  • Man City's coach Guardiola optimistic despite reaching CL semis

The winners will face the victor of the other semi-final between Liverpool and AS Roma in the final in Kiev on 26 May.

Roma caused a famous upset against Barcelona in Tuesday's second leg quarter-final Champions League tie scoring three goals after previously succumbing to a 4-1 loss in the first leg thus securing a place in the last four of the tournament on away goals where they meet Liverpool.

The semi-finals for this season's Champions League promises much more, with surprise packages such as AS Roma and Liverpool in the mix against European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Real, who needed a dramatic late penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo to scrape past Juventus in the quarterfinals, will travel to Bayern's Allianz Arena for the first leg on April 25.

The Europa League final will be in Lyon, France on Wednesday, 16 May, with the victor guaranteed a place in next season's Champions League.

Liverpool, Champions League winners in 2005, have not faced Roma in a competitive match since March 2002.

Chelsea comeback increases Saints' fears of drop as rivals win
I didn't say we're going to score, but I believe the first goal we scored put them in a bad position . Giroud and Pedro came on right after Chelsea went 2-0 down which was the start of Chelsea's comeback.

Third-placed Lazio and fourth-placed AS Roma will do battle in the Rome Derby at the Stadio Olimpico in the Serie A on Sunday night.

Should Liverpool finally be felled in the competition there is no doubt as to who their record breaking attacker will be shouting for in the final.

"But if anybody thinks this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person - they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona".

"They obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona".

And, as you can imagine, fans of the Scouse outfit had the same reaction to the draw - that they're going to go on and win it. In the first result, 4-1 was not how the game was - it was Lionel Messi genius against a good side of Roma. I still talk to most of the players there.
