During the day, Parisian supporters, but especially Lyon supporters, animated the streets of downtown Lille in a good-natured atmosphere, noted an AFP journalist.

An impressive police force is deployed in the city. The Northern prefecture had put in place several administrative measures as part of this meeting classified as very high risk.

Supporters of OL and PSG are therefore prohibited from traveling “outside the spaces reserved for them” near the stadium until 4 a.m. Sunday.

The prefecture had also asked the supporters of each team to each use a different metro line, with a different metro stop, in order to get to the stadium and to avoid the risk of overflows as much as possible.

Another ban: consumption of alcohol on public roads and terraces in Lezennes, Lille and Villeneuve d’Ascq “in a glass or metal container” until 4 a.m. Sunday.

The prefect of the Hauts-de-France region and the Nord department, Bertrand Gaume, called on Friday in a press release to “the collective and individual responsibility of supporters, as well as all those attending the match, so that everyone can enjoy this festive and friendly event in complete safety”.
