KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Despite concerns over security in the buildup to Liverpool's visit to Rome the semi-final passed off relatively trouble-free.

Not when no one could have imagined that Mohamed Salah would develop into a scorer to rival Lionel Messi.

"You can not be more experienced in the competition than Real Madrid".

If the Reds do win it would end a six-year trophy drought and be their first piece of silverware under Klopp's management, having lost the finals of the League Cup and Europa League in 2016.

But it wasn't enough, and Liverpool's dominant display - and 5-2 result - from the first leg saw them progress to the final of Europe's elite competition. "We will go there with confidence".

The final is scheduled for May 26 in Ukraine. Dortmund very almost surrendered their advantage in 2013, eventually prevailing 4-3 on aggregate.

"We scored one and each counter-attack was really risky but we didn't use them".

Roma was left feeling aggrieved about two penalty decisions that weren't given. But Liverpool certainly didn't steal anything from us. Across the two semi-finals there were 20 goals. But, Eusebio Di Francesco's men were not going to give up easily. "There should be more matches like these". Ditched by Chelsea after struggling in his first spell in English football, Salah has been reborn under Klopp since joining from Roma for 34 million pounds ($46 million) past year.

"What a performance, what a comeback". We need to deliver and the good news is we have now a real group of players. "So we needed luck".

"I knew before that Seville is one of the most hard places to go".

Conte the anti-Klopp as coaching styles collide

'All credit to the managers for making this one of the most unforgettable Champions League campaigns'.

Liverpool will again leave Rome victorious after winning the European title twice, in 1977 and 1984, at the Stadio Olimpico.

You always have great faith with Jurgen's side, and was anybody surprised that Liverpool scored first?

Nainggolan's late defiance raged against the inevitable - ripping a low drive in off the post before thrashing in a spot-kick after Liverpool substitute Ragnar Klavan was adjudged to have handled - although it was the Belgian's earlier woe that put Liverpool on the road to Kiev despite their first loss in this season's competition.

Dejan Lovren tried to clear a ball into the area but smashed his effort straight into the face of Milner and it ricocheted past Karius.

"The only thing Liverpool know really is to go that way (forward)".

Inside the opening 30 seconds, Virgil van Dijk headed away an awkward cross by Stephan El Shaarawy as Edin Dzeko lurked menacingly behind him. One visiting fan was arrested for a public order offence and the most serious problem on the night was access to the stadium for the 5,000 Liverpool supporters.

Pallotta echoed Roma sporting director Monchi who immediately after the game demanded that VAR "must" be brought into the Champions League after "incredible" errors.

That's as much down to the misfits in defence, the workhorses in midfield and the transfer gambles littered across the squad as it is the prolific scoring of attacker Mohamed Salah, another of Klopp's success stories with a career-high 43 goals for the season from the right wing.
