Seven German supporters were arrested in Klagenfurt after incidents with Polish fans late Saturday on the eve of their Euro-2008 encounter, local police said.

The first incidents of the tournament involving about 100 supporters took place in the centre of the Carinthian capital. After glasses were thrown the police moved in to separate the two camps.

Nearly 25,000 Germans and 20,000 Poles were expected for Sunday's Group B match.

Some 2,300 police, including Polish officers, were to be mobilized on Sunday, with 2,000 security agents being held in reserve. The matches in Klagenfurt involving Germany, Poland and Croatia are deemed high-risk because of the fans' reputation for violence.
