To many the Europa League is a bit of a distraction, but try telling that to fans of the clubs still involved. If you ever doubted what the competition emans, check out these tifos from the return legs of the last 16 on Thursday night.
The Porto faithful urged their heroes to ‘Never Kick Up’ as they tried to turn around a first leg deficit against Borussia Dortmund. Sadly it didn’t work, as El Dragões lost on the night too.
Obviously that result was well received with the away fans and the BvB fans lit up their end in celebration
There is nothing as magical as a European night at Anfield and The Kop was in full voice for their traditional rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone
After losing at home the previous week the Marseille fans travelled to Bilbao maybe more in hope than expectation. But that didn’t spot them taking the banenrs and the flares as they tried to encourage their team to a win. It didn’t work as they drew 1-1, but certainly made for a great atmosphere in San Mames.
Lastly, the Basel fans unveiled this full end tifo for their encounter vs St Etienne. Down from the first leg, the Swiss team were able to use the St. Jakob-Park fans and progressed on the away goals with a last minute goal. Scenes!
