LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (AP) - Police in Slovenia say hooligans have attacked Sevilla fans after a Europa League match against Maribor, injuring four people.

Police said on Friday that assailants in cars followed the Spanish fans’ bus after the match late Thursday until it stopped on a highway rest area. The attackers then came out of their cars and started beating the rival fans.

Police say the attackers fled the scene before the police arrived. Four Spanish fans were briefly hospitalized.

The Maribor-Sevilla match ended 2-2.
