Liverpool will take on AS Roma in the semi-final of the Champions League.
With Bayern Munich and reigning champions Real Madrid the other names in the draw, Jurgen Klopp will have identified the Italians as the team to face in the final four.
Of course, Liverpool will not take Roma lightly. This is a team who just came from 4-1 behind to knock Barcelona out of the quarter-final.
But still, Liverpool fans will be very optimistic heading into the tie.
The first leg will be played at Anfield on April 24 or 25, while the return fixture will be staged at the Stadio Olimpico on either May 1 or 2.
One exciting subplot surrounding the tie is, of course, the return of Mohamed Salah to Roma.
Liverpool signed the Egyptian from the Italians for £34.3 million last summer and he’s since gone on to enjoy a remarkable debut season on Merseyside.
Roma have tweeted Mo Salah
His goal in Tuesday’s 2-1 victory against Manchester City was his 39th in all competitions this season - it’s been a campaign to remember for the 25-year-old.
And now he gets to return to his former club.
Roma sent a class message to Salah on Twitter after the draw, writing: “We’ll be opponents for 180 minutes, but whatever happens we’ll remain friends for life. Looking forward to seeing you again, @22mosalah! 👋”.
Salah responded: “100%”.
Liverpool fans love the tweet
Despite the fact that they will now battle it out for a place in the Champions League final, Roma have earned the respect of Liverpool supporters following their tweet to Salah.
These feelings could go out of the window when the first leg kicks off, though.
Playing in such an important fixture will only open the eyes of Europe’s big boys to Salah.
Imagine if he goes on to lead the Reds to their first Champions League trophy since 2005. Real Madrid and co. could all express an interest.
However, Klopp fully believes that the forward’s future lies at Anfield.
"I know that Mo feels very comfortable here, and he knows that our style of play suits him very well, so I am not worried about a transfer,” Klopp told Bild this week.
