UEFA have urged Manchester United and Chelsea fans not to travel to Moscow for the Champions League final unless they have a valid match ticket.

Following talks between European football´s governing body and the Russian government, supporters possessing a ticket will be able to use it as a visa entry for a 72-hour period.

Spokesman William Gaillard told BBC Sport: "Don´t go there. Spare yourself the aggravation of being rejected at the stadium. I would tell the fans ´be reasonable, stay put´ because otherwise you are going to have to pay for a full visa."
