De Futebol Liverpool advances to the Champions League Final!

Liverpool scored two away goals at the Italians house but had to hang on for a 6-5 aggregate win over AS Roma. Roma won 4-2 however the Reds are on to the finals of the Champions League against two-time defending champion Real Madrid at Kiev on May 26th.

Report:” Liverpool are the first Premier League side since 2012 to reach the UEFA Champions League final after claiming a thrilling 7-6 aggregate semi-final victory over Roma.

Leading 5-2 from the first leg, Liverpool took a second-leg lead in Rome when Sadio Mane punished a mistake from Radja Nainggolan on nine minutes.

Roma equalised through James Milner’s unlucky own goal but Georginio Wijnaldum‘s close-range header on 25 minutes put Liverpool ahead again.

And although Roma scored three second-half goals, from Edin Dzeko and two late on from Nainggolan, a 4-2 victory on the night was not enough to deny Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will now play Real Madrid in the final in Kiev on 26 May as they chase a sixth European Cup.

They are back in Premier League action on Sunday, when they travel to Chelsea.”
