But Laura Marie Kerr's boyfriend Jay was actually planning watching the two cities do battle on the football pitch.
The 21-year-old was happy when Jay started mentioning Paris and Barcelona to her in text messages.
Laura, of Ballymena, Northern Ireland, thought the love of her life was about to sweep her away on a romantic break. Jay teased Laura through a series of seemingly sweet messages, talking about how she "loved Paris", and "remember we looked up flights to Barcelona"?. It’s so hilarious… The tweets after the cut, you will definitely understand. Lol
