Tell that to Barcelona

I think the gaps Roma will leave at the back looking for goals will suit Liverpool's counter attacking style though. Barcelona played their possesion based, short passing model against Roma and got unstuck. Defended like idiots at set pieces too. As seen last night Liverpool killed Roma over the top with long balls to Mane and Salah and I can't see it being different in Rome.

Fair. It was a brainless tactical display from Roma last night. They were getting slaughtered by playing a high defensive line but their manager just persisted with it. Weird.

It was bizarre. At 2-0 down surely you bring on an extra defender or CDM to protect and hopefully nick a goal from a set play or something? Their centre backs are fairly decent but have no pace so why expose them to the quickest forward line in world football?

Apparently the 5th time Liverpool have led 3-0 or better at half-time in the CL this season.

That was wonderful to watch. After the first 20-25 minutes, you would never had guessed the final score. Roma had begun to silence the crowd and should have been one up through Kolarov, but once Liverpool sussed bypassing the midfield press with three at the back :shock: it was just one-way traffic. Absolutely no way will Roma prevent Salah/Firmino/Mane from scoring next week.

And Roma should definitely have had at least one pen

The final better not be 0-0!

Probably will be but has there been two more porus defenses in the CL FInal?

Going to be a case of which teams attacking players are most on form on the night. Gut says Liverpool will nick it, 3-2 - so lump on Madrid.

It's usually not too bad until Klopp puts on an extra defender to help keep things tight :lol:

Perhaps if he took a defender off and put another attacker on they'd not concede at all.

I reckon if they played 0-4-6 they would win the league.

It looks like congratulations are in order for Liverpool Football Club, who appear to have wrapped up their sixth Champions League title without even having to play the final.

As per the updated tournament fixture list on UEFA's official website, the Reds have seemingly been given a goodbye against Real Madrid in the final to be automatically crowned champions of Europe once again.

Up above the semifinal results at the very top of the page, UEFA have erroneously declared Jurgen Klopp's side to be overall winners of the 2017-18 competition.

Which, in fairness, seems a little harsh on Real. After all, were they really that unconvincing over two legs against Bayern Munich in the previous round?

All in all, it's just a bit of a shame that we won't be getting a Champions League final this year.

We were really quite looking forward to watching it. :lol: :lol: :lol:
