UEFA general secretary David Taylor draws Liverpool out during the Champions League Group Stage draw at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.

“Fantastic draw”, “2nd leg will be very very tough” – Liverpool fans react to drawing Roma

Liverpool have been pitted against Roma in the Champions League semi-finals, and fans have responded bullishly to the draw.

The Reds earned a magnificent 5-1 aggregate victory over Man City on Tuesday, prevailing 2-1 at the Etihad after second-half goals from deadly duo Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Supporters have been waiting with bated breath to see who Jurgen Klopp‘s side would face in the semis, and all has now been revealed.

Roma will stand between Liverpool and a place in next month’s final in Kiev, with Salah doing battle against his former club.

The Giallorossi enjoyed a stunning win of their own against Barcelona, overturning a 4-1 first leg deficit to win 3-0 on Tuesday.

The first leg will take place at Anfield on April 24/25, with the return fixture at Stadio Olimpico on May 1/2. Bayern Munich take on Real Madrid in the other tie.

Here’s how fans have reacted to the news on social media and our forums.

Really difficult team to play if they turn up on the night. Not to be underestimated but if we play to our ability we can do this. Clean sheet at our place is a must I feel. Proper exciting though. Can’t wait. C’mon you Reds.

Well, this is very exciting! Happy with Roma, especially knowing there won’t be any complacency from the team just because they aren’t Bayern/Madrid.

Glad we avoided the Bernabeu. It’s been a bit of a graveyard for unbiased officiating in recent years.

What a draw!!! If we can mirror a similar result both home and away like City then…Boooooom!

Think this is a great draw for us. Roma had a great result v Barca but they are miles off the pace in Serie A which is not as good a League. Would have preferred second leg at home but all in all a great draw.

Can’t wait to see how VvD puts Dzeko in his pocket. YNWA!!!
