Some 1,800 police officers will be deployed to the streets of the
Spanish capital for Real Madrid's Champions League match against
Bayern Munich on Tuesday night, city hall said.
The quarter-final second leg, which was declared "high risk" as
is common for high profile Champions League games, comes after
several European ties have been marred by violence.
"Nearly 1,800 officers will ensure that the match is held
normally and that security is reinforced in and outside the
stadium," Madrid city hall said in a statement.
"The police presence will also be reinforced in tourist areas of
the capital," it added.
There were clashes last week in the heart of Madrid between

Fans claimed police used tear gas and rubber bullets against them
as tensions boiled over in Spain and accused the authorities of
being over zealous.
About 1,000 police officers had been deployed in and around
Atletico Madrid Vicente Calderon stadium for Leicester's 1-0
first leg defeat.
