Champions League: Semifinal pairings are determined

Champions League: Semifinal pairings are determined”

Bayern Munich will take on Real Madrid in the other semi, and whilst there's no easy side of the draw at this stage of the competition, the Reds will definitely have preferred to get the Italian outfit.

Liverpool fans have been waiting on tenterhooks since Tuesday evening to find out their fate for the last four.

As a result, reigning titleholders Real Madrid will lock horns with Bayern Munich while Liverpool and AS Roma will play against each other to book their spots in the final. "I always say that we take it step by step, but we are in the semi-final and anything can happen".

"But if anybody thinks this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person - they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona".

"Yes Barcelona scored four but it wasn't really a 4-1 game, Roma actually played really well at the Nou Camp". We played against Juventus and Barcelona at home in the first legs.

Real director Emilio Butragueno said Zinedine Zidane's team were confident they can win a third consecutive European crown.

Klopp believes Roma have underlined their quality by reaching the semi-finals, despite losing a player who has managed 39 goals and 11 assists in his first season with Liverpool. That was the only time Roma ever reached the semifinals. "It's a handsome city for sure, but we are not there for sightseeing". When we face Roma we will know everything about them. Where would they be if Mo was still there? It would be nice to go back to Rome, it's my old club. "He can deal with that, I am sure".

He said: "The teams are all too strong".

"At this level all the teams - Liverpool, Bayern, Real Madrid - are great sides, incredible".

Back in 1977, Liverpool beat Borussia Monchengladbach at the Stadio Olimpico and then overcame Roma in the 1984 final. You can not change it.

Today the much-anticipated draws for Europe's club competitions were made and there is much to look forward to.

The Liverpool manager said: "Of the three options that were available, I've never played there before so that is already exciting". "It's all about focus and switching on".

Apart from leading the Premier League in scoring, Salah is tied for second in the Champions League this term - behind Ronaldo of course - alongside hard-working teammate Roberto Firmino and Sevilla's Wissam Ben Yedder on eight goals.
