BREAKING: UEFA Champions League kick off delayed due to security issue
UEFA Champions League kick off has been delayed by half an hour due to security issues. Small number of fans ran through gates at Stade de France and the security was unable to stop them.
According to some reports, tear gas was sued on the unruly fans to control them. Earlier Liverpool’s team bus got stuck in traffic jam in Paris as they raced to get to Stade de France for the Champions League final.
BBC reporter who was outside the stadium said, "This is the first time I've been pepper-sprayed at a football game! The Liverpool fans are behaving themselves!”
The final is being played between Liverpool and Real Madrid. Six Liverpool players will appear in their third Champions League final for the club - Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk.
This becomes the first fixture to be played in three European Cup or Champions League finals. Liverpool won 1-0 in 1981 and lost 3-1 in 2018.
