It’s the match that every Liverpool and United fans wants to attend.
Well, that’s what you would assume but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

That's because Manchester United are still desperately trying to sell tickets for Thursday’s Europa League second-leg at Old Trafford.

It appears that some Red Devils are ruling out a miraculous comeback with their side trailing 2-0 from the first-leg.
Goals from Daniel Sturridge and Roberto Firmino meant that Jurgen Klopp’s side have one foot in the quarter-finals.
But Liverpool hardly had to be at their best to beat an insipid United team.
Louis van Gaal’s side only managed one shot on target and were blasted by club legends Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand after the match.
"It was shambolic,” Scholes said onBT Sport.
"You look at the pitch tonight, what are they trying to do? I've got absolutely no idea.
"Where is this club going at the minute? I'm not too sure, they're going the wrong way, there's no doubt about that,” he added.
While Rio Ferdinand reeled off a list of former players that are better than the current squad.
"There's a list of players I've written down here; Di Maria, Nani, Evra, Welbeck, Chicharito, Evans, Fletcher, Raphael, Kagawa, I could go on.
"Are they worse than the players that were out there? They're better than that team out there, them players,” he said.
So maybe it’s no surprise to see United splash out £50 on a match ticket after their horror show last week.
And given United’s form at home this season, you can’t blame some fans for being reluctant to pay a ticket.
Van Gaal’s side have played out numerous low-scoring matches at the Theatre of Dreams, with the Dutch boss often employing negative tactics.
Liverpool only need to score once which would leave United needing four goals to stand any chance to progress.
Unsurprisingly, the away side have completely sold out their 3,117 allocation as they hope to watch their side beat their arch-rivals in their own backyard.
According to The Sun, United claimed back in 2013 that they had 659 million fans. It’s a shame they can’t find 76,000 that want to watch their side in a huge European match.
