Following swiftly on from the corresponding Europa League draw, UEFA wheeled out Andriy Shevchenko to perform the drawing of lots for the Champions League semi-finals.
The first semi out of the bowl o’ doom was Bayern Munich versus Real Madrid, who squeaked past Sevilla and Juventus to make it into the hat, in a battle of the super clubs.
After shelling Man City out of the equation in the previous, Liverpool then found themself lumped against Roma, erstwhile slayers of Barcelona, in their last-four encounter.
As far as Jurgen Klopp’s team are concerned, that’s probably the kindest draw they could have hoped for – not that the Giallorossi are to be taken lightly, of course.
