When in Rome, Liverpool Still Score
Barcelona blew it because they failed to grab an away goal. The Merseysiders are never likely to suffer the same fate.
Roma gave themselves a lifeline, somehow, in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final but lightning won’t strike twice. The 3-0 victory which knocked out Barcelona was the sort of thing which happens once in a generation for a club, not twice in a month.
That said, the Italians’ home record in the Champions League is excellent - 4 wins in a row, also including a 3-0 victory over Chelsea, and 0 goals conceded all season.
But it would take a brave punter to back Liverpool to draw a blank anywhere. The Reds have scored 38 goals in the competition and one of Salah, Firmino and Mane will surely show up and end the hosts’ interest in the tie.
Back Roma to win on the night but both teams to score at best odds of 11/4 with PaddyPower.
