Champions League Roma – Liverpool
At the Olimpico in Roma, the Giallorossi hosts attempt the second miracle after the defeat at the Anfiled. Against Liverpool who appeared invincible in the first leg, they will need 3 goals again, as against Barcelona, to reach a cup final after 35 years of absence.
Eusebio di Francesco’s Roma lost 5 to 2, in the first leg, at Anfield. Thanks to an ineffective tactical set-up, the team was succubus of Salah’s raids on the wing, and with a Juan Jesus always left alone, in one against one, against the Egyptian. With the passage to 4 – 3 – 3, and the entry of Perotti and Schick, the team has changed face and has been able to react to heavy passive, first with a goal of Dzeko, and then with a penalty of Perotti. The Giallorossi are in shape, they have not only the head on the return of this Wednesday, and they showed this Saturday defeating Chievo for 4 to 1. Everything leaves presage to a Roma charged for this challenge, realy to be able to play his chances, once again, despite a new venture to be made. Given the effectiveness of the final minutes, DI Francesco seems inclined precisely to 4 – 3 – 3 as a form to be adopted. With Perotti probably out of the game, El Shaarawy, Schick and Under will play 2 places on the wings to support the first Dzeko tip. Nainggolan, De Rossi and Strootman unmovable in midfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool proved to be a real crush. There was nothing to do for Roma in that of Liverpool, where the Reds have dominated far and wide, demonstrating an intensity and a game technique enviable by all teams in Europe. The 2 goals of Salah, the 2 of Firmino and the goal of Manè were the demonstration of how Liverpool wants to get the final and wants to do it in style. The 2 goals taken in the final, however, make it clear how the team has defensive debacles and sometimes drops in concentration (see in Premier, where the Reds are 2 draws, a 2 to 2 against the West Bronwich last, and one 0 to 0 against the penultimate Stoke). For the return race, however, there will be no frills and you will go to Rome with the same form seen so far, a 4 – 3 – 3 on the trio Salah, Manè and Firmino ready to make raids once again. Wynaldum, Milner and Henderson still confirmed.
Roma – Liverpool Prediction
The game in the program sees a great balance, with a Roma that will try from the first minutes to look for the way of the Goal and reassemble the result of the first leg. If successful, the final result would be open to any scenario. For this reason we are inclined to a 1 with an Over2.5, sign of a challenge that could again be unbelievable
