Watch: Real Madrid fans attempt to break into Wembley Stadium

On Saturday night, Real Madrid became champions of Europe for the 15th time when they defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Wembley Stadium.

While the match appeared to go by without any fan drama, a video has surfaced on social media which appears to show Real Madrid fans trying to break through security lines to enter the stadium without tickets.

In the build-up to the match, UEFA confirmed that they were launching their biggest-ever security operation for the final with over 20,000 stewards assigned to the match.

They were desperate to avoid scenes similar to those at the Euro 2020 final at Wembley when ticketless fans managed to break through security lines and disabled entrances to enter the 90-000-seater stadium.

The video shows a relatively large group of Real Madrid fans charging up the stairs directly outside the stadium where the first line of stewards were meant to perform ticket checks.

However, it appeared the attack took stewards by surprise as the majority of fans involved in the charge managed to break through the line and get towards the turnstiles.

The video finishes before the fans reach the turnstiles, so it's unclear whether any of them managed to get inside the stadium, but the clip does raise question marks about whether enough was done by security outside Wembley on Saturday night.

Real Madrid fans enter Wembley after the final whistle

While the previous video didn't show whether any ticketless Real Madrid fans made it inside Wembley on Saturday night, another video has surfaced which shows a group of Madrid fans entering through an opened disabled door after the final whistle.

Security may well have lapsed after the match had finished, but it will still go down as a security breach that fans were able to waltz into the stadium without a ticket at any point last night.

The group of Real Madrid fans took their opportunity and would have gotten inside Wembley in time to join the party as players and fans celebrated yet another Champions League triumph.
