Liverpool host Roma in the semi-finals of UEFA Champions League 2017/18 this evening.
This first leg fixture – which takes place at Anfield – will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport, as Mo Salah faces his old club for the first time.
While this is Liverpool’s tenth appearance in the last four of the European Cup, it is the first time the English club have got this far since 2007/08, when they suffered only their second semi-final defeat.
Roma have featured in only one previous European Cup semi-final, and were victorious – only to lose to Liverpool in the final at their own Stadio Olimpico.
The most significant of the teams’ five previous meetings was the first, the 1984 European Cup final in Rome, where the Reds won 4-2 on penalties after the game finished 1-1.
Match coverage starts at 7.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming via BTSport.com and the BT Sport App.
BT Sport will also air the second semi-final match on Wednesday evening as Real Madrid travel to Bayern Munich.
Highlights of both matches will be shown on ITV from 10.45pm on Wednesday night.
