PARIS, FRANCE (JULY 10, 2018) (REUTERS) – Paris is in full preparation as fans await the World Cup 2018 semi-final match between France and neighbouring Belgium on Tuesday (July 10).

Belgian bars in the French capital are expecting a horde of supporters of the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, a fan zone featuring a 62-square-metre screen that will stream the match has been installed in front of Paris’s city hall, and 20,000 fans, mostly Les Bleus supporters, are expected to fill the square.

About 1,200 police officers will be mobilised by the city on Tuesday night. Subway stations around the city hall will close during the game.

The France-Belgium duel will start at 8 p.m. local time (6 p.m. GMT).
