Liverpool vs Roma

Europe Champions League – Semifinal

24/o4/2018

 

Liverpool is undefeated in last 7 matches in all competitions. Their defence has been a strength as they have kept eight clean sheets in all competitions since a 2-2 draw with Spurs in early February. Roma, meanwhile, managed to shut out Barcelona during their 3-0 win in the last round and relying on the strong defence, has limited opponents during this Champions League campaign. Don’t expect too much goalmouth action.
