Stats: Why Roma can shock Liverpool and win at Anfield in the UCL semis

While many fans are excited for the Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Champions League clash, another interesting semi-final tie will be offered to football lovers in the form of Liverpool vs Roma. This last-four matchup will see the two underdogs in the tournament go head to head for a spot in the final.

It will also see the exciting Merseyside giant back in action. Klopp’s men will not want to experience an awful setback and thus must win at home before traveling to the tough Stadio Olimpico.

On paper, the first leg Anfield tie should be an easy win for Liverpool due to their form of their attacking trio – namely Salah – and their unbeaten home run in Europe this season. However, the stats also point to the Giallorossi winning in England and here’s why:

They’ve done it before

Roma’s record against Liverpool isn’t excellent, as they have lost a final and were knocked out in two two-legged encounters in their five previous meetings. However, the Italian club has won one of their two trips to Anfield.

Liverpool’s not-so-perfect home record vs Italian sides

Played: 10

Won: 6

Drew: 0

Lost: 4

Their recent Anfield run vs Italian sides

In their last three home games against Italian clubs, the Reds have lost twice.

Roma will be looking to Dzeko for inspiration, but the Bosnian must improve against the Reds 

Also, it just seems written in the stars

While Roma’s record in England is poor, having won only once and lost nine times in 16 trips there, that sole victory came at none other than Anfield back in 2000/01.
