FFS. It's not that difficult to do


Uefa today refused to rule out the possibility of Liverpool having to play a Champions League tie on 15 April — the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.


The Merseyside club asked Uefa earlier this week if the second leg of their quarter-final — should they progress past Real Madrid in the clubs' last-16 tie — could be brought forward from its currently scheduled date by 24 hours.


Liverpool traditionally hold a memorial service, which is attended by players and staff, at Anfield on the 15th to commemorate the 96 supporters who died as a result of the events at Hillsborough during the 1989 FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.


"We have received a request [from Liverpool] and we will try our best to accommodate it," a Uefa spokesperson said. "But we cannot guarantee at this stage that we will be able to."
