ISIS terrorists have menacingly threatened to target this week’s Champions League quarter-final matches with a bloodcurdling “kill them all” warning in a graphic poster directed at spectators. The chilling poster displayed the names and pictures of all four stadiums where the first-leg fixtures are taking place – including the 81,000-seat Santiago Bernabeu, where Manchester City face Real Madrid, and north London’s Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal host Bayern Munich.

The blood-splattered poster released by the Al Azaim Foundation, the media outlet Islamic State uses to spread its hateful messages, shows an ISIS fighter in front of the stadiums alongside the words: “Kill them all.”

Reports in Spain claim the country’s government has activated its security procedures for the two Champions League fixtures taking place in its capital on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with Atletico Madrid also taking on Borussia Dortmund at the Wanda Metropolitano. More than 8,000 away fans are expected for the games in Madrid, with a 3,000-strong security team reportedly on patrol. A week before the poster emerged, ISIS-affiliated media outlet Sarh al-Khilafah threatened an attack on the Allianz Arena during Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga clash against Borussia Dortmund.
