Roma spectacularly defeat Barcelona 3-0 to qualify for the semi finals

Barcelona

The Giallorossi faced an uphill task heading into the second leg at the Stadio Olimpico after losing 4-1 in Catalonia, but the Serie A side progressed with a 3-0 win after goals from Edin Dzeko, Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas.

"They are a top team with a top manager and I would say they deserve to be in the final". Deportivo trailed AC Milan 4-1 before winning the second leg 4-0 in 2004 and Barcelona infamously won their second leg against PSG 6-1 in 2017.

Trailing 4-1 after the first leg, Roma went ahead on the night after six minutes as Edin Dzeko latched on to Daniele de Rossi's long-range pass before poking the ball beyond Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

It's the first time that Roma has reached the last four since it lost the 1984 final to Liverpool on penalties in its own stadium - and it's the third straight year that Barcelona has been eliminated at this stage.

The first match in the Catalan capital ended with the score 4:1 - it seemed that Barcelona will not have problems with saving huge advantages, but the return game from the first moments went according to script of Lionel Messi and company.

They haven't conceded a goal at home in the whole competition and on Tuesday restricted Barcelona to just three shots on target despite the potent attacking firepower boasted by Ernesto Valverde's side.

"It's a possibility, that's why it's so tough to take.", he said when asked if he would ever represent Barca in Europe again. The Bosnia global ran onto a simple ball over the top and recovered from a poor first touch to poke past goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen. He bullied his way past Gerard Pique into the area and then went to ground under a tug and a trip, allowing De Rossi to rattle home a penalty. "The Champions League punishes you for that".

Roma substitute Stephan El Shaarawy had a chance at Roma's third in the 79th but Ter Stegen produced a brilliant save to deny the striker from close range.

"We knew we could do it, and we showed our strength".

Champions League debutant Patrik Schick nodded high and wide following a corner, before squandering a huge opportunity with another header from Federico Fazio's cross that flashed past the left-hand post.

"If we wanted to try something, we knew that we were playing against one of the biggest teams and obviously the first goal helped us a lot, pushed us forward even more with our great fans behind us". Of course we regret it for us, but especially for our fans, the people that we represent.
