Roma are chasing a 5-2 deficit from the first leg and will now be relying on the cauldron of the Olimpico to try and put some pressure on the travelling Reds. They must repeat their Barcelona heroics in the previous round, as they beat the Catalans 3-0 at home after a 4-1 away defeat in the first leg.  The Giallorossi have won 4 from 5 Champions league games at home this season, keeping a clean sheet in each of these matches. They secured a 4-1 victory over Chievo over the weekend with El Shaarawy, Dzeko and Schick all on the scoresheet. The result keeps Roma in third place level on points with Lazio. Eusebio Di Francesco's men have conceded in 8 of their last 9 league games at home.

Kevin Strootman and Diego Perotti are serious doubts for Roma after picking up knocks at Anfield. As a result, Lorenzo Pellegrini should join Radja Nainggolan and Daniele De Rossi in te middle of the park. Manager Di Francesco is likely to revert to a 4-3-3 starting system. In defense, Juan Jesus will be dropped on bench with Federico Fazio and Kostas Manolas playing as centre backs, Aleksandr Kolarov and Alessandro Florenzi retaining their berth as full backs. Up front, Edin Dzeko will spearhead the attack, probabli flanked by Stephan El Shaarawy and Patrick Schick. The likes of Gregoire Defrel and Rick Karsdorp remain sidelined.

After a thrilling 5-2 success over Roma last week, Liverpool are now unbeaten in 15 Champions League fixtures and have scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine matches in the tournament. In the previous round they knocked Man City out with a 5-1 aggregate scoreline, winning both legs (3-0 at home, 2-1 at Etihad). Their counter attacks have already proven to be lethal when their opponents need to overcome a deficit. Anyway, the Reds struggled to find a way past Stoke City at Anfield having drawn 0-0 last weekend. That was their second draw in a row having recorded a stalemate at West Brom a week before.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain suffered a season-ending injury in the first leg and is expected to be replaced in midfield by Georginio Wijnaldum. With Emre Can and Adam Lallana still out through injury, James Milner and Jordan Henderson will retain their starting berth in the middle of the park. Andrew Robertson should come back in at left back, with Trent Alexander-Arnold shaking off a knock to start on the other flank, leaving Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren in the heart of the backline. Joel Matip is a long-term injury. Up front, Sadio Mane should come back to start alongside Roberto Firmino and Salah in a three-man forward line.


Roma (4-3-3): Alisson; Kolarov, Manolas, Fazio, Florenzi; Pellegrini, De Rossi, Nainggolan; Schick, El Shaarawy, Dzeko

Liverpool (4-3-3): Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Henderson, Milner; Manè, Salah, Firmino
