    Being worried of 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, but they are asked not to walk to the stadium "under any circumstances".

    Supporters have also be called on to respect national monuments by not hanging banners and scarves on them.

    Drinking alcohol on the streets will be prohibited and have been told to expect to be held back in the stadium after the match for longer than usual.
