When Newcastle played Borussia Dortmund in October nine people were reportedly arrested.

There was a heavy police presence on the streets approaching the ground pre match and cops have now revealed eight men and a woman have been detained.

Dortmund supporters were heard chanting in both German and English as fights reportedly broke out between rival fans, with cops attempting to keep them apart.
