Top night outside L'avenue Brasserie next to Port De Saint Ouen Metro. Loads of reds congregated and sung all evening. Surrounded by police (not CRS) but no trouble, although there had been reports that at the Kop Bar down the road that crowds had been so big they were spilling onto the pavement and apparently after an ambulance got stuck they closed the bar. There was loads of intrigued locals stood on the pedestrian island in the middle of the road opposite with their camera phones out who may not have not seen anything like us before!
Ya we have been talking in the half time, we need to do something, we need to change things and maybe if we score then it will be different and we scored and it was different.  - Rafael Benitez Ataturk Stadium Istanbul 26 May 2005

No covid checks on the early morning ferry at Dover for us. No great queue either, about an hour but we got in a bit too early so it was two and a half hours.

See World choice Sports at it again. How they have the nerve to operate still after last time. Thing is itís not like you have any time to go and book another route to get to Paris. Terrible company.

I'm outside the ground now. Just been chatting to some locals. He wanted a ticket bit baulked at the prices. Bit later they said their goodbyes and told me they were going to the 'other side' of the stadium where they could watch it. Not exactly sure what the 'other side' is, whether it's a bar or a screen or whatever.

Bit surprised there isn't a thread on the trouble outside the gates tonight but maybe it's too soon. My mate (on here) was locked outside Gate Y with many others. Sounds like they locked them before 8pm BST but no reason was given, and that was after a long trek to get that far. No stewards outside or anyone to help. The Police sprayed families with tear gas. Joel's brother was caught up in it, and his pregnant gf took refuge in a restaurant. Naturally on Twitter we are being blames for it but I would be interested in hearing the reason for locking them out . There were ticket checks before that so why tear gas fans WITH tickets. He got in just b4 HT,not sure if he went in anther gate or what as he ended up in another block but it just sounds awful.I hope everyone is ok

Absolute disgrace that was closing all the turnstiles not letting anyone in an hour before kick off. Couldnít even leave my sister to get into Z on her own with it all so had to scam both of us into X with my uefa mobile ticket Iíd paid well over the odds for. Got Cuts, bruises, battoned, tear gassed the works for it all as there was loads of Madrid and locals who couldnít get in there either. Thereís no way they all had tickets either, and it was them who was lobbing bottles at the police who responded with the tear gas but we will get the blame for everything.

We left the fan park at 5-30 and arrived at the Stade De Denis train station at about 6-20. Wife has photos timed at each step of the way stuck under the road, and then outside the ground. No stewards, no police until they turned up and pepper sprayed those standing quietly outside despite the gates being shut at Y. Police only turned up as about 50-100 locals were running amok in a threatening manner. We actually got in the ground at 10-10pm, absolute disgrace, and UEFA, French Police and the Stade De France staff need a long hard look at themselves. The match itself, we let them play around us too much in midfield, and Courtois had a worldie, it wasnít to be be, we go again.

MERPOL was deployed to this evenings match. Can only describe it as the worst European match I've ever worked or experienced. I thought the behaviour of the fans at the turnstiles was exemplary in shocking circumstances. You were not late 100%

On my way back home. Sadly, Iím close to calling it a day after what I saw today. Really distressing and dangerous scenes, children as young as 12 being pepper-sprayed, supporters treated appallingly when entering the ticket checks, kids separated from their parents. Managed to get into the ground at half time after being helped by the only Police officer in Paris who seemed to have any common sense. I really feared the worst on more than one occasion today. Very upsetting.

I arrived at the stadium at 7pm, I didn't get through gate Y until 8:15pm. It was an absolute mess. 'fans' without tickets jumping the fence, fans and locals trying to blag their way in or rush/push their way in. I thought you weren't able to get close to the turnstiles without a ticket. Perimeter check was just a pat down/bag check, no ticket check. The gates were opened and closed constantly, to control the flow of people through and prevent the turnstiles becoming overrun....which is fair enough (at one point someone told us there were 5 down injured the other side of the gate and we could see the medical assistance so those gates needed to be shut at that time), but too many people trying to push and argue their way through. Once their was some communication from the stewards, telling us how long to expect to wait before they opened again it was calmed...but as soon as people started skipping in the queue it all went to shit again. There was a lot of pushing and shoving between stewards and fans. Once they opened the gates again one stewards came out looking for a fight and had to be calmed by another steward. It was terrifying. You could see the madness at the gate and you're in the queue just thinking f**k, the only way I'm getting to see Liverpool play the champions league final is by getting through all that.

This is what I saw and experienced. A shambles of organisation. I was lucky to get in 45 mins before the original kick off time. So can't speak for the experience of those stuck as the game got underway. The seats around me were empty and never really filled up.

Then deleted it. At this point I don't think I want to go to another European final.

Was terrible.
