Liverpool simply need to avoid a heavy defeat to reach the 2018 Champions League final and there’s a decent chance they will actually beat Roma for the second time in eight days.
The Reds seem to have this competition by the scruff of the neck after eliminating Porto and Manchester City in previous rounds, with Jurgen Klopp’s side doing a number on their Italian opponents last week to win 5-2.
Now they are set on pressing home the advantage and the problem for Roma will be the need to come on to the front foot and leave themselves exposed to Liverpool’s deadly counter-attacks.
Mohamed Salah should benefit from the space in behind along with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, with the trio likely to run their opponents ragged when given a chance.
It’s worth noting that Liverpool won at the Etihad Stadium as City were chasing down a 3-0 deficit and we might see something similar happening this time around.
