ROMA vs. LIVERPOOL
| Wednesday, May 2nd |
Champions League | STADIO OLIMPICO
7:45PM GMT/2:45PM EST
We’re finally here. Last week was an attacking masterclass which saw Liverpool dominate every square yard of the pitch for about 50 minutes. The final scoreline, 5-2, rather flattered the visitors. It could have, perhaps should have, been worse. However, this is no time to dwell on the two late conceded goals. If Liverpool can replicate their performance from last week, even if for only another half, they will be clean through to the Champions League final to face Real Madrid. As we saw against Manchester City, it is easier said than done, and things can change fast in the knockout rounds of a European competition. Hopefully we don’t make the same mistake as in the last round, and score first, instead of conceding ridiculously early. Three goals up, and 90 minutes to go. Let’s do this.

FIRST HALF HIGHLIGHTS
9’ - Mané - Liverpool break quickly through Firmino who slides Mané down the left channel. Cooly finished, and with Liverpool taking their first chance of the match Roma are rocked back.
25’ - Wijnaldum - After Roma get back in it with an unlikely, unlucky own goal off James Milner, Gini Wijnaldum gets a goal—away from home!—to put the Reds in a commanding position knowing even five for Roma tonight only forces extra time.
