Later on, worrying images emerged of tear gas and pepper spray being deployed by police.
And PSG fans have now reacted to the scenes with a message during PSG Women’s defeat to Lyon Women.
The banner read: “28/05/22 Police prefects, your incompetence is now shown to the world”.
On Monday, Liverpool legends Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler labelled the French government “liars” for refusing to accept any responsibility for the chaos.
After an emergency meeting in Paris, French interior minister Gerald Darmanin blamed an “industrial level” of fake tickets for the scenes of carnage outside the Stade de France.
Despite scores of eyewitness accounts by Liverpool fans and independent observers, Darmanin claimed that “30,000 to 40,000” Reds fans arrived at the gates of the stadium with “fraudulent” tickets.
Sports minister Amelie Oudea-Castera, who announced a full-scale probe will be held by European football bosses, said that police had retained 2,700 fake tickets.
A furious Carragher blasted: “The lies and spin from people in authority is a disgrace.
“Liars. Oudea-Castera, Uefa, police and authorities can’t get away with cover ups as easily as they used to thankfully.”
Darmanin added injury to the insult as he claimed that the French police who tear-gassed fans waiting for hours outside the games had been the heroes of the night.
He said: “I would like to thank all the police who, by their calmness, avoided a tragedy.
“The decisions taken by the police ensured that there were no deaths or serious injuries.
“That initial filtering was removed to avoid people being crushed on police cordons or on gates.”
That brought a stunned response from Fowler, who also took to Twitter to insist: “It was the calm and avoid of drama by the Liverpool fans that evaded another catastrophe.”
