Henderson Wary Of Barcelona Repeat
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has told Liverpool not to follow in Barcelona’s footsteps and allow Roma to complete a second-leg comeback in their Champions League tie.
Jurgen Klopp’s side looked to be cruising into the semi-finals after racing into a 5-0 lead at Anfield inside 68 minutes, with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino netting twice and Sadio Mane also on the scoresheet.
But Roma gave themselves hope ahead of the return fixture, with Edin Dzeko’s strike and a Diego Perotti penalty – both of which came in the final nine minutes – ensuring the match ended at 5-2.
The result means Eusebio Di Francesco’s side will reach the final if they can repeat the performance against Barca in the quarter-final second leg, when they overturned a 4-1 first-leg loss with a 3-0 victory in the return.
