Liverpool-Roma semi sets new goals marker
Liverpool and Roma broke a 20-year goals record in the Champions League semi-final.
Roma could not pull off a miracle comeback to match their quarter-final victory over Barcelona, but their last-four defeat to Liverpool did set a new Champions League record.
The Serie A club's 4-2 win at the Stadio Olimpico was not enough to overturn Liverpool's first-leg advantage, the Reds progressing 7-6 on aggregate.
But the scoreline smashed the record for the total number of goals scored in a Champions League semi-final.
The previous marker of 10 had stood for 20 years, with Juventus' 6-4 win against Monaco the existing best for goals scored, but the 13 netted across two legs in Liverpool and Rome will take some beating.
