After Roberto Firmino’s goal brought Liverpool a 5-0 lead, it seemed Roma are on their way to be destroyed at Anfield, but the Reds’ approach until the end of the game let the Italian side to get back to this Champions League semi-final battle by scoring two quick goals. Considering how Roma eliminated Barcelona in the quarter-finals, a match at the Stadio Olimpico will be far from easy for the visitors, especially after Eusebio Di Francesco’s team boosted their confidence with a convincing 4-0 victory over Chievo Verona last weekend. As for the Merseysiders, a 0-0 draw with Stoke City in front of the home supporters might put them in trouble, as Chelsea could compromise their Champions League promotion spot in the last few games of the season, and a potential elimination in the semi-finals would be a big disappointment for England side, who demonstrated exceptional quality over the course of the year. Both teams are playing attractive, attacking-minded football, and both are having problems at the back, which is why this encounter might be as efficient as the last one.
Rick Karsdorp, Grégoire Defrel, Kevin Strootman, and Diego Perotti are struggling with injuries and will have to watch the duel from the stands. On the other hand, Klopp won’t have Joel Matip, Ádám Bogdán, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at his disposal, as all are yet to overcome their physical problems.
