The referee appointed to Liverpool’s clash with AS Roma on Tuesday has
got everyone talking…
Damir Skomina of Slovenia will take charge of the clash, with
Liverpool losing every match we’ve ever played when he’s on the
The Reds fell to defeats against Fiorentina in 2009, Besiktas in 2015
and Villarreal in 2016, which was under Jurgen Klopp’s guidance.
Having said that, our Italian opponents Roma have also never won with
Skomina as ref either!
While Liverpool are huge favourites to advance to the Champions League
final after trouncing Roma 5-2 at Anfield in the first leg of their
semifinal, they are still underdogs to win the second leg and the
tournament, as a whole. Betting on Liverpool at +160 to beat Roma in
Italy is reasonable, since they looked great in their away matches
during the Round of 16 (5-0 vs Port) and quarters (2-1 vs Man City).
If Liverpool’s odds (+150) to win the UCL title are appealing, be sure

13.4% of sites vetted got approval. Real Madrid will likely be waiting
in the finals. Cristiano Ronaldo and company will not only have
experience on their side, but look to be in absolute top form after
beating Bayern Munich 2-1 in Germany this week.
Sadio Mane will hopefully return to the side after missing out through
injury at the weekend.
The Senegalese will likely take the place of Danny Ings and start
alongside our breathtaking duo of Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Both the no.11 and no.9 have ten goals apiece in the Champions League
this season, which is bettered only by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Salah and Firmino were on electric form at Anfield in the first-leg,
bagging braces, but the defensive mistakes at the end means all is
still to play for in Rome.
Klopp will bring Andy Robertson, Dejan Lovren and James Milner back
into the side that drew with Stoke, hopefully adding the experience
and mettle we need at left-back, central defence and midfield.
