Liverpool nabbed a 5-2 advantage over Roma in the European Champions League semifinals, in their fief of Anfield Road, in a game in which the visitor could make up the result about the final minutes of the game.

The man of the moment in the English team, Mohamed Salah, was the author of the first two goals in the 33rd and 45th minutes, the first left-hander who was scored in the angle and the second with a subtle touch over the goalkeeper.

The English player continued in the second half, for Mané to set the 3-0 on the board in the 56th minute, and Roberto Firmino made a scoring hit with a double in the 61st and 68th minutes.

Liverpool lowered the speed a little, taking into account the little time that was left for the closing of the match, and Roma took advantage of it, which through Edin Dzeko in the minute 81 began to add.

Perotti, in minute 85 took advantage of an error in defense of Liverpool to score a shot from the penalty spot and leave the final figures, which although uphill, it is not impossible for the Italian team.

And that can be said very well by Barcelona, ​​who in the quarterfinals had a 4-1 advantage that seemed unattainable for Roma and managed to turn their luck and leave on the road to today's best team in Spain and strong candidate for the title of Europe.

The return will be on Wednesday May 2 at the Olympic Stadium, where Roma has managed to live many days of dreams.
