Football Club Roma Appear To Reveal Champions League Semi-Final Draw, Quickly Deletes
The Champions League semi-finals draw took place on Friday lunchtime but it appeared AS Roma had already (well, for a moment) advertised their last-four tie.
Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Roma are the only teams remaining in Europe's elite competition.
There's a representative from Spain, Germany, England and Italy in the draw and Real were paired against Bayern while Liverpool will face Roma.
But did Serie A giants Roma spill the beans on the draw before it even took place? It wouldn't be the first 'suspicious' act at a UEFA event.
Eagle-eyed viewers spotted Roma selling tickets for a home semi-final leg against Liverpool.
Needless to say, it was quickly deleted.
The latest blunder will do little to ease the minds of some who reckon their is a deep conspiracy theory.
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 versus Manchester City.
Nearly half the draw was Spanish and they all avoided each other. Then the two English teams face each other. Great stuff.

3 Spanish teams and 2 couldn't play each other, 2 English teams and they playing each other. Weird isn't it!!

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