Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both scored twice as the Reds romped into a 5-0 lead after 68 minutes with two late away goals coming that could change the semi-final tie.
Liverpool have taken a firm grip on their UEFA Champions League semi-final on Tuesday evening after beating Roma 5-2 in the first leg at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah scored twice and set up goals for Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, who added another to make it 5-0, before Edin Dzeko and Diego Perotti struck in the space of four minutes late on.
It’s half-time in the tie. Another big 90 minutes in Rome await.

With the goals from the visitors, there is a slim chance of turning the tie round in next Wednesday’s return game in the Italian capital.
Are you not entertained, Roma!?
