You can’t beat a Champions League away day. Two members of the BV social media team made the trip from Gibraltar to Seville to watch Liverpool’s UCL Group E clash against Sevilla.

Our friend and journalist Charles Brooke also attended the game, as well as covering the club’s pre-match & post-match media duties at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán. There were no signs of nerves from the Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp the night before the big game.

Here’s a summary of their trip from Gibraltar to Sevilla:

The Trip

The drive began along the south coast of Spain and then north towards Seville. 22 degrees and clear blue skies for the entire journey.

Charlie was lucky enough to get a great shot of the LFC team bus upon its arrival later on that morning.


After checking in to our hotel, we headed straight to the main square.

The Liverpool fans weren’t difficult to find, with the streets of Seville painted Liverpool Red.

After spending a couple of hours with all the travelling LFC fans, the next stop was the nearest pizza restaurant.

With 5000 travelling Liverpool fans and only 2500 away seats allocated, the Sevilla bars quickly started to flood with Reds supporters.

The Match

After some drinks, we followed the crowd on the walk across Seville to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan. It wasn’t difficult to spot, a beautiful sight lit up on the horizon as we approached with fans milling about.

We made our way in and down to our seats. We were sat at ground level towards the Liverpool goal in the first half. This meant that 6 out of the 6 goals in the match were all scored at the opposite side of the stadium. Nonetheless you couldn’t ask for a more exciting spectacle with both sets of fans in fine voice throughout the night.

The atmosphere was electric before the game even got underway.

Half-Time – Sevilla 0 – 3 Liverpool

Hard to believe.

The social media team may have spoken too soon with this half-time post. Liverpool winning and Spurs losing, a complete turn around after 90 mins (or 94 mins in the Liverpool match)

Credit given where credit is due, the Sevilla fans kept going all night and it’s not hard to see why they have such a phenomenal home record with such an incredible 12th man.

The Result

Full time in Seville. One of the most incredible comebacks in UCL history and a night to remember.

Sevilla have one of the best home records in Europe, not losing a match at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan since Juventus over a year ago. Many Liverpool fans would’ve gladly taken a draw pre match and most certainly not a result to criticise but fans will always be disappointed when you lose a 3 goal lead.
