There was an understandable sigh of relief when Liverpool drew Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League. Neither side wanted to draw defending champions Real Madrid or in-form Bayern Munich – the only side in the last four who will be championship winners this season – but this draw still represents a tough task for both sides.
Roma travel to Liverpool for the first leg at Anfield on Tuesday, April 24th and it should be a fantastic occasion as all European nights are in that stadium and hopefully our Liverpool v Roma betting tips will get you some winners. Don't waste more time and read the Liverpool v Roma preview!
The thought of Liverpool being able to win the Champions League this season wasn’t really a viable one at one stage. Their leaky defence looked no match for Watford let alone the cream of Europe. However, they have made it through to the last four of the Champions League and are favourites to reach the final with betting odds of 1.4 at William Hill with Ladbrokes offering 2.75 on Roma knocking Liverpool out.
Liverpool would have perhaps preferred the first leg to be played in Italy, but they got past Manchester City with the first leg at home and are more than capable of scoring goals on their travels. They have only lost one league and cup tie at Anfield this season when playing a weakened side against West Brom in the FA Cup.
Roma have a poor away record in the Champions League and have lost their last three conceding eight goals. Before that they drew 3-3 at Chelsea and their only win on their travels has been a 2-1 win at Qarabag. That’s their only win in their last 15 away Champions League games and they’ve played 27 away matches in this competition since their last clean sheet, so this could be damage limitation for the Italians. You can get odds at Ladbrokes of 1.6 to win this match but Liverpool with Roma 5.5 with Ladbrokes.
So what are our Liverpool v Roma predictions? Liverpool conceded at least twice in six of their first ten league and cup games this season but that’s all changed of late. The 3-0 win over Bournemouth was their fifth clean sheet in the last eight games and the fifth in a row at Anfield. They know just how crucial Roma’s away goal at Barcelona was in the last eight and if you fancy them to win this game to nil, the odds are 15/8 at Bet365.
The home side have scored 19 home Champions League goals this season and scored at least twice in all but one of their six games. They are 1.52 with 1xbet to score at least twice in this match as Mo Salah chases a goal against his former club.
The chances are there will be a few goals in this game and while six of Roma’s ten Champions League games have had over 2.5 goals scored in them, Liverpool’s 12 matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored on ten occasions. It’s a good idea to go to Ladbrokes and take 2.15 on Liverpool winning this game with over 2.5 goals being scored.
