The Roma vs. Liverpool match will be played on Wednesday, at the Olympic Stadium, Rome. This is the second semifinal leg of Champions League. In the first match played in Liverpool, the English team celebrated a 5:2 victory.

STATS

  • Only Liverpool defeated Roma in their last five games in all competitions. Last weekend, Roma's combined team defeated Chievo by 4:1.
  • Liverpool lost only one out of their 17 games in all competitions. Last weekend, they recorded a goalless draw against Stoke at home.

HEAD TO HEAD

These teams met six times since 1984. Roma recorded only one victory, Liverpool had four wins, while one game ended in a draw. In four out of those six games at least one team haven't scored a single goal.

ROMA NEWS

Roma will face a difficult challenge in the second leg. Against Barcelona they had to overcome the three-goals deficit from the first leg, and they will have to do the same thing again. On the other hand, even though the 5:2 defeat looks terrible, it is still better than a 5:0 defeat, which was the result after 80th minute of the first leg. Roma will have a similar game plan to the one they executed flawlessly against Barcelona. We will see if they can turn the tides one more time.

LIVERPOOL NEWS

Liverpool lost Alex Oxlade Chamberlain until the end of the season, and they already had several injured players, such as Matip, Can and Lallana. However, Sadio Mane will be ready after he suffered a minor injury this week, so we expect him alongside Salah and Firmino in attack. Liverpool will focus on defense and try to hurt Roma on counter attacks. One goal will probably seal the deal in the upcoming game.
