The decorated Italian club put in one final training session upon home soil on Monday morning, before switching all focus to Merseyside.
The two clubs have history on the European stage, with Liverpool having beaten Roma in their own back yard in the 1984 final.
Penalties had to separate the sides on that occasion following a 1-1 draw, after which Liverpool emerged victorious following goalkeeping heroics from Bruce Grobbelaar.
With the home leg first up for Liverpool, Reds supporters have already made a pledge to create yet another electric atmosphere at Anfield.
Manchester City were left rattled by the noise in the quarter-finals stage, though Merseyside police have warned that any repeat of the ugly scenes which preceded the recent European match will be harshly dealt with.

Fans greeted the coaches in the last round in order to spur on the players ahead of a huge contest, though some individuals chose to throw objects at the City coach causing subsequent damage.
The victors of the contest, over two legs, will be rewarded with a Champions League final place against either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in Kiev on May 26.
Should Liverpool progress, it would mark a first return to a Champions League final since the summer of 2007, during which they were defeated by AC Milan in Athens.
