The trickle of football fans arriving in Berlin will have turned into a flood later on Saturday ahead of the Champions League final.

The match between Barcelona and Juventus will attract supporters from beyond Spain and Italy.

The clubs have been given around 30,000 tickets each for the Olympic Stadium, which has a capacity of 70,500.

There has been plenty of rehearsing for the main event at the Brandenburg Gate with the annual UEFA Champions Festival.

Former stars such as Cafu who won the Champions League with Milan were there for some exhibition five-a-side, and to inspire youngsters to test their skills.

Many fans are expected to arrive in Berlin without tickets ahead of the main event. With plenty of bars and giant screens showing the final they will be happy to be part of the atmosphere.
