Liverpool holds off Roma to reach Champions League final

Manager Jurgen Klopp celebrates with Dejan Lovren of Liverpool at full time during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg match between A.S. Roma and Liverpool at Stadio Olimpico

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren believes 12-time winners and title holders Real Madrid should fear the Reds in the Champions League final later this month.

The Giallorossi defeated Liverpool 4-2 in the Second-Leg of the Champions League Semi-Final, but went out 7-6 on aggregate.

"You can not be more experienced in this competition than Real Madrid", the German manager added.

"I know it is hard to ref but it is really embarrassing that we lose on aggregate like that", said billionaire Pallotta, who runs the Raptor private investment group in the United States.

"I have big respect for Real Madrid and we are not the best team in the world but we have a great team".

Liverpool now sit third in the Premier League table but losing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday will hand the Blues, who have a game in hand, a great chance of catching up.

However, the Liverpool manager revealed on Wednesday that although his team began their Champions League campaign as rank outsiders, he was confident that the style of play in the competition would suit his players.

Those decisions prompted Roma's American owner, James Pallotta, to say VAR must be introduced in the Champions League.

Liverpool holds off Roma to reach Champions League final

Liverpool are now a step away from ending the club's six-year trophy drought and lift their first piece of silverware under Klopp's management, having lost the finals of the League Cup and Europa League in 2016.

Wherever Liverpool go there tends to be goals so I'm going to have a punt on a 9/1 longshot for the Blues to win 2-1.

"At Anfield we conceded a goal that was offside and today there were two penalties not given to us, one of which should have led to a red card", Monchi said.

Uefa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Roma relating to the game at home to Liverpool.

The Egyptian sensation is hotly tipped to be Cristiano Ronaldo's fierce rival for the Balon D'or this year, but Salah maintains that the game will be between two top footballing sides, with the individual battle insignificant in comparison.

Roma, knowing only another historic night at the Stadio Olimpico would see them into the final - they became the first team to come back from a three-goal deficit in the quarterfinals with a dramatic win over Barcelona - started the match at blistering pace. Liverpool were the better side and finally made the breakthrough in the 82nd minute through Alan Kennedy, making Bob Paisley the first manager to win the cup three times.

It means all talk of the final in Kiev will be put on hold to concentrate on the job as, when Klopp was asked whether that was the most important game of his career, he replied: "To be honest, the most important game is the Chelsea one on Sunday. We will be ready", said the German. He looked good, but I have to think about (whether to use him).
