Lucas Leiva Has Special Plans For Liverpool's Away Leg At AS Roma
Lucas Leiva is still a red. He not only purposely bruised AS Roma players during the Rome derby ahead of the Champions League fixture, but he's also planning something special for the semi-final second leg.
After hosting the Serie A outfit, Liverpool head to the Italian capital for the return leg.
And ex-Anfield star Lucas is hoping to attend the game.
However, the Brazilian wants to soak up the atmosphere of a major European game from the stands amongst the traveling Liverpool support.
"It will be a great night, for sure. For the players, a good experience," Lucas said about the Champions League experience to LFC.
"It's a big game, a semi-final. It maybe won't be that different from some games that I experienced with Liverpool - the Europa League, that game against Dortmund and then Villarreal."

Following his stint in the Premier League, while also being a Lazio player, naturally, he's rooting for Liverpool.
"I'm looking forward to it and I'll be supporting Liverpool for sure."
And he wants to take a seat inside the Stadio Olimpico next Wednesday with his friends and son.
"I'm still thinking about it, but I'm hoping I can go to the Liverpool end and watch the game - and maybe take some of my friends and my son.
"We still follow Liverpool a lot, we watch every game and I hope they can get to the final."
The Liverpool faithfuls adore Lucas, and he continues to occupy a place in their hearts.
He'll be cheering on Jurgen's lads, that's for sure.
