Di Francesco likes Roma attitude before Liverpool clash

Jurgen Klopp

Roma boss, Eusebio Di Franceso, is relying on the Egyptian winger's previous spell at the Stadio Olimpico as an advantage against his side's upcoming Champions League semifinal cup tie against Liverpool.

Speaking to Belgian outlet HLN, Nainggolan said: "I wasn't happy with the draw, because in my view Liverpool were the toughest team out of the three".

Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to Philippe Coutinho as Liverpool prepare to face the Roma side that dumped Barcelona out in the quarter finals of the Champions League.

"Is it that now he's scored 40 goals maybe we should pay £50m?"

Kevin Strootman thought the opening goal was his but it was Francesco Vicari who turned the ball in from a Pellegrini cross in the 33rd minute. And this can be a great chance for Roma.

But Nainggolan - wearing the captain's armband and one of many Serie A players to smudge a red streak on his cheek in support of a campaign against violence against women - missed a chance for a second sending the ball into the side netting just before the break.

Guardiola: I want Manchester City to be a Premier League machine
The Belgian got on the scoresheet, too, scoring a thunderous effort to cap a man-of-the-match performance for Pep Guardiola's men. Next Ilkay Gündogan played an inadvertent one-two with the referee, Craig Pawson, that allowed the German to find David Silva.

The result was sealed shortly afterward when Patrik Schick headed in Pellegrini's cross for his first league goal for the capital club. The first leg is away from home and that can be an advantage, but also makes it very hard to prepare tactically.

Bottom side Benevento was 12 points from avoiding the drop after stunning AC Milan 1-0 and, with four rounds remaining, could still mathematically achieve safety.

"We knew that we needed to have a great performance against a team in remarkable shape and playing three games in a week took a lot out of us", the Coach told Mediaset Premium.

Iemmello beat the offside trap in the 29th minute to slot home a through ball from Nicolas Viola and Benevento nearly doubled their lead early in the second half but Danilo Cataldi fired over the crossbar.

Sassuolo cemented their mid-table status with a 1-0 win over off-form Fiorentina.

Champions Juventus and second-placed Napoli go head-to-head Sunday in a clash which could decide the Serie A title.
