Roma are still in this tie. They haven't conceded at home in the Champions League, so there's hope. Stopping Liverpool from scoring will take something. After all, they just put five past the Italians! Lest we forget, they're the only side unbeaten, so put your predictions away in a trash can and just wait for another enthralling tie between the two sides. 

This is Amit Mishra and boy it was a pleasure bringing the game to you. Until next time, see you when I see you!
...
Peeeep peeeeeeeeeep peeeeeeeeeeeeeeep! You don't get games like these too often! If you missed that, then I'd suggest going undercover and searching for the game video because boy, it was one helluva night! Seven damn goals!
...
94' Freekick to Roma. Last chance for the away side...but it's in their own half...
...
93' The edginess around Anfield is palpable. TAA makes a run on the right and calms the nerves as Liverpool have it where they want it to be.  
...
93' Substitution for Liverpool

Klavan is ON
Firmino is OFF
...
92' Florenzi tries to whip a cross in but it's too wayward and Karius collects it safely! Klavan is preparing to come on for the hosts...
...
Four minutes to be added on. Four minutes to hold on for the hosts and four minutes to conjure something incredible for Roma!
...
90' Nainggolan with a shot and it's a corner! Surely not another?!?!
...
89' Liverpool break but the Roma defence manage to clear it well this time. This is a mad game and end to end all of a sudden after a period of dull 15 odd minutes. 
...
88' Fazio is booked for protesting too much...
...
87' Roma with another chance! Dzeko's cross finds Perotti but the angle is just to narrow and Liverpool get a goalkick! The away end is roaring now! Roma believe! 
...
86' Perotti scores! Roma are back in it! Wow. This is some game! Liverpool are in self destruction mode here. 
...
85' PENALTY! Milner penalised for the handball! ROMA, what a chance!
...
84' Dzeko and Perotti neatly combine but the latter's shot is too weak to test Karius. Another away goal would make matters interesting here...
...
82' The goal has woken Liverpool up as they attack immediately and win a corner. Wijnaldum should have tapped it in but he completely misses Robertson's cross. 
...
Route one from Roma as a cross finds Dzeko and the Bosnian calmly controls it with his chest and slots it past Karius. A big 10 minutes here! 
...
81' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! EDIN DZEKO!
...
79' Roma are seeing a lot of the ball here but Liverpool are showing they can defend deep when needed as well. They can't afford to be too callous here, however.
...
...
77' The game has slowed down a lot here. Liverpool are happy with the goals they have and Roma are labouring to find that one ray of light - the away goal. 
...
...
76' Danny Ings is involved straight away and like Salah the man he replaced. he finds space on the right. He's too slow in the end and the chance if past him. 
...
No hat-trick for the Egyptian but what a performance! A good round of applause, including Ian Rush and Kenny Dalglish. Special performance. 
...
75' Substitution for Liverpool

Salah is OFF
Ings is ON
...
74' Lovren is booked for a foul.
...
73' GOOD CHANCE FOR SCHICK! A sweet cross by Perotti and Schick met it well. Karius however got down well and saved it. 
...
72' Liverpool have taken the foot off the gas here as Roma are seeing a lot of the ball now. They need to make it count and pinch a goal somehow here...
...
71' Schick nearly scores a goal he had no idea about. Lovren was callous and his clearance came off the forward nut luckily is out for a goalkick. 
...
70' Roma are throwing men forward now. Jeez, I don't want to be biased, but just how stupid is that? This could end up becoming a cricket score. They lost 7-1 to United. Liverpool could just beat that!
...
Straight from the corner. Last time it was Manolas who showed it all against Barcelona to win the header. This time, Firmino does the same thing. Wanted it more and gets the goal.
...
68' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! FIRMINO WITH HIS SECOND!
...
67' Seems like Roma have gone with the attacking changes as they desperately need an away goal. A flat-back four now. the more Roma try to attack, the more they'll get exposed. To be fair, it can't get any worse!
...
66' Substitutions for Roma

De Rossi is OFF
Gonalons is ON

Jesus is OFF
Perotti is ON
...
65' Firmino is through on goal hut his pass is, this time, intercepted by Jesus. Roma prepare a substitution...
...
63' Someone tell the Liverpool team that they don't need to score more. But will they listen? They've been at their free flowing best and are passing it around. This is champagne football at its finest. 
...
I'm not going to describe the goal. Why? It was a carbon copy of the third. The space remained for Salah to run and pick a pass, and the defence was clueless as to what to do as Firmino ghosted in behind to tap it in like Mane. Surely, no way back for the Romans?
...
61' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! FIRMINO WITH THE TAP IN! WOW.
...
60' Liverpool with another chance! Mane tried to shoot but the shot was blocked by the Roma defence. The hosts quickly win the second ball as Henderson and TAA press the air out of the Roma midfield. Incredible scenes... 
...
58' Schick with a half chance! Kolarov made a darting run on the left and Schick tried to flick his pass into the net. Too far and too wide. Boy, Roma need an away goal now...
...
Unbelievable! Why are Roma shooting themselves? The high line is suicidal against this Liverpool side and Salah again had a free run to flaunt them athletic legs and his pace and the layoff was perfect for Mane who tapped it in this time! 
...
56' GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL! MANE HAS HIS TAP IN! SALAH HAS HIS ASSIST! Liverpool are running riot again!
...
54' Mane offside! The front three once again pressed the Roma defence who didn't know what to do there. This could get ugly if the away side aren't careful. 
...
53' Roma haven't played that badly, it's just that they are so predictable. Their chances have come from the left with Kolarov's cross and Lovren has calmly headed them away with authority. 
...
51' Henderson gets froward to join the attack but Liverpool take too long and Roma get back snuff out the chance. Roma are being overrun here and need more numbers in midfield. 
...
50' Firmino so smoothly chests the ball and holds it at the middle of the park. Calm as a monk, the Brazilian. He sets Salah off on a break...
...
49' Liverpool nearly combine again as Mane and Firmino play a one two. Fazio manages to clear in the end. The threat is incredible. They're all queuing up to score 
...
48' Roma ease a bit of the early pressure by winning a freekick but the Liverpool press is making things difficult for the side...
...
47' Smashes the wall but Liverpool quickly win the second ball and in possession. 
...
46' Roma start brightly but Liverpool are still in the mood here. They get an early freekick for handball and TAA is on the ball at the edge of the box...
...
PEEEEEEEEEEP! We're back! Liverpool start proceedings and are shooting from left to right...
