Liverpool vs Roma

To many, this fixture represent the best matchup Liverpool could get in the draws but for me, the reverse was the case as I think Liverpool play the underdog cards perfectly than playing the favorites tag. This would require them to take the initiative and attack Roma which could play well into the hands of the Italians. Salah has been in particularly good form and they will look up to him for inspiration especially when things are not going quite right and boy has he delivered with 41 goals this season and just recently claimed the PFA player of the year award ahead of Kevin De Bruyne. The attacking trio of Mane, Firmino and Salah should start in a 4-3-3 formation for the hosts.

Roma pulled off a remarkable comeback for the ages with a 3-0 win against Barcelona in a complete performance at he back and in attack. The underdog tag here makes this game a perfect opportunity for the Romans to sit back and hit on the counter, and with a big lad as Dzeko in attack, he will hold he ball well for players like Under to run into space. They have been playing well recently and they should be confident of al least getting a goal here to take back to Rome ahead of the return leg.

Liverpool are 1.50 favorites for the win, but I think the Romans have been immensely underestimated. They have every chance of getting a result and with a good defense line, Liverpool light struggle to break them down if their three front players are not afforded time and space on the ball as shown in both Liverpool games against Manchester United. Roma will look to that game as a blueprint and the Italians can execute that plan perfectly. I expect an evenly matched game with the likely result being a full time draw ahead of the second leg.
