Grobbelaar will forever be remembered for play-acting during the penalty shoot out against the same Italian opposition as he turned his legs to jelly on his goal-line.

"We have seen the draw and things would have changed little, whoever we had got in the end", he said.

Playing for Roma football club, Turkey's Cengiz Under will be a key player against Liverpool in the upcoming UEFA Champions League semifinal, said Roma's sports director on Friday.

And Alisson, who has starred throughout their European run, is now hopeful Roma can go one step further and reach May's final in Kiev.

Lazio are in blistering form in the Italian top-flight having won their previous three games, including the 6-2 demolition of Benevento last week.

They wrapped up a sixth straight Bundesliga title last Saturday and are into the semi-finals of the German Cup. "At this level, all the teams - Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid - are great sides, incredible".

Sevilla, needing to score at least two goals, started pushing forward themselves as Pablo Sarabia fired wide on a rare forage behind the Bayern defence.

Liverpool Club Ambassador lan Rush said: "No one gave Roma a chance after 4-1 in Barcelona to win 3-0".

Sevilla's best chance came just shy of the hour mark when Argentine winger Correa hit the woodwork after connecting with a Jesus Navas free-kick, the ball bouncing to safety with Sven Ulreich well beaten.

Fresh from their Uefa Europa League exit to Red Bull Salzburg, Simone Inzaghi's men will be eager to bounce back from the setback with a victory against their fierece rivals.

30 goals have surfaced in the last nine meetings between both sides which signifies that a flurry of goals will likely come out of this tie.

The draw was made at 12.15 pm British time or 1.15 pm Central European Time. The competition's top-scoring team added five goals to their tally by beating favoured Manchester City in the quarter-finals. For the third straight round, Roma start on the road.
