Roma advertise Champions League tickets to face Liverpool BEFORE the draw for the semi-final is made

ROMA caused a huge blunder by advertising tickets for a Champions League semi-final tie against Liverpool… before the draw has been made.

The Italian side are into the last four of the competition for the first time in their history after their sensational comeback against Barcelona.

And they seem so eager to flog tickets that they offered supporters the chance to purchase home seats against Jurgen Klopp’s side on Thursday night.

The website error was quickly taken down, but not before eagle-eyed viewers grabbed a screenshot of the tie supposedly taking place on May 2.

The draw for the semi-finals of the Champions League begins in Switzerland at 12pm on Friday.

Back-to-back winners Real Madrid are also in the hat alongside German giants Bayern Munich.

The premature posting will fuel conspiracy theorists. Just last year Spanish publication AS suggested that Uefa had used a heated ball to avoid an all-Spanish final.

And in 2016 questions were asked over Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos when he was tasked with picking out teams assigned in pot four of the Champions League group stages.

He was seen by television cameras picking up a ball, holding it for a few seconds before putting it back in and grabbing another.

Uefa hit back at speculation that the draw was fixed when Giorgio Marchetti said last year: “How can the balls be hot or cold?

“It’s impossible. With the category of player that we invite to the draw, I would never ask someone to do something that was not honest when picking the balls. It’s a joke.”
