The responsible police chief Juan Carlos Castro had warned of "serious problems" shortly before these first riots on Tuesday.

Around 150,000 fans are expected in Seville for the final on Wednesday evening (9 p.m. / RTL), 100,000 from Scotland and 50,000 from Germany.

"This is outrageous," Castro said.

"That's too many people with too much alcohol, most without a ticket to the game.

And there are many construction sites in the city.

All of this can lead to serious problems.” 5,500 security guards will be deployed for the final.

Castro spoke of the "most difficult game in recent years" in the Andalusian metropolis.

Each club received a contingent of 10,000 tickets for the final.

The Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán only offers space for about 44,000 spectators.

Most of the fans who have traveled from Germany and Scotland will therefore follow the final in front of large screens in fan zones and in the Cartuja Stadium or in pubs.
