BT Sport to air a 'Liverpool x European Nights' marathon tonight

Television will play a crucial role in making this year’s Easter weekend one to remember.

With most of the world in lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, sports fans will be relying on showings of nostalgia to get by.

Yesterday, Sky Sports treated us to a whole host of Premier League classic matches and a full replay of Ben Stokes’ memorable 135* against Australia at Headingley.

But today it’s BT Sport who are coming up clutch for sporting fans. Well, Liverpool fans anyway…

That’s because the broadcaster will be airing a ‘Liverpool x European Nights’ marathon this evening and it sounds fantastic.

The show kicks off with Liverpool versus Borussia Dortmund, a Europa League game which delivered Jurgen Klopp’s first great moment on Merseyside.

Dejan Lovren’s winner really was something special.

Then we move on to THAT game against Barcelona. ‘Corner taken quickly’ will no doubt be trending on Twitter once again.

The penultimate showing will be Liverpool’s memorable comeback in the 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan, with Rafa Benitez’s side coming back to win from 3-0 down.

Finally, Reds fans can bask in the glory of last summer by rewatching Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham in Madrid to seal their sixth European Cup.

Divock Origi, get ready for your supporters to eulogise about your achievements once again!

Liverpool and have had so many memorable European nights down the years that there are actually some major games missing from what is still a great lineup from BT Sport.

The semi-final victory over Chelsea in 2005, destroying Manchester City at Anfield and more, the show could quite easily have been about 10 games long.

But Liverpool fans will have to wait a while for their next classic European night after being eliminated from the Champions League by Atletico Madrid shortly before football across the continent was postponed indefinitely.
