The clubs spokesperson also expressed that policing action could be taken given the disrespectful acts from the individuals involved - "It is totally unacceptable and shameful behaviour of a few individuals. We will work together with Merseyside Police to establish the facts and identify those responsible."

According to the Athletic, UEFA will be waiting to receive official reports before any communication is made on the matter. 

Liverpool will be hoping to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg as they look to inspire another memorable comeback. No doubt the tie between Liverpool and Madrid will be a heated battle but also a fantastic game between two great sides that many fans hope is not overshadowed by the unnecessary events beforehand.
