UEFA officials have set up a Fan Zone for Liverpool fans in the east of the city at Cours de Vincennes, six miles from the ground, with the gates opening from midday and food and drink on offer as well as music from the Lightening Seeds.

Real who are only expected to have around 30,000 fans in Paris have a similar zone set up for them close to the stadium in the north of the city.

Around 7,000 police officers will be on duty for the game and the sale of alcohol around the ground has been banned from 6pm on Saturday until 2am on Sunday morning but fans will be able to drink in the stadium.

The area around the famous Champs-Elysses in the centre of Paris was closed on Thursday by police and will not reopen until Sunday evening.

A Paris police statement said: ‘For this occasion various measures have been put in place by the Prefecture de Police to ensure the smooth running of the match and to guarantee the fans safety in the vicinity of the Stade de France and the fan zones.’

The final was originally due to have been played in Saint Petersburg but UEFA moved it to France after stripping Russia of the glamour game following their invasion of Ukraine.

But some fans may not make it to match after facing long queues at the Port of Dover and UK airports.

Thousands of fans descended on the Kent port on Friday to board cross-Channel ferries en route to Paris for Saturday’s match.

Airline passengers were also stuck in lengthy queues at airports such as Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted and Bristol. 

One group of Liverpool fans also used a speedboat to get to France after their easyJet flight was cancelled.

The die hard supporters were trying to get to Paris in time for Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid. 

Paddy O’Toole and 12 others had to charter the novel way to cross the Channel late on Friday after their initial plans to fly were scuppered.

Two of the fans, Adam and Tom Dring, flew down to Heathrow to try and get another flight but they were unsuccessful so decided to team up with family friend Paddy who lives on Jersey.

The lads flew from Heathrow to Jersey and Paddy contacted a friend who runs a boat chartering firm called Le Mourier on the island.

Paddy told the Liverpool Echo: ‘They got a flight to Jersey last minute and they met up with us and asked could we get them to France.

‘We felt sorry for the young lads so we had to do something.’ 

How do the Liverpool WAGs measure up against the Spanish support squad? From a devout Christian doctor to a world-famous pop star, the Champions League finalists have VERY glamorous cheerleaders

By Harriet Johnston 

From a devout Christian doctor who’s a goodwill ambassador for the WHO to a member of one of the world’s must successful girl groups, the wives and partners of the Champions League finalists make for an impressive bunch. 

Liverpool taken on Real Madrid in Paris on Saturday night with the Reds looking for their seventh win in the competition, while Real, who are the most successful team in Champions League history, will hope to add to their 13 titles. 

And with stunning models, gorgeous influencers, proud parents and even a doctor all in the mix, there’s sure to be no shortage of support for the different teams.

While some might be recognisable for their own career achievements, such as popstar Perrie Edwards who is dating Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, others live a much more low-key life –  including Thiago Alcantara’s wife Julia Vigas whose focus is on running her family hotel business. 

Here’s the WAGS who’ll be cheering their husbands and boyfriends on from the stands on Saturday…

TV presenter and journalist Argentine Mina, 28, has been dating midfielder Federico Valverde since 2019.

The pair welcomed a son called Benicio in 2020, and the pair often share their family snaps on social media, where Argentine has over 500,000 followers. 

She has previously spoken of having an eating disorder since the age of 15, posting an Instagram caption in which she penned: ‘I have suffered from anorexia and bulimia, and when I say ‘I suffer’, it is because I am still struggling with the ghosts of food, the body and the distortion of body image.

‘And even if you are physically healthy, eating disorders are mental illnesses that take years to heal. Years of therapy, of acceptance and control.’

Federico has been swept up in controversy ahead of the match at the weekend as he  ratcheted up the tension, claiming Mohamed Salah ‘disrespected’ the Spanish side.

After beating Villarreal in the semi-final, the Egyptian had said he would rather play Real than their last-four opponents Manchester City in the final because he wanted to avenge their final defeat against the same opponents in 2018.

Salah told BT Sport in May: ‘I want to play Madrid, I have to be honest. City are a really tough team, we played against them a few times this season, but I think if you ask me personally, I would prefer Madrid.

‘Because we lost in the final against them, I want to play against them, and hopefully win against them.’

But Valverde told Marca that the forward’s comments were disrespectful to the club’s badge and its players, and insisted they would serve as extra motivation for the final.

He said: ‘Obviously they’re words that everyone can take however they want. I’m his opponent and it’s like disrespecting the Real Madrid badge, the players…

‘The only thing we must do is give our best, try to show why we’re in the final and let’s hope we can give another trophy to the fans and to Real Madrid.’
