Jurgen Klopp- Jurgen Klopp promises Liverpool players as ready to 'fight for our dreams' in race for Champions League final spot

He posted: "Don't think we actually played great! never defended well and never used the ball as well as we normally do! having said that GET IN!" He looked hesitant to go forward (understandably) but he could have done a bit more to aid the attackers.

VAR has already been implemented in Serie A, but is not in place for the Champions League and UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has already announced the the competition will not utilise it for next season either.

Nainggolan's second, which came from a stoppage-time penalty, moved Roma to within one goal of forcing extra time, but Liverpool, who clinched the last of their titles in 2005, held on to reach their 10th European Cup final.

But Klopp will tell you it's all down to the incredible team rather than individual brilliance. I hear pundits on TV saying it and it's like, 'Oh my god!' He's got 27 goals!

DF Ragnar Klavan, NR - Brought on to stiffen up the defence but nearly caused havoc by conceding a very harsh penalty.

Liverpool players hold a banner in English and Italian in support of Liverpool fan Sean Cox at the end of the Champions League semifinal second leg soccer match between Roma and Liverpool at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, Wednesday, May 2, 2018. "We'll go in as underdogs but sometimes that can be a good thing". They might score but Liverpool will create so many chances in the game.

"The game was wild".

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have made Champions League history. However, he just wasn't good enough today. A semi-final first leg victory in Munich proved pivotal as a 2-2 draw with Bayern in Spain got them over the line.

On the pitch, Eusebio Di Francesco's Roman side are hoping for another magical comeback after overturning a 4-1 first-leg deficit against Barcelona to put them through to the final four.

Without Dzeko, God only knows where Roma would have been in this competition. I said before the game that he's building a formidable team here and that was proved again tonight.

Two of European football's most successful clubs will meet in the Champions League final when Real Madrid face Liverpool in Kiev. "They took all the risks and we punished it with the counter-attack, but then we gave away a goal".

The two sides have almost identical strengths and weaknesses, but one area in which the Spanish side are unquestionably stronger is midfield, with the likes of Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Mateo Kovacic and Luka Modric at Zidane's disposal.

Madrid have won the last two editions of the tournament, while the Reds have not been champions of Europe since 2005.
