Sky Sports reported that both Liverpool and Bayern Munich supporters where praised by Merseyside Police. The police exalted the two sets of supporters for showing few signs of trouble before, during and after the match.
A sporting event of Champions League’s caliber usually results in some kind of disturbances. Yesterday was no different — but a mere three arrests were made. Despite the common troubles surround disorderly behavior, ticket touting and suspicion of assault, Merseyside Police Superintendent Dave Charnock praised the behavior of both groups of supporters:
Although we did see a small number of arrests yesterday, the overwhelming majority of Liverpool and Bayern Munich fans who both went to the game and watched it at various locations across the city were extremely well behaved.
Football hooliganism, especially involving English and German fans, is unfortunately not uncommon. Hence, news that defies expectations is always a pleasant read.
Bayern and Liverpool teams treated both home and away fans and neutrals to a tense and enjoyable goalless draw.
Merseyside Police is thanking the vast majority of fans for their behaviour at the Liverpool v Bayern Munich match last night, Tuesday, 19 February. Three arrests were made for various offences. See more here— Merseyside Police (@MerseyPolice) February 20, 2019
