Liverpool F.C.'s 40 Greatest European Nights

Over the course of 40 years beginning with a low key visit to a modest stadium in Reykjavik to one glorious night in Istanbul, Liverpool have featured in some of the most renowned games ever witnessed in UEFA competitions.

Even years on many are still talked about across Europe and the rest of the world.  Coming back from a 3-0 deficit at half-time against AC Milan was just one of those remarkable nights.

However, there have been many more over the decades and not all involving the lifting of club football's ultimate prize.

As a Kop season ticket holder for many years, author Darren Phillips has soaked up the unique atmosphere and witnessed many of these special occasions first hand.  He has selected 40 of the very best as a commemoration of The Reds anniversary as well as the remarkable achievement of being crowned Champions of Europe five times.
