If Liverpool go on to win the Champions League by beating Real Madrid on Saturday evening, their journey to a sixth European Cup will be retold again and again and again.

There have been some very memorable evenings, starting with the 7-0 wins against Maribor and Spartak Moscow in the group stages.

Liverpool then went to Porto and won 5-0 before outclassing Manchester City over two legs.

But the semi-final tie against Roma was a rollercoaster ride.

The Reds were 5-0 up in the first leg at Anfield and were cruising to the final when Roma scored two late goals.

It would still require a miracle for Roma to overcome a 5-2 deficit but they gave it their best shot, eventually losing 7-6 on aggregate.

Liverpool were worthy winners - they were the better of the two teams across both legs - but Roma played their part in what was an absorbing tie.

If you’re on Twitter and you’re not following Roma’s English account, you really should be.

Roma posted a picture of Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, looking glum as she appeared at the wedding of Harry and Meghan Markle last weekend.

Millions around the world watched on as and Davy was left to reflect on what could have been.

And millions around the world will watch Liverpool against Real Madrid as Roma are left to reflect on what could have been.

Roma may not be in Kiev just at least they are winning on Twitter.

Liverpool, despite scoring 40 goals in the competition this season, will enter the tie as slight underdogs.

Los Blancos have looked vulnerable at times this season, and they could only managed a third-place finish in La Liga, but the bookmakers’ clearly value their experience.

Zinedine Zidane is hoping to lead his team to a third-straight Champions League win, which would truly be an achievement.

Any team that includes Cristiano Ronaldo should be feared.

But Liverpool have their own weapon in Mohamed Salah.

What a match-up we have in store.
