Liverpool Drowns AS. Roma In England

Liverpool made Champions League history in their 5-2 rout of Roma on Tuesday.

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino each scored twice, with Sadio Mane also finding the net as the Reds ran rampant over the Serie A side, leaving the Anfield outfit with three players on eight or more goals in the competition.

It marks the first time any club has had three players reach that mark in a single Champions League campaign, with Salah’s fantastic double helping him set a Liverpool record along the way.

A 5-0 scoreline early in the second half had the Reds on the verge of another record. That mark would have been the largest margin of victory in a single Champions League semi-final match, topping Bayern Munich’s beating of Barcelona in 2013, and Real Madrid’s 4-0 thumping of Bayern a year later.

But Roma had other plans and stormed back with two goals of their own, leaving Liverpool with a three-goal advantage heading into the second leg in Rome.

Roma famously overcame a similar deficit to reach the semi-final stage, having take down Lionel Messi and Barcelona after falling 4-1 to the Catalans in the first leg in Spain.

A 3-0 result in Rome gave the Italians all they needed to reach this stage, and Liverpool will be wary, knowing that a similar result next week would see Roma pull off another stunning comeback.
