50,000 Liverpool Fans Sing You'll Never Walk Alone
Liverpool fans have a great reputation for their special Champions League nights at Anfield and they managed to transport that atmosphere pretty well to the streets of Madrid ahead of the final against Spurs.
It might have been one of the all time best Champions League comebacks when Liverpool managed to overturn a 3-0 deficit against Barcelona in the semi final second leg in England but there was also something almost inevitable about it.
That's because Liverpool have a reputation for comebacks and incredible nights at Anfield in the Champions League and that's at least partially to do with their impressive crowd.
So the Champions League final gives them something different to contend with because they've got to be as good at Anfield without the crowd being quite so vociferous.
This week Liverpool and Spurs fans have been travelling to Madrid, via many different routes, in order to make it to the Spanish capital for the Champions League final.
Liverpool fans clearly managed to find each other and their voices as 50,000 of them banded together to sing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' in brilliant scenes:

And it was Liverpool fans who were in extremely early voice once the final got underway. It took them less than 30 seconds to launch their first attack on Hugo Lloris' goal and it instantly paid dividends.
Sadio Mane went to cross the ball from the edge of the box and it struck Moussa Sissoko on the arm and the referee awarded a penalty, which many thought was harsh.
Mo Salah, who'd had a disappointing final last season when he went off injured after the half hour mark, converted the spot kick.

Despite the quick start to life in the final things slowed down for both teams and long range shots were the main threat, although Lloris did make one decent save.
Will the Liverpool fans be singing in unison once again at full time or can Spurs start the comeback?
