Club Appears To Reveal Champions League Semi-Final Draw, Quickly Deletes
The Champions League semi-final draw takes place today, but it appears AS Roma have already (well for a moment) advertised their last four tie.
Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and the aforementioned AS Roma are the only teams remaining in Europe's elite competition.
There's a representative from Spain, Germany, England and Italy ahead of the draw to determine who plays who.
But have the Serie A outfit spilled the beans on the draw? It wouldn't be the first 'suspicious' act at a UEFA event.
Eagle-eyed viewers spotted AS Roma selling tickets for a home semi-final leg against Liverpool.
Needless to say, it was quickly deleted.
The latest blunder will continue to stoke the claim that UEFA rigs these draws.
Cast your mind back to the quarter-final draw.
People branded it as 'suspicious' after the Spanish and Italian sides all managed to avoid each other, while the only two Premier League teams were paired together in Liverpool vs. Manchester City.

Nearly half the draw was Spanish and they all avoided each other. Then the two English teams face each other. Great stuff.

So the 3 Spanish teams avoid each other. And the 2 English teams get each other. That's some BS
