Tuesday 24th April - Liverpool 5-2 Roma (SF 1st Leg)

Recommended Posts

Roma provided the upset of the season against Barcelona, but don't see them coming back again if they get heavily defeated at Anfield. 

Prediction Liverpool 3-1 Roma

Roma really used their height and physicality against Barca.

With such a narrow space the olimpico's pitch is, I don't think Liverpool will be as effective. 

Can see this possibly ending 2-1 Roma

Hopefully we're able to keep a clean sheet to take to Rome next week, that's important I think. 2-0

This one can go either way for me. Liverpool and Roma are 2 and alike in terms of quality, but the difference that I see is that Liverpool's style won't be as effective against a style such as Roma's then it would be against a Real Madrid or a Manchester City.

Despite that, I still think Liverpool should win 3-1. Will be interesting to see how Salah approaches this game given its against his ex-club and a team that basically redeveloped him after that Chelsea burning.

both clubs in equal footing in terms of their status in this year's edition of the UCL.   this will be a very exciting game indeed.

Nvm thought Roma were home first. 

Reckon Liverpool will win by a couple goals or a scoreless draw.

No idea how it'll go. But I'm hoping for another big Anfield performance from us to set ourselves up for the away leg. These lot had the comeback of the season (probably) against Barca, so preventing away goals is most likely crucial. But it's a European two legged tie... so that's always the case. Pretty obvious thing to say.

It's like saying it's better for us to score a lot of goals to set us up for the away leg. No shit, goals are how you win matches and progress with a higher aggregate score. And I obviously want us to do the best we can possibly do.

Hopefully the slip up over the weekend shows the lads they need to be cautious in defense... We know how difficult we can be for other sides to face, so I am just hoping for a big performance.

The Roma players and staff on arriving in Liverpool spent time at the Hillsborough remorial at Anfield and were visibly moved. 

Absolute class that, hope we give them a nice reception. 

Or they could have done it to actually cool the hostile reception on purpose so I hope we pelt their bus. 

Fuck knows :what:

just take the gesture as it is? very cynical to get to that conclusion if all they want to do is pay their respects?

I know mate I was joking. My absolute class statement in the first sentence was a true reflection.

Strootman will boss the midfield.

Former Liverpool and Roma defender John Arne Riise believes the Italians are "slight favourites" going into the Champions League semi-final.

The Norwegian left-back spent seven seasons in Merseyside and helped the club to win the Champions League title before moving to the Italian capital for three years.

Ahead of Tuesday's much-anticipated first leg between his former clubs, Riise believes Liverpool go into it as underdogs.

Imagine at the beginning of the season, someone told you either Roma or Liverpool would be in the Champions League final.

Well if they think that ignoring Firmino, Mane, Ox and both Robertson & TAA bombing down the wings is a good game plan then good for them. As much as Salah has done well, we are FAR from the one man team we were for a while with Suarez.

Yea I know, I think Roma just know Salah well so they will talk about him alot to the press.   Roma are an Italian outfit so they will have a plan away from home.

Historically though, italian teams tend to get crushed in England. This is something that happened even when Serie A was at its highest. I think the key for Roma today is scoring away goals. I don't think their defence can stop Liverpool's attack, but Under and Dzeko can and will have to step up.

As expected for us. Need another fast start, hopefully an early goal.

Come on you Reds

Very defensive from Roma but considering they keep leaking goals away from home, its understandable.

I don't like Roma as a Napoli fan, but I do like Serie A and hope they can overcome the Reds tonight. They have a long history of underachieving but are a massive club in reality. Would be nice to see them win a European title. Love me a bit of history being made.

That said, I have no problems with Liverpool and wouldn't mind seeing them in the final either. I also believe they are the only side left who stand a chance against Real Madrid. At least based on current playing form.
