1,500 Atlético Madrid fans set to travel to London
The game at the Emirates will feature the highest number of Atleti fans at any of the away European fixtures in the current 2017/18 campaign.
Thursday's game in North London will feature the highest number of Atleti supporters for any away match in the current season. Cholo Simeone's men will be accompanied by 1,500 Atleti fans who snapped up the allocation of away section tickets available to the Spanish club and priced at 45 euro.
After eliminating FC Copenhagen, Lokomotiv Moscow and Sporting de Portugal on their way to the semi-final tie, Atleti were drawn against the Premier League outfit in a tie that many wanted as the Lyon Europa League final.
No problems are anticipated between rival sets of supporters and the police presence in and around the sold out Emirates stadium will be the same for any high profile European tie.
