In pictures: Liverpool survive Roma scare to book Champions League final spot

Liverpool were beaten in Rome at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday night but still squeezed through to the Champions League final.

Real Madrid await Liverpool in Kiev on May 26 in what promises to be a night of attacking flair with Zinedine Zidane’s job under threat following a tough season for the Los Blancos chief.
