Liverpool triumphed in a thrilling contest with Roma, while Real Madrid came from behind against Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.
As with so many games for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, the first leg outing at Anfield was defined by the influence of Mohamed Salah – who scored twice in the first half of a sublime attacking display. Another brace from Roberto Firmino, plus a Sadio Mane goal appeared to have settled the tie by the 67th minute, however, some crucial defensive lapses allowed Roma to claw two goals back of their own, keeping some slim hope alive of a comeback on their home turf.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich were able to find an early breakthrough in a heavyweight clash with Real Madrid when Joshua Kimmich hit the net just before the half hour, yet the reigning competition champions equalised through Marcelo soon after. Marco Asensio would record another crucial away goal for Madrid following half-time.
