Grobbelaar discusses Roma showdown, Salah's future — Liverpool


Roma stars Alisson and Daniele De Rossi expect a difficult game against Liverpool, although they believe all four Champions League semi-finalists are at a similar level.

There is no ill-feeling from the Italian side towards Salah following his departure to Liverpool in the summer.

"End of the day I'm freaking happy for both of my clubs reaching the semis and now one of them will be in the final".

The last time they played a draw with the Yellow and Reds was in January 2015 and punters who are bold can back a repeat of the outcome at a chunky (3.40).

Franck Ribery wasted the best chance of the first half when he created space inside the area on 37 minutes only to fire straight at Soria, who punched away the Frenchman's powerful drive.

"Everybody knows how big Mohamed's impact on our season has been", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said in comments published on the club's website.

Sevilla finished a man down after Joaquin Correa, who had earlier hit the crossbar, was sent off in the closing stages for a clumsy foul on Javi Martinez.

Grobbelaar will forever be remembered for play-acting during the penalty shoot out against the same Italian opposition as he turned his legs to jelly on his goal-line.

The Spanish defending champions Real Madrid were drawn against German team Bayern Munich in the other Champions League semi-final.

"Salah? Liverpool would have to be crazy to sell a player of his quality, unless someone offers an incredible sum of money".

Football is about speed, getting the ball wide, crossing and shooting - not endless amounts of passes. This will be their first Champions League semi-final since 2008, when they lost to Chelsea.

"It's worth more than three points, a place in the Champions League and the history around it", said Di Francesco, whose side won 2-1 in the last Serie A meeting last November. The competition's top-scoring team added five goals to their tally by beating favoured Manchester City in the quarter-finals.
