Liverpool paired with Roma in Champions League semi-finals

Domingo, 15 Abr, 2018

Roma also produced one of the most remarkable comebacks in Champions League history to knock out Lionel Messi's Barcelona with a 3-0 victory in the Italian capital that gave them an unexpected win on away goals over the two legs.

The La Liga power beat Juventus in the 2016-2017 Champions League finals, after beating its Bundesliga foe in the semifinals.

However, Der FCB manager Jupp Heynckes will be looking to end his time in Munich with European glory. I love the fans there and they love me too.

The Unfiltered back catalogue is FREE to listen to. Did Real Madrid and Bayern Munich avoid each other? We have a very strong team in front of us, one which eliminated Manchester City. With James in blistering form for the Germans, and as it most often happens on the football field, karma might just be around the corner. A month ago, everyone says we are champions and we cannot lose - now we lose three in a row.

When will the matches be played?

"They are formidable opponents".

They are 10 points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea and host Bournemouth to Anfield on Saturday. That was the only time Roma ever reached the semifinals.

"They play a good season after a difficult transfer window for them last year".

"I watched the second leg against Barcelona - that was outstandingly good".

Five-time European champions Liverpool have been drawn against Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League. The winners will face the winner of the other semi-final between Liverpool and AS Roma in the final in Kiev on 26 May.

"We need to think about ourselves and try to reproduce what we were able to show against Barcelona".

The first leg will be played April 24-25 with the return leg taking place on May 1-2.

Should Liverpool finally be felled in the competition there is no doubt as to who their record breaking attacker will be shouting for in the final. It's been a bit of a graveyard for unbiased officiating in recent years.

"Two teams with great tradition in European and world football, both play attractive football and love the sport".
