Liverpool – Liverpool win 5-2 over AS Roma at Anfield Stadium on Tuesday (4/24/2018) or Wednesday morning GMT in the Champions League semi-final first leg. Unfortunately, the brilliant performance of The Reds, nicknamed Liverpool, only lasted for 80 minutes.
Up to 80 minutes of matches, Liverpool scored five goals through Mohamed Salah (two goals), Roberto Firmino (two goals), and Sadio Mane. But in the last 10 minutes, AS Roma managed to rip Liverpool’s goal.
Not only once, AS Roma managed to break the Liverpool goalkeeper twice through Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti penalty execution. After the game, Roma captain Daniele De Rossi said his team lost to the ancient game of the Reds, the nickname of Liverpool.
“Liverpool are very strong, they did very well, but we played well for 20-25 minutes early,” De Rossi said, quoted by Football Italia.
“They do a long ball continuously, from all areas of the field, it’s hard to close the space when players are faster than you,” Liverpool managed to get past the defense easily with that old tactic we can not intercept their tactics.
