Numerous Liverpool fans were denied entry to the Stade de France before the start of the game between Real Madrid and Liverpool FC. They had to wait for hours, many did not come to the stadium despite regular tickets. The police used tear gas and pepper spray. The start of the game was delayed by 36 minutes. Many fans also reported being attacked and robbed outside the stadium after the game.

French President Emmanuel Macron expressed sympathy for the people "who were pushed and who could not reach their paid seats".

He wishes "that they will be compensated as soon as possible". France's Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin had previously defended the French authorities and blamed the chaos primarily on the English fans.
