    A group of Spartak fans, whose team snatched a 1-1 draw in the Championship League match in Moscow, has arranged a hospitality event for supporters of the British club.

    Ahead of the game on Tuesday, Spartak Football Academy students presented Liverpool fans with commemorative red T-shirts decorated with a timeline of the two clubs' matches. 

    The organizers of the match, for their part, tried to do their best to maintain the atmosphere of hospitality at the stadium.

    At the time, fans in the Russian city of Rostov gave several hundred visiting Manchester United fans warm blankets before a Europa League game, so they could feel comfortable at the stadium while they watched.
