Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson revealed that he was targeted with lighters by Benfica fans during their Champions League quarter-final. He joked that he hoped that it would help them quit smoking. The incident took place late in the game when he was taking a corner. Ibrahim Konate, Sadio Mane, and Luis Diaz scored for the visitors in a 3-1 win.

“I had quite a few lighters thrown at me – maybe it will help them stop smoking. You’ve got to take the positives. We’ve seen it a lot, people getting hit, luckily they were all quite close to me but they didn’t hit me,” Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson said. “It’s tough when it’s late in the game and the fans are frustrated but you should not throw stuff onto the pitch. It could hurt people. I was just trying to take the corner and get out of there as quick as possible.”
