The terrorist group ISIS has threatened to attack fans attending the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals this week.

The threat was spread through the Al Azaim Foundation, a media outlet used by ISIS to communicate.

ISIS released a poster with the message "Kill them all" and the names of the four stadiums where the games are being played this week - Emirates Stadium, Parc des Princes, Metropolitano Stadium and Santiago Bernabéu.

This comes after a recent ISIS attack in Moscow last March which resulted in many casualties.

The Spanish Government are aware of the threats, but there are no changes planned for the Champions League games in the Spanish capital this week, as Real Madrid host Manchester City, and Atlético Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund.

According to Marca, over 3,000 police officers will be on the streets in Madrid for the occasion, and intelligence has been asked to be extra vigilant.
