Frank Lampard raves about Liverpool FC after setting up Real Madrid clash

Adjust Comment Print

Roma, knowing only another historic night at the Stadio Olimpico would see them into the final - they became the first team to come back from a three-goal deficit in the quarterfinals with a dramatic win over Barcelona - started the match at blistering pace. They are four times in the last five years and still together.

Only one arrest was reported following the second leg, which Liverpool lost 4-2 as they reached the final 7-6 on aggregate.

The hosts missed a string of second-half chances as Liverpool sat back and invited pressure onto themselves. We need to deliver and the good news is we have now a real group of players.

Liverpool players were in a frenzy at the away dressing room in Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday evening May 2 as they celebrate reaching the Champions League final.

That was the first goal Roma had conceded at home in the competition this season, but they were only behind for six minutes thanks to a calamitous own goal.

The joy on the faces of the Liverpool fans genuinely warms the cockles of the heart, with some nearly close to tears.

"There was lots of space", Klopp said.

The forward movement from Bayern against Los Blancos was excellent, but too often Zidane's side were caught out by switches of play and quick interchanges in the final third, with Keylor Navas - mocked for his failure to keep out Joshua Kimmich's strike in the first leg - standing tall, making an impressive eight saves at the Bernabeu.

"We can play much better, so Sadio - what a game, scored one goal, was really involved in good situations".

"We are deserved finalists 100 percent", said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp.

"There's still a job to do".

Merseyside Police has thanked Liverpool fans for their excellent behaviour before, during and after the Champions League semi-final second leg away to Roma. We will be ready.

The showpiece against Real Madrid in Kiev later this month will mark Klopp's seventh final as a manager.

Madrid meanwhile have to stop Liverpool's attacking trio - without question the most formidable in the world right now - when the two face off at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium on May 26.

"So if we talk about experience, they are experienced and we are not".

Liverpool won the title three times under Shankly and also collected two FA Cups and a UEFA Cup - the club's first European trophy - as his magnetic personality and fierce will to win fulfilled his dream of turning the club into "a bastion of invincibility".

Asked about the moment after the match, Wijnaldum said: "We already had an agreement a few games ago that I would run to him if I scored but it didn't happen". I wanted but now it's over and we are fine You don't come to the final without luck. They don't hang silver medals at (the Liverpool training ground) Melwood. That's a pity, that's the game.
