PARIS: 5,000 Paris Saint-Germain supporters who gathered at the Parc des Princes to support their team in the Champions League final were disappointed to lose to Bayern Munich.
Supporters lit flares and cheered together as they watched PSG lose 1-0 to Bayern Munich on a giant screen near the stadium in the French capital.
The social distance to curb the spread of COVID-19 was completely ignored inside and outside the area as supporters hoped to celebrate their inaugural success in the European elite tournament but were not reached.
“We are disappointed but we are not suffering,” PSG supporter Anne Vaneson told AFP.
“In the first half we played at the same level but we had to pay a high price due to the decline in performance in the first 20 minutes of the second half.”
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo had previously hoped there would be a “mature response” if PSG beat Bayern, after supporters clashed with police after a 3-0 win over RB Leipzig in the semi-finals.
However, there was a fight between the supporters and the police throughout the match with the fans armed with firecrackers being targeted by tear gas by the police.
Trash cans and a vehicle were set on fire by angry supporters after the defeat of their favorite team while police vans were thrown bottles.
