Are Liverpool the team to avoid in Champions League draw?

| 12.04.2018

After Real Madrid scraped through against Juventus last night, we know now the four teams in tomorrow’s Champions League semi-final draw.

The Spanish giants are 13/8 favourites for a historic three-peat. Bayern Munich aren’t far behind at 7/4. Roma are 11/1 outsiders.

But no one will want to be drawn against 3/1 shots Liverpool in the final four.

Liverpool beat Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals, showing they can beat any side on their day.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are thrilling going forward. And the arrival of Virgil van Dijk has given them some defensive steel. It’s an impressive combination.

Then there’s the Anfield factor. It can be a fortress on these big European nights. City couldn’t handle the atmosphere in their quarter-final first-leg and found themselves 3-0 down inside the first-half.

Even seasoned European veterans like Madrid and Bayern won’t relish a trip to Merseyside.

After beating City, they’ll fancy their chances against anyone.
