“O The police officer I spoke to earlier today has considerably strengthened security resources,” said French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, referring to “a clear and public threat from the Islamic State.”

On Monday, the Islamic State threatened to carry out terrorist attacks during the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, taking place in London, Paris and Madrid.

The ‘jihadists’ published several images on propaganda channels, such as the Al-Azaim Foundation and Sarh al-Khilafah, one of them with the caption “Kill them all” [“Kill them all”, em inglês].

In this image, a man appears with his face covered, armed with an automatic weapon and the name of all the stadiums where ‘Champions’ games will be played this week, and the threat was confirmed by the SITE Intelligence Group, an organization specialized in tracking terrorist groups .

Spain, which is at anti-terrorist alert level 4 out of 5, hosts two of the duels of the highest continental football competition in the coming days: Real Madrid faces Manchester City today, at the Santiago Bernabéu, while Atlético de Madrid hosts Borussia Dortmund, on Wednesday.

Furthermore, Arsenal and Bayern Munich play today at the Emirates Stadium, in London, while FC Barcelona visits Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, at the Parc des Princes, in the French capital.
