Published Add your comment

Juventus and Liverpool are marking the 27th anniversary of the Heysel Stadium disaster which claimed the lives of 39 supporters prior to the 1985 European Cup final.

The tragedy occurred when trouble broke out between supporters before kick-off at the stadium in Brussels.

Liverpool fans were widely blamed and UEFA banned English clubs from European competition for five years as a result.
