SEVILLE (Reuters) - Spain's chief of police warned of the potential for 'serious problems' as the southern city of Seville braces for an expected invasion of 150,000 Rangers and Eintracht Frankfurt for Wednesday's Europa League final.

"It's too many people with too much alcohol, the majority without tickets for the game and lots of construction sites around the city, a recipe that could lead to serious problems," Juan Carlos Castro Estevez, Spain's General Commissioner for Citizen Security, said at a briefing with high-ranking National Police officers on Tuesday.
