Liverpool FC dropped more points in the Premier League at the weekend following a disappointing goalless draw with Paul Lambert's relegation candidates Stoke City at Anfield last weekend.

Who'd have thought that playing no full backs against the sharpest front three in the world wouldn't have worked?

"Me, I will prepare a football game and it is quite special because it is a semi-final".

"If somebody (misbehaves), then it should be really massive, the punishment".

Roma will be without Diego Perotti and Kevin Strootman due to injury as they join Gregoire Defrel and Rick Karsdorp on the sidelines.

The forward group is the healthiest of the bunch with only Sadio Mane carrying a knock.

The Frenchman will leave the Emirates this summer after 22 fine years in north London. No one told Barcelona it is possible to beat you 3-0 because no one could imagine it could happen, but it happened.

"We shouldn't dismiss Roma bearing in mind they are at home". But Di Francesco said it was unrealistic for his team to completely change their plans simply to stop the Egypt international, who has netted 43 goals in all competitions this season. Furthermore, there will be a complete alcohol ban, as well as a crackdown on fake tickets. In that case you are lucky the game has two halves so we could recover and play a good second half.

'We are not Chelsea, We are not Barcelona. Roma will again need to win by three goals if they want to advance. "I don't think the absence of a staff member can be a factor". I think there was a warning for us for the way we played against City.

But Firmino is the most important. It would be a rare thing to do, a unique moment in our lives, in mine.

The exact reasons why are unclear but Jurgen Klopp's 'right-hand man' Željko Buvač stepped away from the club this week, leaving the Liverpool boss in a position he never wanted to be in.

"I cannot tell the boys old fairytales about their manager who came through at Madrid", said Klopp. It happens and then someone says, that's history.

"Lionetti added: "'We need to work to keep hardcore fans from both sides separated".

Can I listen to coverage on the radio?

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

"I am not here to say anything about Barcelona". "In games like these, they can hurt you in a flash - we've got to focus for 90 minutes and try to overturn the tie".
