It has been 16 years since Roma last played at Anfield – this is the story of that emotional Champions League night
When Liverpool and Roma emerge from the Anfield tunnel on Tuesday evening, they will be met by a wall of noise.
The famous old stadium comes alive for Champions League nights. Liverpool’s history revolves around European games, the stories passed down from generation to generation. “Bring on yer Internazionale,” sing the Kop. They could sing about Saint-Etienne or Chelsea, Olympiacos or Juventus, Dortmund or Auxerre if they wished.
Roma, too, know what it’s like to walk into Anfield at its loudest. It has been 16 years since the Italians visited L4, but they won’t have forgotten it, that’s for sure.
