Five-time European champions Liverpool have been drawn against Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The Reds avoided back-to-back winners Real Madrid, who will instead take on fellow heavyweights Bayern Munich for a place in the final.

Liverpool cruised to a 5-1 aggregate victory over domestic rivals Manchester City in the previous round, while Roma stunned Barcelona with a 3-0 win in the second leg.
