Liverpool players to face Real

Liverpool will participate in their eighth European Cup final later this month after emerging victors of their semifinal tie with Roma 7-6 on aggregate.

For Klopp, getting his hands on the Champions League trophy would be concrete proof his Red revolution has been worth all the blood, sweat and tears.

Wijnaldum was called up to replace Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, who was ruled out with a serious knee injury sustained in the semi-final first leg, and he rose to the challenge with a composed display capped by Liverpool's vital second goal. Crucially, Klopp's decision to reinvest the cash from Philippe Coutinho's transfer to Barcelona on powerful center-back Virgil van Dijk has added much-needed solidity to Liverpool's defense.

"So if you talk about experience, they are experienced and we are not".

The second leg in Rome was played amid heightened security after a Liverpool fan was attacked by Roma supporters prior to the first leg at Anfield last week. "I think they're on the verge of something really good". In the first half we did well and scored some good goals.

"It is probably the biggest test we could have had, the biggest I've had as a player", the midfielder admitted.

Liverpool did the job in Rome by opening the scoring early, with Sadio Mane finding the net after just nine minutes.

The Merseyside outfit will now have their sights firmly set on beating Real Madrid to win the club's sixth Champions League trophy. In fact, it is Liverpool that seem like the better team and here are 5 reasons why... He told BT Sport: "Dzeko and I didn't realise Alexander-Arnold handled the ball so it can happen that the referee didn't see it".

Roma came within just one goal of forcing extra time at the Stadio Olimpico thanks to Radja Nainggolan's late brace but it was too little too late for the hosts, who were left aggrieved with the officials.

"And when you're playing against Real Madrid and you try to do that all the time, you're going to give yourself some problems".

While Henderson admits they have to hold onto leads better in the closing stages of games, he admits he's simply delighted to be in the final where Liverpool will face off against Real Madrid for the right to be European champions. "We have to suffer at times". "There are players who never score".

Prediction: Liverpool's run have been impressive considering some of their struggles in the Premier League the past two seasons.
