The Reds qualified for the semis earlier this week with a 5-1 aggregate victory over Manchester City in the quarter-finals.
It was a superb performance from Jurgen Klopp’s men over both legs, dominating the first to get a 3-0 victory before coming back from an early goal down to win 2-1 at the Etihad in midweek.
They were joined by Roma, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the hat for today’s draw.
And considering the quality Bayern and Madrid normally show in this competition, Roma would have been preferable for all at Anfield.
One quick look at the Twitter reaction to the draw suggests those supporters are very happy with the draw:
Liverpool Roma get in!!!!!!

Of course, Bayern and Madrid have had more success in this competition than Roma, but the Italian side did produce a miracle comeback to knock Barcelona out in the quarter finals and they can’t be taken lightly.
