According to police testimony, more than 60 masked supporters were involved in the fracas, close to Munich's train station. 

Fans were later dispersed by officers wielding batons, and in the aftermath more than 30 individuals who had travelled to see PSG were detained.

Three Bayern supporters were also detained and held on assault charges, while one man was treated in hospital for a head wound. 

Bayern and PSG meet on the field on Tuesday in the Allianz Arena, with the Ligue 1 side in pole position to take top spot in their Champions League group. 

Jupp Heynckes' men will need nothing less than victory by a margin of four goals or more to topple PSG and reach the summit by virtue of a better head-to-head record.
