Italian police “guarantee the safety of Liverpool supporters” as long as they “respect the rules” in Rome tomorrow night.

Liverpool supporter Sean Cox remains in critical condition after an alleged assault by two Roma fans ahead of the Champions League semi-final first leg.

Tensions are therefore high ahead of the second leg, with the local police set to take a hard line against both sets of supporters.

“We are used to managing these events,” public order commissioner Giorgio Luciani told the BBC.

“For the Rome Marathon we organised a police service of more than 1,000 people. For the derby between Roma and Lazio it was the same.

“We can guarantee the safety of Liverpool supporters if they respect the rules and make the day as normal as they can.

“We don’t ask for anything special, just that they respect the rules.

“It’s a tough challenge but what is important is for us to enjoy and lead the city for the citizens, supporters, for everyone. We want it to be an important sporting day – nothing else.”

People without tickets were also warned not to attempt to get into the stadium.

“They need a ticket and passport or ID card, this is the only way to gain entrance for the match. Without a ticket, it is not forbidden to watch the match inside a pub, bar or restaurant but not inside the stadium.”
