Real Madrid-Bayern Munich, Liverpool-AS Roma in Champions League semifinals

GETTYChampions League draw The last four line-up may already have been confirmed

Indeed, the Zimbabwean was part of the side which beat the Giallorossi on penalties in the 1984 European Cup final, so he is better placed than most to comment on what it takes to succeed in such a high-pressure tie.

"I think if we get a Liverpool vs Real Madrid final then Real will be very scared and I have no doubt Liverpool could do it".

Bayern visit the Spanish capital on May 1 with Roma's Olympic Stadium hosting Liverpool on May 2.

In fact, Roma tweeted shortly after Friday's draw about how they were excited to see the Egyptian once again and that there would only be a competitive rivalry across the two legs.

Anfield will stage the first leg on April 24, when Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will reunite with the Roma teammates he left last June in a €42 million (NZ$70.4 million) transfer.

French club Marseille will play FC Salzburg, the club backed by soft drinks giant Red Bull, in the other semi-final.

Both return games will be played the following week.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, sacked by Real after guiding them to the 1998 Champions League title, goes into this game with the German club announcing that Eintracht Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac will replace him when he retires for a second time at the end of this season. They also met last season in the last eight when Real triumphed 6-3 on aggregate.

Arsene Wenger's team will have to nullify the threat of Diego Costa, who scored three goals in six games against the Gunners during his time at Chelsea, and also find a way to keep Antoine Griezmann, Atleti's 25-goal top scorer, quiet.

Atletico, beaten finalists in the Champions League in 2014 and 2016, will still be strong favourites to win this semifinal, however.

Real Madrid, who are in the semifinals for the eighth successive time, needed a stoppage-time goal from Cristiano Ronaldo to push his team past Juventus in the quarter-final tie. The final will be played on May 16 in Lyon, France.

Eusebio Di Francesco's side were 4-1 down after the first leg in Spain but won 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico.

Salzburg have already beaten Marseille once in the competition this season, a 1-0 victory in Austria.
