UEFA has commissioned an independent report into events surrounding Saturday's Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid in Paris.
According to the European football governing body on Monday, ticket fraud and crowd trouble will be the focus of the investigation.
This comes after France's sports minister claimed 30 to 40-thousand Liverpool supporters attempted to enter the stadium with fake tickets, or none at all, leading authorities to use pepper spray on fans outside the stadium before match start.
The final was also affected, kicking off 37 minutes late.
Meanwhile, France's interior minister blamed crowd issues on 'fraud at an industrial level'.
