The road to Atletico Madrid involved a 23 hour journey that took them to London's Euston St by train and then onto St Pancras to board the Eurostar to Paris.
After an overnight stay in the French capital, the Reds boarded a train to Bordeaux. Then onto the airport for the final descent into Madrid's Barajas airport. Train, plane, and automobiles. 60 years ago, a Liverpool squad embarked on a 5000 mile trip to the USA and were hailed as 'great ambassadors for English football'.
The airports are now open and by tomorrow Liverpool fans should get to Madrid to see their team take on the Colchoneros.
