AS Roma vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
Millions of football fans around the world will be tied up again on Wednesday evening, when Liverpool takes on the return in the semi-final of the Champions League in Rome against AS Roma. The English are in the first race thanks to the 5-2 victory of last week on roses, but the Italians have often chopped up with this little bit.
AS Roma will play for its second miracle of the season on Wednesday evening. In the previous round, the Italians wrote football history by winning against the big FC Barcelona in the return for home crowd 3-0, with which they were mercilessly clearing away the 4-1 defeat from the first leg. Against Liverpool, the Giallorossi will again have to win a difference of at least three goals, as trainer Eusebio di Francesco’s team was completely overwhelmed at Anfield Road last week: 5-2. Thanks to the late goals of Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti, however, the Romans can still hope for European glory.
In any case, AS Roma intends to make it a memorable evening again. “Just like FC Barcelona, the atmosphere will be fantastic again at the Stadio Olimpico,” says Patrik Schick. ‘Last week we saw that Liverpool in the back is vulnerable, so it is certainly possible to score three times.’ In this respect, Dzeko has an important role to play. The Bosnian knew in this edition of the Champions League already seven goals to make, including both at home and against FC Barcelona as last week on Anfield Road. Last weekend he underlined his good form by putting his name twice on the scoreboard in the 4-1 home win over Chievo. Kostas Manolas, Cengiz Ünder, Kevin Strootman and Alessandro Florenzi got some rest in the match, but will undoubtedly kick off again on Wednesday-evening.
In recent years you have regularly heard criticism that the Champions League had become too predictable, but that is absolutely not the case this season. The Liverpool from trainer Jürgen Klopp has been swinging throughout the season in the European champions ball and comes with 38 goals awfully close to the all-time record of 41 Champions League goals in a season of Real Madrid. Biggest taste maker is of course Mohamed Salah, who also played great again last week in the first match with two goals and two assists. “He is undoubtedly the best player in the world right now,” said Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard in a laudatory manner about the Egyptian. And that while he was taken over last summer for only 42 million euros from AS Roma, an absolute bargain.
Yet Salah is just like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo of flesh and blood. Last weekend an excellent opportunity was not spent on The Pharaoh, which put Liverpool at home against Stoke City on a goalless draw. The frustration dripped from the faces of The Reds, who did not get the scoreboard moving for the first time in nine official games. Sadio Mane had to leave that game because of injuries, but according to Klopp he will be back in Rome on Wednesday evening. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson are also doubtful about the return.
