| sbobet online 24 Former Liverpool favourite Lucas showed his old Anfield team-mates how to keep Roma at bay as he got stuck into the Reds Champions League semi-final opponents.
The Brazilian – who was a hugely popular figure during his decade-long stint on Merseyside – was cautioned for a heavy challenge on Manchester City old boy Edin Dzeko just 11 minutes into a typically-feisty ‘Derby della Capitale’.
Despite Roma stunning world football on Tuesday night, thrashing Barcelona 3-0 to knock the Catalan giants side containing Lionel Messi and company out of Europe, they were unable to find a way past Lucas and his colleagues as the game ended in a goalless stalemate.
Lucas’ yellow card was one of six on the evening while his own side also had to survive the final 10 minutes with just 10 men after Stefan Radu was given his marching orders for his second bookable offence after hauling down Roma’s young Turk Cengiz Under.
After the game, Roma’s colourful president James Pallotta, the American businessman who went from being soccer sceptic to football fanatic – who made a €230,000 donation to the restoration of the Piazza del Popolo fountain after jumping into the historical landmark to celebrate his side's defeat of Barca – insisted that the players needed to look beyond their last four pairing with Jurgen Klopp’s men. sbobet online 24
He said: “The result? It was a tough week after the match against Barcelona. We can’t only think of the Liverpool game, we must focus on the others as well.
“If we can reach the final? Why not. They are strong but we can play well.
“What did I tell the players this morning? What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas, same goes for what happens in the locker room.”
Pallotta also insisted that Roma – who sold Mohamed Salah to Liverpool last summer – are determined to hold on to highly-rated Brazilian Alisson who has also been linked with a move to the Reds.
He added: “I don’t understand why people keep asking me (If Alisson will stay), we don’t have any intentions of selling him. No chance. We do not want to sell him.” sbobet online 24
