Johannesburg: Liverpool will be looking forward to continuing with their recent success in the champions league, while Roma will also hope to emulate their last game performance against Barcelona in their last meeting where they won.
The first leg of the champion’s league will take place tonight at Anfield where Liverpool will be hosting AS Roma for the semi-final after beating Manchester City.
These both sides go into the first leg semi-final highly motivated after beating two European champions who were tipped for the title contenders.
Ahead of the eagerly anticipated clash, manager Jurgen Klopp addressed the media on Monday and said ‘it is going to be an entertaining match of football” said Liverpool coach.
This comes after the Egyptian star Mohamed Sallah has been named Professional Association player of the year.
It is believed that As Roma would be working hard to keep Sallah quite throughout the game as he is regarded as the danger man for Liverpool.
