There was rage at the refereeing and tears of pride and regret in the Curva Sud, and in the end Liverpool will go all the way to Kyiv where they will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

To win they will need to match Madrid’s elite mentality. Can Steven Gerrard help?

Terry Daley reports from Rome on a weird and wonderful night at the Stadio Olimpico.

Raphael Honigstein tries to describe why Real Madrid win, and why Bayern keep falling short.

Plus there’s Virgil and Lovren the odd couple, Klopp’s silver medals, some 1960 European Cup Final memories, and we hear some highlights from one of the longest interviews Lionel Messi’s ever done.
