Liverpool fans travel to Toulouse knowing victory will see their side qualify for the UEFA Europa League knock-out stages. After a difficult campaign last year, Jurgen Klopp's side are flying in all competitions and have their sights set on yet another piece of continental silverware.
After a trip already to Linz, Austria, the Reds are on their second European trip of the season. What's the Toulouse away section like, where are the best bars and how easy is the ground to get to? Everything you need to know below…
What is Toulouse like for away fans?
A beautiful French city and the fourth-largest in the country, Toulouse is known for its pink terracotta buildings, its rugby and being the home of the European aerospace industry. It's also, of course, home to Toulouse FC.
Where to drink for Liverpool fans in Toulouse?
Stadium de Toulouse itself is poorly served by bars. Instead, you'll find plenty of great bars in the historic centre. Start your search around the Place du Capitole. We recommend Bar a La Une for a proper Toulouse experience, or The Melting Pot for a classic Irish bar.
Closer to the ground, La Bodega is a marquee offering food and drink behind the Honneur Sud stand. And there's a Snack-Buvette behind the main stand.
Your best bet, though, is by the St Michel metro stop (see directions below). There are good bars around here.

Although helpfully located in the centre of Toulouse on an island in the river Garonne, Stadium de Toulouse is three kilometres south of the city's historic centre and four kilometres from the primary train station.
The nearest metro stations for the Stadium de Toulouse are Empalot and St Michel. Both will drop you a 15-minute walk from the ground and can be reached on the yellow metro line, which also serves the historic centre and the area near the central station.
You can also take the bus number 12 or 38 to near the ground from the historic centre. These buses depart every 10-15 minutes.
On matchdays, free shuttle buses are provided, running between the train/metro station Arenes (on the red metro line).
There are also 1,000 parking spaces for bikes, for any fans wanting a cheap and less traditional route to the ground.
