Roma reached the last four after an incredible comeback to beat Spanish giants Barcelona

Roma reached the last four after an incredible comeback to beat Spanish giants Barcelona

The first legs will be played on Tuesday, 24 April, and Wednesday, 25 April, while the return fixtures will take place on 1 and 2 May.

Mo Salah will be facing his former club.

The Reds drew Porto in the Round of 16, waltzing to a 5-0 aggregate win after facing one of, if not the easiest draws in the group stage (Sevilla, Spartak Moscow, Maribor).

A Champions League final for Bayern would be a fitting end to coach Jupp Heynckes' career with the German champions, who announced on Friday it had hired Niko Kovac to take over next season.

"It is the place, it is not who did what, it's the place".

There's no question the Reds' attack, paced by the incredible Mohamed Salah, is as exciting as any in the world. Fate has brought us to the semi-finals.

Madrid also relish playing at the Allianz Arena, and while the draw could have been easier, they will still be favorites to travel to Ukraine for the final.

The game is a repeat of 1984 European Cup final, when Liverpool won on penalties to secure their fourth title. And Roma are the clear outsiders - though that Barcelona win was no fluke.

Salah is locked in a battle with Tottenham's Harry Kane for the Premier League's Golden Boot, and he claims his centre-forward rivals have it "easier" - despite his four-goal advantage.

Liverpool may be the happiest team of the four after drawing the relative novices - but Roma proved in nullifying Barcelona that they will not be a team just along for the ride. "It's been a tough Champions League thus far drawing Paris (St Germain), Juve and now Bayern". The atmosphere is always important, of course.

"We're up against a strong side, it won't be easy, but I welcome the draw".

"Whichever opponent we would have got, I would have said there is a chance because it is football - so there is a chance against Roma, "Klopp said".

"I will watch them for sure because it is destiny or whatever", Klopp said of Liverpool's historic victories in the Italian capital.

Juventus and Napoli are locked in the top spots, with Inter Milan one point behind Roma and Lazio in fifth before visiting Atalanta later Saturday.

"Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto are so talented between the lines and I think Lazio are the best team in Italy when it comes to threading through passes to release their strikers".
