Roma vs Liverpool: Team news, injuries, possible lineups

Eusebio di Francesco’s AS Roma will today clash with Liverpool at Stadio Olimpico in the Champions League second leg semi-final tie.

Francesco’s men heads into this clash trailing 5-2 to the Reds from the first leg encounter last week at Anfield.

The defeat at Anfield saw Roma fall to their fourth straight loss in away matches in the Champions League, and they will now be relying on the cauldron of the Olimpico to try to put some pressure on the travelling Reds.

The Giallorossi, who are currently occupying the fourth position in the Serie A league table, over the weekend beat Chievo 4-1 in the Italian topflight league.

Di Francesco has already insisted that Perotti is likely to miss two weeks of football with another injury issue.

Kevin Strootman has also been listed as doubtful for Wednesday’s game in Rome.

Dzeko is expected to continue in attack for the Italian club and Schick could join him later in the game.

Kostas Manolas, Cengiz Under and Alessandro Florenzi were rested at the weekend against Chievo and should all return against Liverpool.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will be heading to a venue where Roma have not conceded a goal in five Champions League games this season.

Roma have already beaten the likes of Barcelona, Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk at home in the competition across the group and knockout stages.
