I Might Not Go To Anfield Because of This - Roma President

"In recent years Roma had not managed to compete through to the latter stages of multiple competitions".

With one eye on Tuesday's clash with Liverpool at Anfield, Roma coach Eusebio di Francesco left the bulk of his regular starters on the bench and the makeshift side delivered with a classy performance at relegation-threatened SPAL.

Roma pose a good blend of youth and experience, which some would say will benefit them.

Yes, fans may be relieved at the fact the Reds didn't draw one of the European powerhouses in Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, but supporters should not underestimate the Italian giants, even though they do not have the same successes as the Galacticos and the Bavarians. It will be a hard game both home and away.

"I like Ancelotti's calmness and the relationship he can establish with his players", said Di Francesco. Dzeko scored, won the penalty converted by club stalwart Daniele de Rossi for the second and harried and harangued the Barca defence into making mistake after mistake before Kostas Manolas headed in the goal that sent Roma through to a semi-final showdown with Liverpool.

They could easily get the post points and goals in a season records - both now held by Chelsea (05/06 and 09/10 respectively) - if they win three of their five games to go beyond 95 points and score another 11 goals in the process to beat the current record of 103.

"It is a tough gig against Roma". They will face a Liverpool side that demolished Manchester City over two legs in the quarterfinals, but who are not without their vulnerabilities at the back.

Here are five players Liverpool should watch out for. "I think I'm in the middle of the two".

"Our focus is on playing football and doing everything we can to win games, whether that is in the Premier League or the Champions League".

While it may seem like an eternity ago, few could have predicted Mohamed Salah's historic season in the English Premier League with Liverpool.

"It is a young team but I feel they are mature at the same time and are hungry to want more, learn and improve and that is the biggest thing", he added.

"We have to change: You can't play without desire, without competitive anger". It will be on sale from May 11. "We need to continue that, stay together as a group and focus on what is important".

It's available to pre-order in the club store and online now.
