Only six minutes of play were possible at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, the kick-off of which had been delayed by 35 minutes due to crowd disturbances. It was subsequently decided to abandon the match in order to ensure the safety and security of all parties involved due to the disturbances and flares thrown by the Serbian fans.
