Manchester United have set a UEFA Europa League attendance record, an all-time record crowd of 75,180 turning up at Old Trafford for their round of 16 second-leg meeting with Liverpool.

United take the accolade from Dynamo Kyiv, who overcame Everton in front of 67,553 supporters at this stage last season. Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, established a group stage record of 57,000 in November and have since accounted for two of the top five crowds.
