Liverpool vs Roma Preview:

Liverpool booked their place in the final four with a sensational 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City. The Reds had become the first English club to beat City this season when they won a seven-goal thriller with the Premier League champions in January, but the best was yet to come as a sensational first-half blitz at Anfield handed them a 3-0 lead to take to the Etihad Stadium for the second leg. Jurgen Klopp’s men then completed the job in fine style as they won the return meeting too, by a 2-1 scoreline, and that has made them a real dark horse to go all the way this season.
Roma, of course, have ambitions of their own and it has to be said that their quarter-final success was even more stunning than Liverpool’s. The Italian club appeared to be dead and buried after a 4-1 first-leg defeat in Barcelona, but Edin Dzeko’s strike 10 minutes from time at the Camp Nou turned out to be more than just consolation when the two teams resumed their tie in the Italian capital. Kostas Manolas’ 82nd minute goal wrapped up a 3-0 victory for Roma on the night, and with the aggregate score tied at 4-4 that mean Roma went through courtesy of the away goals rule.
