A judge has ordered two AS Roma fans arrested after an attack on Tottenham supporters at a Rome pub to remain in jail pending a decision on whether to formally charge them.

Police had said Friday that the two were accused of attempted homicide, causing injury and causing a fight before the English club's Europa League match against Lazio.  

But attorney Lorenzo Contucci, who is representing one of the men - Francesco Ianari - said the stiffest charge the men faced at a preliminary hearing Sunday was aggravated injury.

He said an anticipated charge of attempted homicide, with an aggravating element for the racial character of the attack, ''disappeared.''

During the brawl early Thursday, witnesses quoted by Italian news reports said the attackers shouted ''Jew'' at the Tottenham fans.

Tottenham has a large Jewish fan base from north London.
