The team bus of football club, Real Madrid was attacked by Liverpool fans.

The bus was attacked ahead of their crunch Champions League tie at Anfield on Wednesday. A window of the bus was smashed as the team pulled into Anfield Road with hundreds of supporters lined up to greet the two teams.

Los Blancos clung on to their 3-1 lead from the first leg, settling for a 0-0 draw in the second leg to set up a semi-final showdown with Chelsea.

Hundreds of fans lined Anfield Road, very few wearing masks or observing social distancing, to greet both teams as Liverpool hosted Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

When one of Rea Madrid’s buses parked up at the Kop end of Anfield after the team had arrived, it appeared that one pane of a double-glazed window had been smashed. Liverpool staff were seen cleaning up a pile of broken glass on the ground with Merseyside Police officers in attendance.

Merseyside Police subsequently have launched an investigation and stewards could be seen escorting away supporters from near the bus as the clean-up operation got underway.

The force has confirmed that no individuals were hurt as “a number of items” were thrown at the vehicle. As per Sky Sports, Chief Superintendent Zoe Thornton said that despite the advice to avoid attending the ground, approximately 400 people attended Anfield Road and as coaches approached, a number of items were thrown at the Real Madrid team bus.
