Liverpool and Manchester United fans have been told there will be a visible police presence in their upcoming Champions League matches in Moscow, Russia.
Liverpool & Manchester United both have Champions League group matches in the Russian capital.
A combined total of 2,000 fans will make the 3,200-mile round trip from the north-west with Liverpool playing Spartak Moscow on Tuesday and United taking on CSKA Moscow a day later.
United have told fans “not to wear club colours” or “walk around Moscow alone”.
“Their Champions league opener wasn’t a dream start for many fans across the globe. They hope for the best outcome in their next match against a pretty resilient Russian top flight team in hostile environments at Moscow”
Liverpool say the Russian authorities are aware the two clubs are in Moscow at the same time so a visible police presence can be expected “wherever groups of Liverpool and Manchester United fans congregate, including at your accommodation”.
The Reds opened their campaign with a draw against Sevilla at Anfield on 13 September, whilst United defeated FC Basel at Old Trafford.
Russian hooligans attacked England fans in Marseille at the 2016 European Championship.
