The club have made the authorities in Croatia aware of "persistent rumours that 100 individuals recognised as dangerous will travel independently to Zagreb for this match, which has been classified as high risk by UEFA''.

Indeed, PSG have decided not to put on official trips for fans or even sell any tickets for the Group A match.

A statement on the club's official website said: "Paris St Germain have alerted the Croatian authorities about the threat. The club wants everything to be done to avoid incidents during the game.''

The club asked those fans tempted to travel not to do so.
