Liverpool have been written off at least twice in this season’s Champions League yet they have made it to the Semifinals and face another team that was considered not good enough for this stage.
The Reds drew their first two Champions League group games to Sevilla and Spartak Moscow yet they finished the group stage as the second highest scorers in the competition with 23 goals, they have scored many more goals now. In the quarterfinals against arguably the best team in England at the moment, Liverpool were yet again considered the underdogs, but they roared to a 5-1 aggregate victory over Pep Guardiola’s men and their fans would now be dreaming of another final in Kiev, Ukraine.
Jurgen Klopp rested most of his star men at the weekend as they threw away a two goals lead to draw 2-2 against West Brom, Mohamed Salah was started and the Egyptian scored his 31st Premier League goal of the campaign, he has also netted 8 times in 10 Champions League games and he would be one of the stars of this game.
AS Roma are not to be underrated also. The Romans defeated Barcelona 3-0 in the last round to progress 4-4 on aggregate having trailed 4-1 from the first leg, they drew their next game against Lazio before earning wins against SPAL and Genoa ahead of this match.
They have impressively scored in all but one of their Champions League away games this season and they would be looking to get another important away goal here also.
