PSG fans celebrate UCL final qualification with fireworks

Thousands of Paris Saint-Germain fans flocked to the Champs Elysees on Tuesday night to celebrate their historic victory over RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

Supporters set off flares and fireworks to mark their team’s achievement in reaching the European Cup final for the first time after a 3-0 victory in Portugal.

Revellers linked arms and chanted, with few in the crowd wearing face masks despite a recent uptick in Covid-19 infections in France.

Large crowds also gathered outside the French champions’ Parc des Princes stadium, while Parisians lined up in and outside bars to watch the game.
