Roma represents Italy in the semi-finals.

Despite their convincing 5-1 aggregate Champions League victory over Manchester City, former England worldwide Chris Waddle reckons Liverpool are still short of being able to challenge for the Premier League title.

The Champions League quarter-finals delivered in spectacular fashion this past week with sides mounting seemingly impossible comebacks to book their place in the last four.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos could be banned for the first leg of his side's UEFA Champions League semi-final after his appearance on the sidelines during Wednesday's clash with Juventus.

Suspended players are generally confined to the stands and prohitibed from "participating in a match when suspended or otherwise ineligible to play" by UEFA.

Atletico Madrid bring a 2-nil lead in the away leg of their meeting with Sporting Lisbon.

Ramos was seen discussing the game with the club's staff and, towards the end of the match, he was also involved in an altercation with Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri before Ronaldo stepped up and sealed Real's win with a penalty. According to AS, Ramos' decision to move to the tunnel contravened the conditions of his suspension, which was duly noted by the UEFA match delegate.

Alonso had been suspended for the final but jumped over a barrier to celebrate with his team-mates after the goal went in.

Of course, with Real Madrid scraping through at the eleventh hour, it is hard to see them not getting through to the final.
