Liverpool performed impressively in this season’s Champions League competition. They beat AS Roma by 5-2 in the first match of the semi-finals and are favorites for the final. But it’s Real Madrid who somehow managed to reach the semi-finals. Real Madrid beat Bayern Munich by 2-1 in the first semi-finals.
The next semi-finals match between Liverpool vs AS Roma is scheduled to take place on 2nd May. In that match, the latter needs to win at least by 3-0 to reach the Finals. Since Real Madrid only won by a narrow one-goal in the first semi-finals the second match will be more interesting. Anyhow, the chances of Liverpool facing Real Madrid at UEFA Champions League finals at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev is very high.
