The first leg of UEFA Champions League Round of 16 between Liverpool and Bayern Munich was a forgettable 0-0 draw that put off all the excitement for next month.
However, fans of each Liverpool and Bayern’s side cast rivalry aside to join in protesting against the rising of ticket prices for that European clash.
First, Bayern’s supporters unfolded a banner while the second half was underway that showed this message: “Away ticket LFC 48£ FCB 55€. Th€ gr€€d knows no £imits! Twenty is plenty.” Automatically, Liverpool fans clapped and joined German fans’ gesture.
The «Twenty is plenty» refers to the campaign launched in England by the Football Supporters’ Federation for clubs to cap ticket prices for visiting supporters at £20.
Earlier this month, the English Premier League announced that its clubs would continue to cap away tickets at £30 for another three seasons after introducing the plan for the start of the 2016-2017 campaign.
This is not the first time Bayern’s fans have protested against the cost of ticket prices. Liverpool supporters also have been vociferous in their criticism of ticket prices.
Around 10,000 walked out in the 77th minute of the Premier League game with Sunderland in February 2016 in response to rising season ticket prices.
Thousands of Liverpool fans walked out of Anfield to protest high ticket prices, and it worked!https://t.co/vssuUGDMcW

The applause from the Liverpool supporters was as raucous as it got at Anfield with neither team managing to find a breakthrough.
