Klopp: 'Roma honour Liverpool!'

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp feels it is “a big honour” that Roma are using the same system that beat Barcelona 3-0.

The first leg of the Champions League semi-final kicks off at Anfield at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).

“We cannot get a result without a good game,” said Klopp.

The Giallorossi have again used a 3-4-2-1 formation, the only difference from the Barcelona triumph being Cengiz Under in for Patrik Schick.

“It’s a strong [Roma] side. They are playing the same system they played against Barcelona – so [that’s a] big honour!

“It will be exciting. It’s a really open game with two strong sides. Go through their line-up and it’s a mixture of experience, youth, skills, threat and everything.

“Go through our line-up and it’s pretty much the same. That’s how a semi-final should be.”
