Champions League: Lisbon quiet day before final


Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have both arrived in Lisbon for the Champions League final – now it’s the turn of the supporters who continue to trickle into the Portuguese capital.

Although the city remains relatively quite on the eve of the final of Europe’s elite club competition, signs of an all Spanish final are very present around the fan zone in the centre.

Between 70 000 to 80 000 supporters are expected to descend upon the city for the showpiece match – some still without tickets.

Prices to stay the night in Lisbon have gone through the roof because of the influx of football tourists and due to these hiked prices many supporters are staying one and a half hour’s drive across the border in their homeland Spain.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
