Image emerges of L'pool/Roma UCL draw being allegedly rigged

Champions League By: Linus Onyeze | 13/04/2018

Some football fans are claiming the Champions League semi-final draw was rigged after it emerged Roma allegedly advertised tickets for a match with Liverpool before the teams were paired together.

A screenshot of an email sent to Roma season ticket holders on Thursday appears to show a link to buy tickets for a match on May 2 between Roma and Liverpool.

And in today's draw, the Italian side were duly paired with the Premier League club, and because Roma were drawn out second, they will play the second leg at home on May 2, reports the Daily Mail.

The website link was swiftly taken down but not before conspiracy theorists took to social media and online forums to claim UEFA, European football's governing body, had fixed the draw.
