The Champions League semifinal field is set. Liverpool and Roma will square off on the pitch with a spot in the final on the line. Liverpool's attack has been on point the entire season and will carry them to the final round. But Roma came back from a 4-1 aggregate after the first game of the quarterfinal to defeat mighty Barcelona. Many think the team will ride that wave of magic to the final. What do you think? ⚽

Liverpool may not catch up to Manchester City in the Premier League, but the team may be able to claim a champions league title after knocking off the table toppers in the quarterfinal round. Liverpool has averaged 3.3 goals for the tournament phase and is clicking on all cylinders offensively. Roma fought its way back to advance, but won't be able to stop the Liverpool attack.

Momentum is a real thing in sports and Roma has all of it. The Italian squad found itself down 4-1 after the first leg against Barcelona in the quarterfinal. But the team came back with a flourish, scoring three straight goals to pull even with their opposition and advance to the semifinal with the away goal tiebreaker. Roma pulled a soccer miracle. 

If Roma could make that happen, there is no way Edin Džeko, Radja Nainggolan or Alessandro Florenzi will let this team falter. Liverpool won't know what hit them.
