Liverpool's team bus arrived at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium without incident, fulfilling Pep Guardiola's earlier prediction that it would not be subjected to the same violent welcome that City's transport endured.

The sides meet for their Champions League quarterfinal second leg on Tuesday with Liverpool 3-0 ahead from the first leg at Anfield.

Manchester City later arrived to the reception of a few hundred fans.
