Liverpool face one of the biggest games in the clubs recent history on Tuesday evening as they take on Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie.

The Reds put on two spectacular displays in the quarter-final to beat Manchester City and make it into the final four of the competition.

However, Roma also upset the odds in stunning style as they beat Barcelona in the second leg of their quarter-final to surge into the semis.

The two sides last met in the 2001/02 Champions League when Jari Litmanen and Emile Heskey goals gave the Reds a 2-0 win at Anfield.
