AS Roma lost 4-1 against FC Barcelona in the first Champions League quarter-final. Everyone considered it impossible for AS Roma to qualify for the semi-final after that result, but on April 10th we were all proven wrong. Can AS Roma do the impossible again?
AS Roma seems to have big trouble playing on foreign ground. They lost 4-1 to FC Barcelona, and one week ago they lost 5-2 to FC Liverpool. What’s wrong with the team? But, if you look at those scores, you will quickly notice that they have the same starting point before the semi-final in Rome on May 2nd as they had before the quarter-final against FC Barcelona on April 10th. They need to score three goals, and they need to keep their own goal clean.
Winning 3-0 against FC Barcelona seemed impossible, but if they managed to do that, then AS Roma can just as well win 3-0 against FC Liverpool tomorrow. The truth is, it seems easier to beat Liverpool 3-0 than it is to beat FC Barcelona 3-0. But, is AS Roma capable of performing such a miracle once again? I doubt it, but I kind of hope they will.
Liverpool is a fresh team, and I like the way Jurgen Klopp work with the team. I also know that Liverpool has millions of fans worldwide, all eager for their favorite team to qualify for the Champions League final. Based on the number of fans, AS Roma come as big outsiders to this match. But, we have seen it before that AS Roma can perform miracles in Rome, so maybe they will do it again.
Has any of the teams got a chance against Bayern München or Real Madrid?
Anything can happen in football, but no matter which team will win, AS Roma or Liverpool, I doubt they will have any chance against Real Madrid or Bayern München in the Champions League final. Those teams have proved to play amazing football in important matches, and I fear that they will mock any team trying to take their Champions League trophy from them.
What would then my dream Champions League final look like? I do hope for a miracle from Bayern München in Madrid tonight, but I do not care if they will play against Liverpool or AS Roma. May the best team win!
