    Liverpool will be looking to win Europe's top prize for the sixth time having made it into the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in 10 years. Having come through the playoffs to the group stage of the competition, they are yet to lose in the competition and, with 33 goals, are the leading goalscorers in this year's competition. Winning 7-0 on two separate occasions against Spartak Moscow and Maribor in the group stage and a 5-0 win against Porto in the first leg of their round of 16 tie might not have got people convinced that Liverpool could be genuine contenders. However, having beaten Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City 5-1 over the course of two quarter-final legs might have got people thinking that maybe they could be a force to be reckoned with. Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, two of the main contenders, have already been eliminated,which has left the competition up for grabs. However, Roma, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich will also be looking at claiming Europe's top prize. Real Madrid - even after almost throwing away a 3-0 first leg lead at home against Juventus still have a chance to claim their third consecutive Champions League trophy, which would make it 13 overall, thanks to a disputed last minute Cristiano Ronaldo penalty. Bayern Munich - Five-times champions of Europe, making their sixth semi final appearance in seven years in which they have been involved in two finals, winning one and losing one. Roma - looking to win their first ever Champions League. Just like Liverpool they weren't seen as contenders but eyebrows were raised when they came back from a 4-1 first leg deficit to beat Barcelona on away goals. Could Liverpool bring Europe's top prize back to England for the first time since Chelsea in 2011-12?
