Liverpool are arranging their first game against Juventus since the 1985 Heysel Stadium disaster. More than 10 years after 39 fans died as a result of rioting before the European Cup final, the two clubs are negotiating to meet at Boston's 60,000-capacity Foxboro Stadium on 11 August.

"We've been trying to organise this game for some time and it looks as if it is coming to fruition," the Liverpool manager, Roy Evans, said. "We have had a great relationship with them over a number of years - certainly since Heysel and with the transfer to and from of Ian Rush."
