Liverpool hero Riise excited with Roma draw: I'm so freaking happy

Liverpool hero Riise excited with Roma draw: I'm so freaking happy”

In Friday's draw, the Italian side were duly paired with the Premier League club, and because Roma were drawn out second, they will play the second leg at home on May 2.

Grobbelaar will forever be remembered for play-acting during the penalty shoot out against the same Italian opposition as he turned his legs to jelly on his goal-line.

Football fans are claiming the Champions League semi-final draw was rigged after Roma allegedly advertised tickets for a match with Liverpool before the teams were paired together.

The Spaniards' defence constantly thwarted Robert Lewandowski, who was unable to add to his 35 goals this season, although Bayern had twice as many shots on goal.

Roma produced one of the greatest European comebacks - recovering from a 4-1 first leg deficit to eliminate Barcelona on Tuesday with a stunning 3-0 success in the second leg.

"End of the day I'm freaking happy for both of my clubs reaching the semis and now one of them will be in the final".

"We're reaping the rewards of all the hard work we've done", Di Francesco told UEFA's official website.

Both return games will be played the following week.

"Real Madrid-Juventus? Goalkeepers are always right". The Ukrainian city's mayor, former world heavyweight boxing champion Vitali Klitschko, was at UEFA headquarters on Friday for the draw. I still talk to most of the players there.

Robben then cut back inside with a trademark run that resulted in James' shot being comfortably saved by Soria, as Bayern's frustration at their inability to put Sevilla to bed grew. This will be their first Champions League semi-final since 2008, when they lost to Chelsea. The competition's top-scoring team added five goals to their tally by beating favoured Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

"It's worth more than three points, a place in the Champions League and the history around it", said Di Francesco, whose side won 2-1 in the last Serie A meeting last November.

Tempers flared late on when Correa was dismissed for clattering Martinez just before the final whistle.
