Liverpool 5-2 Roma: Champions League semi-final first leg – as it happened

The Guardian Simon Burnton - 1 hour ago

Liverpool screamed into a five-goal lead in thrilling style, and then took Mo Salah off and wobbled 10.15pm BST And that’s all from me. It’s been memorable. Thanks for sharing it with me. Bye! 10.13pm BST Here’s the best quote I can find from Di Francesco: “We started well, but we lost too many duels in defence and then we lost our heads. We were in trouble, and we lost our unity. We kept a good attitude until the end.” #premiumchampions#DiFrancesco: "Siamo partiti bene, ma se perdiamo troppi duelli in difesa poi perdiamo la testa. Siamo andati in difficoltà e ci siamo disuniti. Teniamo buono l'atteggiamento nel finale". #LiverpoolRoma #UCL pic.twitter.com/awl9I7m4B5 Continue reading...

Mo Salah leads Liverpool onslaught to leave Roma needing new miracle

The Guardian Daniel Taylor at Anfield - 1 hour ago

Of all the mesmerising nights Liverpool have experienced under Anfield’s floodlights in European competition, where does this one stand? Up there, surely, with Saint-Étienne in 1977, the take-a-bow goal from Steven Gerrard against Olympiakos in 2005 and the fightback against Borussia Dortmund in 2016. Liverpool have put themselves in command and, barring an almost implausible feat of escapology, can start looking forward to the final in Ukraine on 26 May. The only possibly note of caution could be that Roma have already overcome a 4-1 first-leg deficit in the Stadio Olimpico against Barcelona in the quarter-finals. On that basis, Jürgen Klopp will be dismayed by his team’s carelessness when they had a 5-0 lead. Perhaps the manager made a mistake of his own by withdrawing Mohamed Salah, who had scored two and set up another couple. Roma promptly scored twice and, somehow, Liverpool managed to combine scoring five times with a nervous climax to an extraordinary night. Continue reading...

Derby’s Matej Vydra bares teeth to boost play-off hopes against Cardiff

The Guardian Paul Doyle at Pride Park - 1 hour ago

Matej Vydra came off the bench to fire Derby into the Championship’s play-off places and put a dent in Cardiff hopes of securing the second automatic promotion spot. Neil Warnock’s team were set to tighten their grip on second place behind Wolves when Callum Paterson gave them the lead here, but Cameron Jerome and Vydra struck back in the second half to inflict a defeat on the Welsh side. Cardiff remain in second place but only by one point, meaning Fulham or Aston Villa could yet overhaul them with two rounds of matches to go. Warnock is aiming for his eighth promotion in a managerial career spanning more than three decades. When he achieved his first, by leading Scarborough out of the Conference in 1987, Gary Rowett was coming to grips with secondary school. Although a rookie compared to Warnock, Derby’s manager is not without wiles. But, as with his recent predecessors at Pride Park, he has yet to solve the riddle of how to make Derby consistent.
