Roma warm up for Liverpool clash with win big enough to make UCL final

Roma warmed up for their Champions League second leg with Liverpool by hammering Chievo 4-1 in Serie A.

The Giallorossi will hope to repeat their heroics against Barcelona in the last round by overturning a 5-2 semi-final first-leg deficit against Jurgen Klopp’s men on Wednesday and found some form on home soil.

They were woeful at Anfield, but fared much better in their domestic league, winning thanks to goals from Patrik Schick, Eden Dzeko (2) and Stephan El Shaarawy.

Schick opened the scoring in the ninth minute when he swept home Dzeko’s cross from the left and then the former Manchester City striker got on the scoresheet five minutes before the break by poking home Aleksandar Kolarov’s centre.

Roma were reduced to 10 men when Juan Jesus was dismissed for a professional foul, but Roberto Inglese missed the resulting penalty.

El Shaarawy made the game safe with a finish into the bottom corner before Dzeko’s second concluded the rout, with Inglese atoning for his earlier miss with a consolation in injury time.
