So, who do you fancy in the Champions League semi-finals? 2 big teams in each competition face each other making sure 1 reaches final.

Liverpool reached the semi-finals after beating Manchester City in an all-Premier League quarter-final.

Bayern have won the Bundesliga at a canter, but they were not convincing in defeating Sevilla in their quarter-final tie.

"100% fixed and UEFA exposed", tweeted another while a fellow fan said: "That Champions League draw is fixed and I will be writing a strongly worded letter to UEFA about it". Madrid is looking to win its third consecutive Champions League title.

Bayern are the last side to have won the European Cup three years in a row, a feat achieved between 1974 and 1976.

Real Madrid - who lead overall with 12 titles - are joined by Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Roma. But here's the thing: Madrid own Bayern in recent seasons.

The former Liverpool custodian is happy that Roma knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League as he believes the Catalan giants play boring football and lack the entertainment factor.

After the draw, the American business man commented, "It's a great draw!"

The Reds famously beat Roma in the European Cup final in 1984 and Salah sees no reason why Jurgen Klopp's men cannot lift the trophy again in Kiev next month.

Roma ended an even longer drought, having last competed in the final four in 1984 when the Giallorossi eventually lost to Liverpool in the final.

Klopp could have been forgiven for feeling relieved that Liverpool avoided holders Real Madrid and formidable German champions Bayern Munich in Friday's draw.

'It is just the draw and I know it is very exciting, but it is good because the most important news is we are still in the competition. We have on our hands four matches of insane intensity.

The first legs will be played on April 26, with the return games on May 3.

The Egyptian joined the Reds from Roma on a £35m fee in the summer of 2017.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos will face no punishment from UEFA after he appeared to watch his side's Champions League tie against Juventus from the tunnel.
