Champions League holders Real Madrid are still on course to defend their crown with Cristiano Ronaldo in sensational form.

But Liverpool are also looking for silverware this season and Mohamed Salah is being tipped to lead them to European glory.

Liverpool overcame a shaky start against Manchester City at the Etihad to book their spot in the semi-finals as Mohamed Salah scored in their 2-1 win over Guardiolas side.

In Italy, Roma recorded a stunning 3-0 win over Barcelona to send Lionel Messi and Co crashing out of the competition.

Barcelona held a 4-1 lead from the first leg but an inspired display from the Italians saw them cause a huge European upset.

Meanwhile, holders Real Madrid looked to be heading out of the competition when they found themselves 3-0 down to Juventus in the second leg.

But Ronaldo popped up with the winner in the last minute to send them through.

Bayern Munich's 0-0 draw with Sevilla in the second leg was enough to see them progress.
