Liverpool head in the 2nd leg of their Champions League semi-final clash against Roma holding a desperate lead, but they will have to be alert of the Italians’ capacity for a comeback.
Like Roma will have to pull off another grand UEFA Champions League comeback if they’re to beat Liverpool to a place in the final, with the Reds travelling to the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday enjoying a 5-2 cover in their favour.
Champions League – Semi-finals
Liverpool ran riot at Anfield in the first leg of their European semi-final and will be hopeful of snatching a vital away goal at the Stadio Olimpico as they look to finish what they started on Merseyside.
Mohamed Salah will return to his former stomping ground as a bigger and better talent than the one that left Roma’s ranks last summer, but the Giallorossi will do their utmost to ensure he doesn’t score this time around.
A spot in the final later this month. Liverpool is in a great spot with a 5-2 lead after the first leg, but Roma’s two away goals mean a 3-0 win or a 4-1 win will see them go through.
Roma puts forward a valiant effort, but it’s not nearly enough as Jurgen Klopp’s team gets to the final. Roma 2, Liverpool 1.
