All eyes on Moscow
The final takes place at the Luzhniki Stadium, where England lost a Euro 2008 qualifier to Russia

The Champions League final takes place at the Luzhniki Stadium, with the capacity set at 69,500.

As many as 50,000 fans are expected to travel to Moscow for the first all English final, with both clubs allocated 21,000 tickets.

Several of the players expected to contest the final have played at the venue as part of the England team that lost a crucial Euro 2008 qualifier to Russia last October.

The match was played on a plastic pitch, although real turf will be used for the final, and Wayne Rooney scored the opener and conceded a penalty as England lost 2-1.
