    Over 100,000 fans have reportedly arrived in Madrid to enjoy the championship clash between the Liverpool and Tottenham football teams, that is taking place on Saturday at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

    Spanish law enforcement forces have detained a group of fraudsters posing as stewards over their attempt to steal tickets for the UEFA Champions League Final, the Union of European Football Associations said in a statement, as cited by the BBC.

    The plotters attempted to snatch the tickets by pretending to run technical ticket checks. The police confiscated their fake uniforms and devices as well as their fake accreditation.
