Lazio and Roma are both teams in teams and the Coppa Italia is the cup final for Italian soccer so it was a big game for each club.
Soccer being what it is it’s not really surprising that fans of rival clubs bring weapons to games. In fact I was personally at a “friendly” preseason game between London teams Millwall and Tottenham when I was 13 or 14 years old at which a fight broke out after the game and someone was stabbed and this was almost expected.
So here’s what the Italian police confiscated before the game.
Perhaps they were planning on doing some sod work if the grass was uneven. Though I’m not sure why they’d need kitchen knives for that but hey these are the descendents of great and glorious Rome. Who am I to question?
