Liverpool were hugely impressive in their two-legged Champions League quarter-final win over runaway domestic champions Manchester City, the Reds putting the Citizens to the sword to the tune of 5/1 earlier this month. Their reward is a meeting with Serie A side AS Roma in the semi-final of the competition, the first leg taking place in the Italian capital.
Jurgen Klopp will naturally have been happy to have avoided the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, however he will be in no doubt as to the enormity of the task facing his side. Roma may be considered the weakest of the sides remaining in the Champions League although the fact that they dumped Barcelona out of the competition after going 4-1 down at the Nou Camp cannot be overlooked. The Italians looked dead and buried following their hammering in Spain, however they dominated from start to finish in front of their home fans and it was joy all round for Roma when they went through on the away-goal rule following a 3-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico last week.
Liverpool’s odds on winning the 2017/18 Champions League have been slashed from around 3/1 to as low as 2/1 with some bookmakers, this making them joint-second favourites to win the competition behind Real Madrid and alongside Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich.
