Paris Saint-Germain supporters clash with Parisian police after reaching the first Champions League final | Soccer News


Paris Saint-Germain fans clashed with police in the streets of Paris on Tuesday night after their side reached the Champions League final for the first time.

Several thousand fans took to the streets of the city after the 3-0 victory over RB Leipzig in Lisbon.

Flares and fireworks were lit near the Champs Elysees, while large crowds gathered outside PSG’s Parc des Princes stadium.

Fans were seen dancing and singing together, though few were social distancing or wearing masks.

This is despite France experiencing a spike in coronavirus cases which has led the government to ask the public to increase their use of face masks.

In France, they must be worn in all indoor public spaces, and in Paris, coverings are also mandatory in certain outdoor public spaces.

The rise in cases in France has led the UK government to impose restrictions on travel to the country, which include anyone returning to the UK from France having to enter quarantine.

PSG will face Bayern Munich or national rivals Lyon in the Champions League final on Sunday after their comfortable win over Leipzig.

The tournament ends behind closed doors in Lisbon after being postponed in March due to the pandemic.
