Liverpool and Juventus football clubs

Supporters waving flags, scarves and one large banner

On 29 May 1985 crowd disturbances involving Liverpool fans at the Heysel Stadium before the European Cup Final against Juventus led to a wall collapse which contributed to the deaths of 39 Italian fans.

From then on Liverpool worked to forge links with the club. The banner in this photograph with the colours of both clubs, which was also carried on the Kop, sums up the bond of respect between the teams.
