CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LIVERPOOL TO MAKE ROMA PAY

LIVERPOOL TO MAKE ROMA PAY

24th April 2018

If you'd asked most Liverpool fans they would have been more worried about beating Man City than Roma. There was an undoubted leap of delight from Jurgen Klopp when this draw was made with the Reds avoiding Real Madrid and Bayern.

Liverpool, let it not be forgotten beat Manchester City - Premier League Champiosn in a canter - 5-1 in the quarters.

Klopp will be hoping the PFA Player of the Year, Mo Salah can make his former team pay for letting him move to Ebgland in the summer. The £35 million price tag seems a snip now.

Salah just can't stop scoring, and Liverpool's talisman may make the difference.

Roma have progressed with some solid away performances and Liverpool know they may need to take at least one goal if not two to Italy. Barcelona couldn't protect a three goal lead last time.

That all said its a big ask to deliver at 4/7 in a sem-final, against such a compact defensive outfit. The value is in the draw at 7/2 - Roma will prove very hard to break down and Liverpool's price is probably too short.
