Copenhagen give FREE beer to travelling Sevilla fans in CL stalemate

At least they had something to cheer about! FC Copenhagen show their class by providing FREE beer to travelling Sevilla fans… only for the teams to serve up uneventful 0-0 draw

  • Copenhagen gave free beer to the travelling Sevilla supporters on Wednesday
  • The Danish club posted a video of stewards delivering a number of pints to fans
  • Classy gesture was met with universal acclaim from the away fans in the stadium
  • However, that was likely the night’s highlight as the tie ended in a drab 0-0 draw

FC Copenhagen won over the hearts of many football fans on Wednesday when they kindly gave out free beers to the Sevilla fans who made the trip to Denmark for their side’s Champions League outing.

In a classy gesture to thank the Spanish fans for making the 3,000 mile-round trip in midweek, the Danish club gave the small group of Sevilla fans a drink each to watch the game with.

Shortly after the Champions League Group G clash had kick-off, Copenhagen took to Twitter to post the moment the beer was delivered to the fans by the stewards, leaving the travelling support to salute Copenhagen.

And while the gesture will likely be remembered for a long while by the travelling support, the action on the pitch certainly won’t. 

Copenhagen and Sevilla both played out a dull goalless draw at the Parken Stadium, which saw both teams remain winless in the European competition.

Both teams are in the bottom half of Group G with a point each. Manchester City leads the group with six points after a 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund, which has three points.

Sevilla had most of the attempts on goal against Copenhagen but failed to capitalize on its chances.

‘We had many chances, especially in the first half, and in the Champions League, in football generally, it’s difficult if you lack that finishing touch,’ Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui said. 

‘On the positive side, we’ve got our first clean sheet of the season. It’s a tough stadium with a powerful atmosphere.’

Sevilla lost to City 4-0 at home, while Copenhagen fell 3-0 at Dortmund, in the group openers.

While the fans will remember the gesture, they’ll probably want to forget the action on the pitch after the Champions League Group G game ended in a drab goalless draw on Wednesday

‘The team did a good job and now we have a double-header against Dortmund,’ Lopetegui said. 

‘There are 12 points to play for. The Dortmund games then the return (match against) Copenhagen and the other game against City. Evidently the double-header against Dortmund is going to be very important.’

Copenhagen, making its first group-stage appearance since the 2016-17 season, is tough to score against at home. It has not conceded in its last four home games in the competition’s group stage.
