Roberto Firmino to score first as Liverpool face Roma with UCL final in sight
A man of the match performance from Jack Butland prevented our 6/1 treble from landing while West Brom's dramatic late equaliser against Liverpool also cost us an 11/5 winner on Saturday. All eyes will be on the Reds again this week of course as they face Roma in the Champions League semifinals.

The Home Banker
Liverpool are a short as 2/5 to qualify against Roma and while they are rightful favourites following those brilliant performances in the quarterfinals against Manchester City, it would be foolish to write off the Italians. The Giallorossi are third in Serie A and showed their strength in depth over the weekend as a much changed side won 3-0 against SPAL. They have the players to hurt Liverpool and will surely go to Anfield to try and bag an away goal. Both teams to score is a 4/6 shout with bet365 and looks very solid under the circumstances.
The Tasty Treble
Bayern Munich (21/20) will fancy their chances of beating Real Madrid at home on Wednesday evening and they look tempting at odds against to see off Zinedine Zidane's men. Los Blancos survived an almighty scare in the last round against Juventus and they've looked fragile at various times this season, particularly at the back, underlined by the fact they are fully 15 points behind Barcelona in La Liga. Elsewhere, Arsenal are 6/4 to see off Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Europa League semifinal. With Arsene Wenger declaring this will be his final season at the Emirates, the Gunners will surely want to send him off in style and the recent form of Alexandre Lacazette has been encouraging. Throw in Marseille (13/20) who should be too strong at home against FC Salzburg for a European treble paying almost 15/2.
The Euro Wager
Mohamed Salah was crowned PFA Player of the Year on Sunday and such has been his deadly form in front of goal he's as short as 8/15 to score anytime against old club Roma. The brilliant Egyptian has hit an eye-watering 41 goals in just 46 matches but the value could lie with Roberto Firmino on Tuesday. The Brazilian is a 9/2 poke and has hit 25 goals himself this season, including eight in the Champions League.

The Wildcard Tip
Bayern Munich know they will need to stop Cristiano Ronaldo in Munich but if they can keep the shackles on the Portuguese goal machine they'll have every chance of securing a first leg advantage to take to Madrid. A 2-1 correct score is a 15/2 shout might be the way to bet at the Allianz Arena in a game that is sure to produce goals.
The Bookie Basher
Liverpool's front three have looked absolutely unplayable at times this season, especially at Anfield where the atmosphere against Roma should be bouncing. An early goal would open the contest right up and backing Liverpool to win 3-1 makes plenty of appeal at 10/1 if "The Fab Three" are in the mood.
