Italian media is reporting that four Bayern Munich fans were briefly hospitalized with stab wounds before Tuesday's Champions League match against Napoli.

The ANSA news agency reports that two men were admitted to hospital after being stabbed near the San Paolo Stadium Tuesday afternoon. One had suffered a knife injury to his knee.

Earlier, ANSA reported that two men aged 42 and 47, respectively, were hospitalized after telling police they were walking in town late Monday when people aboard two scooters stabbed them in their backs with a knife.

Naples Mayor Luigi de Magistris condemned the stabbings saying ''episodes like this offend the festive spirit and positive expectations around the city.''
