What happened at Heysel? Juventus vs Liverpool European club ban explained


The Reds would not play in Europe for six years after the tragic events in Brussels, which left 39 dead and hundreds more injured
 
May 29, 1985 is remembered as one of the darkest days of modern football, as that is the date that the Heysel Stadium disaster occurred before Liverpool met Juventus in the final of the European Cup.
There were 39 deaths, including two children, caused by the incident, which took place in Brussels, Belgium, while some 600 people were injured in the event.
Remarkably, the game was played in any event, with Juventus going on to win 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Michel Platini.
