There was chaos outside the Stade de France before the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

The game was meant to kick off at 9pm local time.

However, this was pushed back twice due to problems outside the stadium.

There were numerous empty seats when the game was originally supposed to kick off.

Supporters were captured breaking into the ground to watch the final.

There was not enough security to stop the majority of them as they successfully made their way into the ground.

Watch some footage below…

There were also reports of tear gas and pepper spray being used on fans outside the stadium.

Videos have emerged appearing to show tear gas being used on supporters .

Gary Lineker was one of many that found it tough to get inside the ground.

He wrote on Twitter: “Finding it impossible to get in the ground. This appears to be very dangerous. Absolute carnage.”

He slammed UEFA in another tweet, writing: “I’m not sure it’s possible to have a more poorly organised event if you tried. Absolutely shambolic and dangerous. @UEFAcom”.

Marvin Matip [brother of Joel Matip] and his family, meanwhile, fled the stadium after being teargassed and took refuge in a restaurant, per Sky Sport journalist, Florian Plettenberg.

Plettenberg wrote: “Marvin Matip told me: The organisation around and in the stadium is unworthy of a CL final! Using tear gas in areas with children and uninvolved fans is dangerous!“

The game eventually kicked off at 9:36pm local time.
