Liverpool beat Roma 5-2 in a thrilling Champions League semi-final on Tuesday night.

Mohamed Salah was at his electric best in the first leg at Anfield - and the Italians will need a miracle to progress to the final in Kiev.

However, Roma did pull off a miracle in the quarter-final against Barcelona, beating them 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico to advance on away goals.

It was an incredible 90 minutes of Champions League football on Tuesday but, sadly, the game was marred by violence ahead of kick-off.

Some Liverpool fans were attacked by a number of travelling Roma supporters near the stadium - and one Irish Liverpool fan suffered a serious head injury and is reportedly in critical condition.

Two Roma fans, aged 26 and 25, were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Jordan Henderson has posted a truly beautiful message about the 53-year-old Liverpool fan who is currently hospitalised.

Henderson's Instagram post

The Liverpool captain produced a magnificent performance against Roma - and he's showed his class on social media on Wednesday morning.

"The thoughts and prayers of all the players are with the Liverpool fan who is currently very poorly in hospital, after being badly hurt ahead of our game last night.

"He came to watch a football match and support our team - the only result that matters to us now is that he recovers and can return home to be with his family and loved ones.

"You’ll Never Walk Alone"

A classy statement from a classy captain.


Every real football fan will agree with Henderson - hopefully the injured supporter can make a full recovery.

Klopp looks ahead

Liverpool face relegation-threatened Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday before flying to Rome for the second leg.

Jurgen Klopp doesn't think Roma's two late goals at Anfield will make a big difference to next week's meeting.


"What I learned is that we can win the second game as well even when it will be different, but Roma need to score goals against us," said Klopp.

"We will fight with all we have for that result again. It is so much better than I could have expected before the game but now in the moment I feel the two goals we conceded.

"We have to work again in Rome - that is no problem.

"There would have been work for us to do if we had won 5-0 because Roma would have tried everything to strike back anyway so that is not a big difference."
