The game itself will be played at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium but for those unfortunate enough to miss out on a ticket, there are plenty of places to watch the action. 

A fan park is being constructed with huge screens put up as a prime spectator spot. 

With just five days remaining before European football’s showpiece event, the organisers are keen to ensure everything runs smoothly.  

The Champions League branding is emblazoned on a huge star with details of the game, though supporters will no doubt be familiar with the specifics, such is the magnitude of the clash.
