This is it.

Get set for one heck of an encounter in the Italian capital as Liverpool aim to reach the UEFA Champions League final where Real Madrid await either Jurgen Klopp‘s men or AS Roma.

[ LIVE: Roma v. Liverpool ]

Roma host Liverpool in the second leg of their UCL semifinal on Wednesday (kick off, 2:45 p.m. ET).

Liverpool have a 5-2 lead from the first leg of their UCL semifinals at Anfield but with Roma needing a 3-0 win to advance (just as they did in dramatic fashion in the quarterfinals against Barcelona in the second leg at home) expect a raucous atmosphere in the Stadio Olimpico as home fans hope for another miracle comeback.

Mohamed Salah will be hoping to well and truly bury his former club but Liverpool will be wary of the threat of Roma as they conceded two late goals at Anfield after leading 5-0 and Roma could’ve easily scored more.
