Supporters have traveled in good numbers for the all-English final against Liverpool in Madrid, but anticipation seems to be overshadowed by ugly scenes on Friday night.

The police are seen entering the local restaurant where some supporters were on Friday night
One supporter carried an eight-year-old child on his shoulders while the fight was taking place, according to the Daily Telegraph correspondent Tom Morgan.
The incident probably happened in the café and the Tapas restaurant, near the Puerta del Sol.
Morgan spoke to a fan who was in the room at the time of the police visit, where the fan explained how the events unfolded
& # 39; We had a laugh and a joke – it was all Tottenham and just fun, & # 39; a supporter said.
Fans seem to have been brought in outside the restaurant near Puerta del Sol
& # 39; Then suddenly two of them (police) came to us and suddenly it was bang, bang, they all came in vapors. They broke tables with their batons. They are afraid of order. & # 39;
Morgan goes on to say that the police, according to the restaurant, responded to complaints that Tottenham fans were aggressive towards their Liverpool counterparts, but that the police & # 39; overweight & # 39; acted when they arrived.
Harry Wade, who claims to have been in the restaurant during the police visit, gave his account of the events.
He wrote on Twitter: & # 39; F *** the Spanish police. Restaurant full of Spurs, riot police come flying in & start touching us & tables, we caused no problems at all. @spain @madrid #UCL #ChampionsLeague sacks or s ***. & # 39;
The video seems to have picked up the aftermath of events at the restaurant, as supporters are led outside by the police, who can be seen with helmets and batons.
Fans, including the person filming the video, are sent away from the room where a supporter seems to hit the back of the legs with a stick.
One supporter who claimed to be in the room was furious about how the events unfolded
Liverpool fans at Plaza Sol are said to have been held in the square by a police blockade
At about 650 meters, the Liverpool Echo reported that Reds fans were trapped in a police blockade around Plaza Sol in Madrid.
Fans descended on the square for an event where the DJ & Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike finished the pre-Champions League final.
The report says supporters were told that they could not leave the blockade until midnight due to the size of the crowds.
