Real Madrid defeated Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final, but the real story happened before the match outside the stadium. Authorities delayed the match for 4 hours for what was reported to be “late arriving fans”; reports from eyewitnesses, victims, media and video clips all appear to show French police harassing and mistreating thousands of Liverpool fans waiting to enter the stadium. Liverpool FC have called on UEFA to open an investigation into “these unacceptable issues”.
