Soccer Roundup: Champions League semifinals draw – Bayern Munich–Real Madrid, Liverpool-Roma / World Scores

MLS RECAP:

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Dominic Dwyer scored his 99th career goal off Sacha Kljestan’s 86th assist and Orlando City beat the Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Friday night.

Orlando (3-2-1) won for just the second time in its last nine road games. Philadelphia (1-2-2) is winless in its last four matches.

Dwyer gave Orlando City its first lead of the season in the 38th minute. Kljestan chipped it over the defense and Dwyer timed his run perfectly to curl it around a charging Andre Blake.

Seven minutes later, Chris Mueller dribbled it from near midfield and capitalized on a defensive giveaway at the top of the 18-yard box for the rookie’s second goal.

LOS ANGELES FC 2, WHITECAPS 0

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi scored in the second half and expansion Los Angeles FC beat Vancouver to end the Whitecaps’ 11-game Major League Soccer home unbeaten streak.

Marco Urena assisted on both goals to help Los Angeles (3-2-0) end a two-game losing streak.

The Whitecaps dropped to 3-3-1.

The matchups are set for the UEFA Champions League semifinals, with Bayern Munich taking on Real Madrid and Liverpool facing Roma.

Bayern-Madrid will get the most headlines following Friday’s draw, as the giants meet in the knockout stage for the third time in five years. Real Madrid barely got here, blowing a 3-0 aggregate lead against Juventus in the quarterfinals before being saved by a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty.

Roma ralliered back from a 4-1 aggregate deficit against Barcelona in the quarterfinals, winning 3-0 at home in the second leg to go through on away goals. Liverpool’s quarterfinal matchup with English rival Manchester City was a nervy one, but the Reds pulled hung on to get back to the semifinals for the first time since 2008.

The first legs will be played on April 24 and 25, with the return legs on May 1 and 2. Bayern Munich hosts the first leg against Madrid, while Liverpool opens at home against Roma.

The final will be held is May 26 at the Olympic National Sports Complex In Kiev, Ukraine.

Here’s a look at the semifinal clashes:

Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid

In a matchup of two of the world’s premier clubs, Madrid has had the upper hand in recent years. The Spanish side trounced Munich in the 2014 semifinals on a 5-0 aggregate score, and won 6-3 in last season’s quarterfinals. This marks the eighth consecutive appearance in the semifinals for Real Madrid. Ronaldo has scored 15 goals in the competition this year, by far the most of any player.

Liverpool vs. Roma

The Italians’ stunning comeback against Barcelona put them in the semifinals for the first time in the Champions League era. Liverpool star Mo Salah joined from Roma last summer, so this tie marks a reunion for the Egyptian who has scored 39 goals in all competitions this season.
