Liverpool qualified tonight base on their phenomenal performance in the First leg of the UEFA Champions league. These are three things we learnt ;

1 . Roma’s UCL home advantage still stands; Roma has turned Stadio Olimpico into a fortress in the UCL this season. They have allowed just 2 goals at home this season with both goals coming against Liverpool. Chelsea, Barcelona and now Liverpool have tasted defeat here.

2. Mo Salah

Mohamad Salah has been the main catalyst spicing up Liverpool’s attack with the winger scoring a whooping 43 goals in all competition this season. A less than impressive performance against Roma at Stadio Olimpico meant Liverpool were less dangerous when they break on the counter. Mane might have scored the first goal and forced a save that led to the second but he and Firmino couldn’t provide the much needed spark as expected.

3. Poor Defensive setups :

Both Liverpool and Roma has been poor defensively . The Roma defense was obviously too slow in response. Kostas Manolas and Federico Fazio were exploited defensively. The Liverpool defense was error ridden evwm Virgil van Dijk didn’t help matters as Edin Dzeko got the better of him. Liverpool were literary saved by the whistle.

Congratulations to Liverpool on the qualification of UEFA champions League final on Kyiev.
