Liverpool Land Roma In The Champions League Semi-Finals

Liverpool Land Roma In The Champions League Semi-Finals

The last time the European Cup semi-finals featured a side from England, Germany, Spain and Italy was 1981. On that occasion, Liverpool defeated Bayern Munich over two legs in the semi-final to progress to the final against Real Madrid, whom they defeated 1-0 in Paris.

If they are to repeat the trick again in 2018, they will take an alternative route, as theyve drawn Roma.

It once again fell to UEFA's ambassador Andriy Shevchenko to draw the balls from the bowl.
