Champions League semi-final draw


Champions League semi-final draw

Liverpool's 3/1 backing places them third most favorable in the UCL while AS Roma are the Champions League underdogs at 10/1.

It's also likely Liverpool would prefer to meet Roma in the next round and avoid the possibility meeting either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. One of the perennial questions asked about Bayern, though, is whether they are stymied by a lack of real competition in their domestic league. The Bundesliga champions are in the last four, after a 2-1 aggregate win over Sevilla.

Still, they have momentum and a capacity to unsettle teams like Manchester City who are used to dominating games in terms of possession.

Pep Guardiola's team were blown away at Anfield, losing 3-0, before losing 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

What time does the Champions League draw start at?

Who is in the Champions League semi-final?

Having seen some of Real Madrid's defending in his absence, Zinedine Zidane's side will be praying that is not the case. They made hard work of their quarter-final squandering a 3-0 first leg lead to Juventus lead before Ronaldo kept his cool to score an injury-time penalty to seal a 4-3 aggregate win.

However, there was late drama in the second leg of the tie as Madrid were awarded a penalty and Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to finally ensure that his side goes through to the last four after Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon got sent off by referee Michael Oliver.
