Atlético-Bayern declared 'high-risk'

The Spanish Anti-Violence Commission has declared Atlético Madrid’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich at the Vicente Calderón next Wednesday to be a high-risk fixture.

Deportivo's visit to the Vicente Calderón also flagged

The Commission has also flagged Atlético’s LaLiga match with Deportivo la Coruña this Sunday (16:15 CEST) as high-risk. Clashes between up to 180 rival fans before the corresponding fixture in 2014 led to the death of a Deportivo supporter and the arrest of over 20 individuals.

Authorities say that no other game requires the ‘high-risk’ status for the time being but that it will “act upon any new information or development.”
