Liverpool fans have headed to Rome in their droves for tonight’s Champions League semi-final second leg—taking a glorious collection of banners with them.
The Reds have a 5-2 lead from the first leg at Anfield, but after Roma’s own famous comeback against Barcelona in the last round, Jurgen Klopp‘s men still need the backing of their fans to complete the job.
That will certainly be the case if the pre-game sights around the city and en-route to Italy are anything to go by.
As ever on a European journey, Kopites from near and far have decked out the host city with flags and banners which will adorn the Stadio Olimpico this evening.
There are old classics, new creations and plenty of witty additions on show, as seen below.
