Who will win in the Champions League semi-final - AS Roma or Liverpool?

Salah will revisit the Stadio Olimpico on May 2 for the second leg of the semifinal tie.

"At this level all the teams - Liverpool, Bayern, Real Madrid - are great sides, incredible".

Liverpool beat runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate to set up their meeting with Roma. With the second leg at the Bernabeu, and with Ronaldo in their side, Real are the slight favourites as they bid to win the Champions League for the third year in a row.

Roma have been drawn against Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals after the Italian side produced a historic comeback as they beat Barcelona 3-0 to qualify on away goals after they had lost the first leg 4-1 at Camp Nou.

Atletico Madrid were the team that each of the other semifinalists were desperate to avoid, but Arsenal, having had the misfortune of being paired with Diego Simeone's men, are perhaps the only surviving club capable of beating the Spanish outfit.

The Spain worldwide wished his former teammate James Rodríguez "good luck" after the Colombian midfielder completed a two-year loan move to Bayern Munich last summer, joking that his warm wishes would soon go away if the pair were to meet again in the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger's team will have to nullify the threat of Diego Costa, who scored three goals in six games against the Gunners during his time at Chelsea, and also find a way to keep Antoine Griezmann, Atleti's 25-goal top scorer, quiet.

"When the draw was made, Barcelona seemed pretty happy to have picked us, and their local papers even called us a 'bonbon.' The first leg went the way 90 per cent of people expected, but fortunately these ties are played over 180 minutes". The final will be played on May 16 in Lyon, France.

Salzburg have already beaten Marseille once in the competition this season, a 1-0 victory in Austria.
