Liverpool vs AS Roma Match Preview
Liverpool will hope to make their home advantage count when they take on Roma in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final. This Liverpool vs AS Roma fixture will be played at the Anfield on Tuesday, April 24, so check out our Liverpool vs AS Roma prediction and betting tips.
What a season Liverpool have had! Not even their biggest fans gave them a chance to progress after they opened their campaign with two draws against Sevilla and Spartak Moscow in the group stages. However, Jurgen Klopp’s men have improved since then and their quarter-final win against Manchester City is seen as a great stop in their season. Ahead of this Liverpool vs AS Roma first leg encounter, Klopp has rested many of his regulars for the weekend trip to West Bromwich Albion that the Reds could only manage to draw. A top-four place in the league is guaranteed for Liverpool and although they are in a direct fight with Manchester United for the second spot, Liverpool may prioritize Champions League football and should start this game as heavy favourites. Liverpool are yet to lose in the Champions League this season and in six games at home, they have conceded only four, while conceding 19.
Not that Roma would be a walkover, in fact far from that! The Italian side has shocked everyone by coming back from a three-goal deficit against Barcelona in the quarter-final. They remain unbeaten in their last four games (W3, D1) before this Liverpool vs AS Roma first leg fixture, the confidence in the camp is sky high before their first-ever appearance at this stage. That they managed to score three goals past Barcelona without conceding even one in their second leg should raise hopes of the visitors. However, their away form in the Champions League is a worry as they remain winless in four (D1, L3) and have lost the last three games.

Liverpool have kept four clean sheets in a row at home in the Champions League and that is a sign of how well they have improved. Roma may be coming off the biggest comebacks of all time in Champions League football history, but getting past Liverpool will take a lot. We are backing a home win in this fixture and do not be surprised if Salah gets on the scoring sheet at some point of the game.
