Match : Liverpool vs Roma
Competition : Champions League
Time / Date : 21:45h / 24 April 2018
Venue : Anfield
Very few expect The Reds at this stage of the competition,but here they are.Liverpool have kept clean sheets in each of their last four Champions League home matches, their best run in the competition’s history.
Jurgen Klopp opted to rest a number of key figures for their trip to West Brom on Saturday. They have a top four spot all but wrapped up now, and while they are in a battle for 2nd place with Manchester United the Champions League takes all priority right now. Roberto Firmino, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were all left out of the starting lineup in that 2-2 draw against The Baggies.
Same for them , almost no body expect them here.Roma side created history by overturning a first leg 4-1 defeat at Barcelona with a 3-0 home win to dump the soon-to-be crowned Spanish Champions out of the competition.

Roma have won four, drawn one, and lost two of their seven meetings with Liverpool, although the last three of these wins for the Italians have been in friendly matches. Competitively, Liverpool have won two, drawn one, and lost one of their four encounters.
Anfield has been the setting for a fair few goals this season, and most of them have come for the hosts. They have scored 34 goals in their last 12 competitive games there, scoring at least two goals in 11 of these matches. However, they’re facing a Roma side who have only failed to score in one of their last 11 trips away in all competitions and in all of their Champions League away days this season, including a three goal haul at Stamford Bridge.
