Liverpool travel to Roma this evening in the semi-final second-leg of UEFA Champions League 2017/18.
The match takes place at the Stadio Olimpico, where the winners face Real Madrid in the final in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday 26th May.
Liverpool, unbeaten in Europe this season, looked to have taken a firm grip on the tie when Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino each scored twice, and Sadio Mané once, in the first leg at Anfield on 24 April.
However, late goals from Edin Džeko and Diego Perotti have given Roma a glimmer of hope for the return leg – 5-2.
Roma have featured in only one previous European Cup semi-final, and were victorious – only to lose to Liverpool in the final at their own Stadio Olimpico.
While this is Liverpool’s tenth appearance in the last four of the European Cup, it is the first time the English club have got this far since 2007/08, when they suffered only their second semi-final defeat.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 from 7.00pm with live streaming via the BT Sport app and on BTSport.com.
Highlights of this match and last night’s tie between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich will be shown on ITV from 10.45pm tonight.
