A Tight Game Expected As Liverpool Host Roma In Massive Champions League Semi Final

Tuesday 24th April 2018, 7.45pm - Liverpool v Roma (Anfield)

An excellent week of European football begins with the meeting between Liverpool and Roma at Anfield on Tuesday night. The two teams haven’t actually met in official competition since the 2001/2002 Champions League, going in Liverpool’s favour, but now they reunite as probably the most exciting teams to watch in the tournament this year.

Tips Draw and over 1.5 goals    Best Bet @ 19 / 5  

Liverpool are undefeated in their Premier League home campaign all season, and it will be hard for Roma to get a result at the notoriously uncomfortable Anfield. A draw is best for the Giallorossi at 10/3 with Paddy Power. Liverpool have only lost once to Manchester United- in a run of 15 games, stretching back to the end of January. In the Champions League they haven’t in fact been beaten since a 1-0 loss to Real Madrid in November 2014, back when Brendan Rogers was manager, but this neglects the two seasons without being in the tournament.

This year, the cumulative 5-1 victory over Manchester City across two games was the epitome of Liverpool’s excellent football across the season, and particularly in the Champions League, and it may be likely that this is the toughest draw Roma could have asked for.

However, Liverpool surprised many by only managing a draw against lowly West Bromwich at the weekend, after going two goals ahead, and there are definite frailties which still exist, albeit ones that are usually easier to cover up thanks to their attacking prowess. Ultimately, the chance for Roma to nick a goal in a Both Teams To Score punt is very short at 7/10 with betfair. Better is a Draw and over 1.5 goals at 19/5 with betfred.

What Roma accomplished against Barcelona in the Quarter-Finals cannot be understated. Daniele De Rossi produced a performance of a lifetime in the second leg in Italy, capped off with an excellent penalty to take the score against Barca to 2-0 in the middle of the most remarkable comeback. However, it is important to remember that preceding this, they only managed to slip through past Shakhtar Donetsk on the virtue of an away goal.

Liverpool are an extremely tough test if Roma want to live up to the promise they demonstrated in the second game against Barcelona. It is most likely that the Stadio Olimpico will probably the setting for Roma to best get through to the Final in Kiev, after their magnificent performance in the Last Eight, and expecting a cagey encounter in England to avoid a deficit at Anfield is a good shout. For Roma to try for a clean sheet, they are best 7/1 with bet365. A HT/FT draw is the same price with Bet Victor.

For Liverpool, Virgil Van Djik has shored up things at the back, but of equal deserving praise are Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold. This triumvirate is finally going someway to balance the responsibility that has been placed firmly on their attacking line for the majority of the season.

In the past seven European games, they have recorded an excellent five clean sheets. Nathaniel Clyne and Joel Matip are still out with injury.

The choice is entirely open on which Liverpool player to pick to open the scoring with the three forward players who have collected unanimous acclaim throughout the season. Although all eyes will be on recently-announced Player of the Year Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian has by far the shortest first goalscoring odds- best at 14/5 with BetVictor- and it’s probably a better idea to back Saido Mane.

The diminutive Senagalese has scored seven in his last six European appearances. He is offered at 6/1 to opening the scoring with BoyleSports. To score anytime with a Liverpool win maybe more preferable, this is at 2/1 (BoyleSports).

The quality these two teams have demonstrated in recent weeks makes for a genuinely fascinating encounter, with the football fan being spoilt this year for entertainment; both Liverpool and Roma’s unpredictability thanks to rather erratic form and similar league positioning- both are in third in their respective leagues adds a sense of excitement to the game; will we see the Liverpool who comprehensively embarrassed ‘best team in the world’ Manchester City, or the one that drew against West Brom?
