Footage showed Liverpool fans being tear-gassed by police as the game was delayed by 36 minutes.
A statement from Uefa read: “The comprehensive review will examine decision making, responsibility and behaviours of all entities involved in the final.
“The report will be independently compiled and Dr. Tiago Brandão Rodrigues from Portugal will lead the production of this review.
“Evidence will be gathered from all relevant parties and the findings of the independent report will be made public once completed and upon receipt of the findings, Uefa will evaluate the next steps.”
It comes after Liverpool legends Jamie Carragher and Robbie Fowler blasted the French government as “liars” who are STILL refusing to accept any responsibility for the Champions League Final chaos.
After an emergency meeting in Paris, French interior minister Gerald Darmanin blamed an “industrial level” of fake tickets for the scenes of carnage outside the Stade de France.
Despite scores of eyewitness accounts by Liverpool fans and independent observers, Darmanin claimed that “30,000 to 40,000” Reds fans arrived at the gates of the stadium with “fraudulent” tickets.
Sports minister Amelie Oudea-Castera, who announced a full-scale probe will be held by European football bosses, said that police had retained 2,700 fake tickets.
But the allegations brought a tidal wave of outrage from Liverpool fans and former players, led by Carragher and Fowler.
A furious Carragher blasted: “Gerald Darmanin is the fraud. He suggested there had been ‘a massive, industrial and organised fraud of counterfeit tickets’.
“The lies and spin from people in authority is a disgrace.
“Liars. Oudea-Castera, Uefa, police and authorities can’t get away with cover ups as easily as they used to thankfully.”
Darmanin added injury to the insult as he claimed that the French police who tear-gassed fans waiting for hours outside the games had been the heroes of the night.
He said: “I would like to thank all the police who, by their calmness, avoided a tragedy.
“The decisions taken by the police ensured that there were no deaths or serious injuries.
“That initial filtering was removed to avoid people being crushed on police cordons or on gates.”
That brought a stunned response from Fowler, who also took to Twitter to insist: “It was the calm and avoid of drama by the Liverpool fans that evaded another catastrophe.”
