  • You do not need a visa to enter Romania but your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay.
  • Take out some travel insurance and take a European Health Insurance Card - even if you’re only going for one night, if you get into difficulties it could save you a lot of money.
  • Try and get to the match early as it is likely you will be security checked more than once as you approach the stadium.
  • The gates for Liverpool supporters will be clearly marked and will open two hours before kick-off.
  • Liverpool fans will be held back at the end of the match until the home supporters have dispersed.
