Liverpool appear poised to advance to their first UEFA Champions League Final since 2007, but comeback kids AS Roma still believe they have a chance to overcome a three-goal deficit.
Liverpool take a 5-2 aggregate lead into the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal against AS Roma, and appear in good position to cruise into their first Champions League Final since 2007. But Roma already have a three-goal comeback to their credit, against Barcelona in the quarterfinals, and hope to repeat the feat in a match that will live stream from Rome on Wednesday.
In their domination of Roma at Anfield two weeks ago, Liverpool became only the second team ever to put five past the keeper in a Champions League semifinal match, behind a pair of goals from Premier League scoring leader Mo Salah. But Roma pulled two back late in the contest, giving themselves life as they headed home for the second leg match.
In the quarterfinal, AS Roma headed into the second leg against Barcelona trailing 4-1 only to stun the La Liga champions with a 3-0 drubbing and advance on away goals.

With their two away goals in hand, either a 3-0 or 4-1 victory sends AS Roma through to the final. But if Liverpool scores twice, Roma would need to win the second leg game by four goals — in other words, they would need to score a whopping six times — to book a date in the final.
AS Roma has never appeared in a final since the European club championship adopted the Champions League format in 1992. Before that, Roma has appeared in the final only once, in 1984, when they lost on penalties — to Liverpool.
The winner of the semifinal heads to Kiev, Ukraine, for the May 26 final where they will face Real Madrid, who secured a spot in their third consecutive Champions League final with a 4-3 aggregate win over Bayern Munich. Real Madrid will be going for their historic third consecutive title, a feat no team has yet accomplished in 27 seasons of the Champions League era. Liverpool, should the Reds hold on to advance, would be seeking their first title since 2005.
