During the first leg, in the Olympic State of Rome, the player received Racist insults by the ultras of Lazio -from fascist ideology-. There, some fans of the Glasgow team showed a banner showing the silhouette of Mussolini hanging by the feet in it with the message "Follow your leader" ("Follow your leader").
Also in the first leg there were strong altercations by the Italian ultras. A fight, with several stabbings, left five Italians arrested for possession of baseball bats and knives.
Ntcham's goal left the Lazio classification practically sentenced. With three points, six less than the Romanian Cluj, its existence will be played in the next two days.
