In pictures: Liverpool and Tottenham fans ahead of the Champions League final

Liverpool and Tottenham will contest the Champions League final at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Saturday evening.

Many fans have struggled to secure direct flights to the Spanish capital and had to go via other airports or even different means of transport.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at the supporters who have managed to travel for the second instalment of two all-English European finals this year.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
