Rome, 02/05/2018. Following and documenting a group of Liverpool F.C. supporters chanting and cheering on throughout the streets of central Rome while waiting for the Champions League Semi-final (second leg) at the Stadio Olimpico versus A.S. Roma. The supporters were escorted by heavy presence of the Italian Police and Carabinieri, assisted by Merseyside Police's officers (British Police) and by the stewards and staff from Liverpool Football Club. Last week, during the first leg of the semi-final in Liverpool, an English fan was attacked by Italian supporters outside Anfield stadium. However, the day of the match in Rome passed without any serious incidents involving supporters and just one arrest - a Liverpool supporter - was made (on suspicion of common assault and a public order offence). The actual match was played in the evening and saw Liverpool losing 4-2 but due to the aggregate with the first match, 7-6, the "Reds" conquered the access to the Champions League final in Kiev against Real Madrid. A statement from the English club read: "Liverpool would like to thank all supporters who travelled to Rome for Wednesday evening's Champions League meeting with Roma at Stadio Olimpico for their exemplary conduct. Over 5,000 fans made the journey to the Italian capital for yesterday's semi-final second leg, behaving impeccably throughout, with no major incidents reported. LFC also acknowledges the significant resources deployed by Roma, UEFA, Merseyside police, Italian police and security services in Rome to ensure all fans enjoyed a safe visit."<br />
