It looks like the Augsburg fans are certainly enjoying themselves today.

Liverpool have just won the second leg tie against the German outfit by 1-0 on aggregate, thanks to a James Milner penalty in the first half at Anfield.

In truth, the Europa League last-32 clash hasn't been the most exciting in the history of the beautiful game, but luckily some Augsburg fans found a way to keep themselves entertained.

Before the game at Anfield, a group congregated outside a nearby tavern and fuelled by a shandy or two, they proceeded to have the time of their lives.

Chanting, barging, and flinging booze around, the group entertained nearby revellers with their antics before the big(ish) game. By jingo, they are certainly having a good time.

The Liverpool Echo reported that the group of fans bought the city centre to a 'standstill'. Liverpudlian Ian Croll first tweeted the clip, along with the message: "Absolute scenes from the Augsburg fans here in the city centre."

According to the Echo, 3,000 fans made their way over to England for tonight's game.

With their place in the last-16 assured, Liverpool can now turn their attention back to the Premier League.

Gunning for glory

Jurgen Klopp's side have only a slim chance of breaking in to the top four, with nine points separating them from Manchester City, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.

Despite their hopes of returning to Europe's top club competition, the Reds can still end their campaign on a high when they take on Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final.

They take on Manchester City at Wembley on February 28th, before returning to Premier League action against Manuel Pellegrini's side three days later.

Can Liverpool win the Europa League and Capital One Cup this season?
