What started as a brilliant evening turned sour after the match was delayed due to fans being not allowed in the stadium. The situation got so worse that the kick-off had to be delayed by 36 minutes.

According to UEFA, the delay was due to fans arriving late in the stadium. Majority of the fans were from Liverpool who had failed to get inside.

Fans and journalists attending the game severely criticised the management of UEFA and Stade de FranceParc des Princes.

Here are some of the best reactions from the match:

Liverpool fans alleging they were pepper-sprayed

 

Stade de France – A chaos

 

Liverpool defender Joel Matip’s brother Marvin also accused police of using tear gas in areas with children.

 

 

Earlier in the day, both sets of fans were out in Paris’s streets to show support for their club.

 

 

Real Madrid can’t forget Kylian Mbappe

While the Frenchman did not feature in the final. Real Madrid fans made sure that they made their message clear in the city where Mbappe plays his football.

 

The record holders of the Champions League just added another to their collection. The Reds were good, but their profligacy on the night cost them a 2nd UCL title in 3 years. The way Madrid battled their way through some of the heavyweights of the competition made them deserving of the trophy.
