Liverpool issue security advice to fans ahead of Roma trip

Liverpool have issued security advice to their fans ahead of the Champions League semi-final second leg in Rome.

The first leg at Anfield was marred by violent scenes outside the ground which led to the hospitalisation of a Liverpool fan with serious injuries.

Club officials flew to Rome this week to discuss safety procedures with Roma , UEFA and the police ahead of the return leg.

Liverpool supporters have been advised not to walk to the Stadio Olimpico "under any circumstances."

The club have issued the guidance, along with a list of other safety and security recommendations, for fans travelling to Italy for Wednesday’s match.

Fearing the possibility of further trouble or attacks, Liverpool have published some advice "according to information provided by the Italian authorities as a result of ongoing collaboration with UEFA, AS Roma and Liverpool FC" for its travelling fans.

It is advised that supporters arrive early because of expected long queues to check tickets.

The club have also called on supporters to respect national monuments by not hanging banners and scarves on them and have told them to expect to be held back in the stadium after the match for longer than usual.

Liverpool conclude the statement on their official website by requesting that "supporters not in possession of a valid match ticket to not travel."
