We need to score the next goal or this could end up going all wrong.

Can't be often a player with Salah's assist stats is called greedy.

The luck is certainly with Liverpool here, that's two clear penalties that Roma have been wrongly denied.

Getting a bit ragged here, thank fuck we have the cushion we have. Although if they get another goal I wouldn't be surprised to see us fall apart.

He's tries to go solo a bit too often, especially in the last couple of months. Perhaps calling him greedy is a tad harsh, but his sky high confidence has given him a small case of tunnel vision.

I was being facetious mate, I know exactly what you mean. It must be difficult not to believe you can't go on your own all the time given how well he has been playing though.

second most shots in the league this season with 139, you've got a point imvho and that skinner mate. assist stats can be rather misleading too.

Doesn't prove anything about greed, especially in our system. But you know that anyway.

Mane has done reasonably well but in the final third all the front three have been lacking. And yes, even Salah.

proves that the only player with more shots this season is harry kane, who is also a greedy player. firmino only has 78. selfless.

What a hit.

And now that we have a two goal deficit, the two incorrect decisions on the Roma penalties carry a little more weight...

Not sure what to make of this. Liverpool have been battered. If Real can impose themselves as Roma have tonight they’ll stroll the final IMO.

The least justified penalty of the three is given. Can't grumble too much I guess.

Oh well, we're there. And as usual it's not done easy.

Somehow Liverpool have managed to scrape through with a large slice of luck after, at one stage, being 5-0 up in the tie.

Classic Liverpool, I suppose.

If they give Real Madrid as many decent chances as they gave Roma tonight they will be mauled.

Over two legs Real would have the advantage. In a one off game at a neutral venue, we have a decent chance although I wouldn't call us favourites unlike Saltire and Bilo. We need the front three to be on song though, unlike tonight. They were poor, hence why we scraped through in the end.

Thought Liverpool got away with that. The handball from Alexander-Arnold and the Dzeko foul in the incorrectly given offside should have been given which would have brought Roma level. And aside from that, Roma had so many chances in that game.

That said Liverpool were brilliant in the first leg and probably just about deserve to win. But they’ll have to defend much better against Real if they want to win the final. You can’t give those sorts of chances to the likes of Ronaldo.

The nerves seemed to show for Liverpool tonight but they got over the line. What a semi-final it has been over two legs!
