Liverpool fans want revenge over Brazilian side Flamengo after they beat River Plate 2-1 in the Copa Libertadores final on Saturday, which could see the two sides face each other at the Club World Cup in Qatar.
The two sides have history – having played each other in 1981, with the South Americans beating the Reds 3-0 in Tokyo to win the Intercontinental Cup, also known as the Toyota Cup.
Should Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain be a regular starter at Liverpool?
Both sides won their respective continental tournaments, the European Cup and the South American cup competition to qualify.
Fans of the Brazil Serie A team have a song which commemorates the victory and takes a dig at their European rivals.
The two teams will head to the Middle East as they look to lift the trophy for the first time and both will have to negotiate through their respective semi-final games if they are to repeat the match 38 years on.
Supporters were excited about the prospect of facing the South American outfit and went to social media to discuss their feeling towards the tie.
Here are some of the many responses from Liverpool fans, who seem delighted at the prospect of a blockbuster final against the Brazilian outfit:
Flamengo then. A possible repeat of 1981. They won’t have Zico this time. 👍 #LFC

So Flamengo win the Copa Libertadores. That’s who we’ll play in the World Club Cup final should we make the final. Chance to avenge the 3-0 defeat in Tokyo in 1981. #LFC
