Liverpool have a chance to make a Champions League final for the first time since 2007.
After a superb 5-2 semi-final first leg win over Roma, Jurgen Klopp’s side must now finish the job in Italy.
While the odds are stacked in the Reds’ favour, the Serie A side have shown they’re more than capable of producing comebacks after sensationally beating Barcelona in the previous round.
To add to Liverpool’s list of potential concerns, Roma have yet to concede a goal at home in the Champions League this season.
Liverpool trained in Roma’s stadium, the Stadio Olimpico, on Tuesday evening ahead of the fixture, here are six things we noticed.
All by myself…
Jurgen Klopp will take charge of his first game without Zeljko Buvac after Liverpool’s assistant manager temporarily left his role due to personal reasons.
Buvac had been at Klopp’s side for 17 years but after reports of a dispute the pair are now seperated.
The Reds boss will have to put all that to one side and focus on the job at hand on Tuesday night.
Filling Buvac’s void
Another needing to focus on the task at hand is Peter Krawietz, Liverpool’s number three.
With Buvac absent, ‘The Eye’ – as Klopp calls him – will need to fill the void left by his former colleague.
What a game to start.
This is it, fellas
Liverpool have arrived in Rome, they’re in the Stadio Olimpico and they’re just 24 hours away from playing the second leg. This is it.
Klopp is snapped giving his men a speech prior to training, probably to calm a few nerves.
A hero returns
Less than a year after leaving Roma, Salah has returned.
The Egyptian spent two seasons at Roma, scoring 34 goals in 83 appearances, before sealing a £37million move to Anfield.
Can he follow up his two goals in the first leg?
No smiles round here
After seeing what Roma did to Barcelona in the previous round Liverpool know they can’t afford to be complacent.
Roberto Firmino, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson cut serious figures during the training session.
Fans can expect a professional performance on Wednesday.
"Don’t worry, I’ll assist you"
James Milner broke the Champions League record last week for most assists in a single campaign, eclipsing Wayne Rooney’s tally from the 2013/14 season.
The 32-year-old will no doubt be looking to extend his record and help lead Liverpool into the final.
