Copenhagen fans make classy gesture to travelling Sevilla supporters by handing out free beer before Champions League clash

    FC Copenhagen fans made a brilliant gesture to the travelling Sevilla supporters on Wednesday night by handing out free beer.

    Such gestures are a rare sight in football, with opposing sets of fans more likely to engage in verbal sparring and, in some cases, physical confrontation.

    See Nice’s clash with Cologne last Thursday, that match was delayed by more than an hour after the supporters were engaged in running battles inside the stadium.

    However, Copenhagen showed their class with the brilliant gesture to hand out beer to fans of the Spanish club who had made the 3,000 mile round trip to Denmark.

    The Sevilla supporters gladly took up their offer and saluted the home fans for their generosity.

    The Danish club posted a video on Twitter of the beers being handed out to the visitors.

    The classy moment will certainly be remembered, however the match itself will quickly be forgotten.

    Copenhagen and Sevilla played out a drab 0-0 draw, for their first Champions League points of the season.

    They are in Group G alongside Man City and Borussia Dortmund and will have a tough time qualifying for the knockout stages.

    Erling Haaland scored twice against Sevilla in their opening 4-0 defeat to City, and the Spanish club will be sure to have the beers ready for when Copenhagen make the return trip to drown their sorrows when the Norwegian striker inevitably continues his goalscoring form.
