RIOT police had to seperate Liverpool and Sevilla fans minutes before the Europa League cup final yesterday.

Fights broke out behind the Liverpool goal at St Jakob-Park, Switzerland, while stewards stepped in to try and break up the trouble.

Moments later, riot police arrived on the scene, donning protective helmets and wielding batons.

They had to line themselves on the stairwell to separate the rival fans.

The trouble is said to have started after Sevilla fans booed the Liverpool anthem ´You´ll never walk alone.´

Liverpool would later open the scoring of the match with a magnificent left footed strike from Daniel Sturridge.

But hope began to fade in the second half when just 17 seconds in, Kevin Gameiro turned in Mariano Ferreira´s cross to equalise.

Sevilla´s Coke dealed a double blow with his 64th minute finish, followed by a third at close range, which was initially disallowed but ended up being given.

Sevilla has won the Europe League three years in a row.
