was spoilt and turned into real chaos.” “From party to fiasco,“ said France’s leading sports daily L’Equipe.Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said the families of some players struggled to get into the stadium.“When the goalkeeper is man of the match then something is going wrong for the other team,” added Klopp.In contrast to the scenes outside the stadium, Paris police noted that proceedings at two vast fans zones hosting thousands of supporters from both sides had taken place in a good atmosphere and without major incident.Some 40,000 Liverpool supporters without a match ticket had packed into their zone in eastern Paris to enjoy the atmosphere.I heard a few things that were not good, not nice," the German said.Despite the disappointment of defeat they left the area without any issue.The Reds also fell just short in the Premier League as Manchester City pipped Klopp’s men to the title by one point."If you look at the way Real Madrid celebrate those comebacks then I would say they are the favourites," Klopp said, referring to Real's fightbacks against Paris St Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City in the earlier rounds.

The Paris fire brigade -- which looks after all kinds of emergency situations -- said the night had largely been calm although it had treated some supporters for the effects of tear gas as well as excess alcohol consumption."
