This new week will feature the second leg of the UCL semi-finals. All four teams (AS Roma, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Real Madrid) are one game away from featuring in the final which is to be played Kyiv, Ukraine.
As things stand, Liverpool and Real Madrid are favorites to go through because of their first leg advantage. While Liverpool won 5-2 at home, Real Madrid registered an away win over the Bavarians. But is this enough to make these two teams qualify? Which two teams do you think will feature in the final?
AS Roma vs. Liverpool
The Italians scored the last two goals of their game in Anfield in the last 20 minutes of the game. By this time, their chief tormentor, Mohamed Salah, had been substituted. The Egyptian was responsible for 4 of the 5 goals Liverpool scored on the night.
And he’s the man that De Rossi and co. have to stop if they’re to have any chance of making it through to the final. Another thing that they can do is to make the most of their home record in the UCL this season.
The Italian outfit has not conceded a goal in any of their UCL home matches this season. After playing 5 games at the Stadio Olimpico this season, the Romans have won 4 and drawn once. They have let in 8 goals while playing UCL games in that stadium this season and they have conceded 0 goals.

Liverpool, on the other hand, remains undefeated in the UCL this season. They’re the highest scoring side in the competition and will be more than a handful for AS Roma.
Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich, despite their hard work in the first leg and ravaged by a long injury list, succumbed to a 2-1 first leg defeat at the hands of Zinedine Zidane’s men. It was not the best game Real has played this year but then again they got themselves a win.
With the way they’ve been playing UCL games this season, the question is, “Can they win a third UCL title in a row?” Does Jupp Heynckes men have what it takes to stop this seemingly unstoppable force? We will only be able to find out after Wednesday’s clash.

The last time Real Madrid played a Champions League tie at home, they suffered defeat at the hands of Juventus, but still qualified. Bayern Munich will be looking to follow in the footsteps of the Old Lady and make the most of the next 90 minutes against the Los Blancos.
But they will have to right some wrongs, statistically. The last two times Bayern played Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, both games ended in loses for them (4-2, 1-0). Can they turn it around this time around?
