About a dozen people needed hospital treatment, including four police officers who were treated for fractures and neck injuries, according to reports on Belgian radio and newspaper Web sites.

The trouble started when Brugge fans threw stones and traffic signs at police outside the King Boudouin Stadium in Brussels before the game Saturday night.

Police arrested 14 fans on charges that included rioting, drug possession and assault.

Brugge won the game 1-0.
