Salah scores 40th goal of the season as Liverpool see off Bournemouth

The Liverpool forward left the Giallorossi in the summer, but he'll be reunited with his former club in the Champions League semi-finals. I would love if it would be because of a knock, but if it's because of a strain, tear or whatever, I have no clue.

"Of course, I have happy memories".

However, Klopp's side did not rest on their laurels and found a rhythm and intensity the visitors struggled to match throughout.

The Egypt international's relentless form in Liverpool's front line means Philippe Coutinho has not been missed since his January move to Barcelona.

"What a number we've scored as a team over the whole season", added Klopp, whose side host Roma in the Champions League semi-final first leg on April 24. We played together for two years and were fighting together in all the games.

"I didn't see the knock", the German told Liverpool's official website.

Roma sporting director Monchi believes the tie also offers the Italians hope of progress.

Defender Andy Robertson said ahead of the draw the team would take great confidence from their performances against the Premier League champions-elect into their next European encounter.

"This club have been here before and they know how hard it is, regardless of who you are playing, to get to the final and try and win this trophy", Robertson said.

"We have to carry it on for a few games to come".

The two met at the quarter-final stage last year and Real advanced after scoring three times in extra-time of the second leg once Bayern had gone down to 10 men.
