Roma dump Barca out of Champions League with stunning win

Eusebio Di Francesco

Di Francesco acknowledged before the match that his team needed a "miracle" to advance, and they got the start they needed when when Edin Dzeko controlled an over-the-top pass between two defenders after six minutes and poked in his sixth goal in this season's competition.

It nearly ended in shambles for Roma in stoppage time, with Alisson racing off his line to try to beat Pique to a long ball over the top, only for it to fall to Ousmane Dembele by the right sideline, some 40 yards out with nobody in goal. We have to try and win them because we have not won anything yet.

"We'll be up against some very tough opponents but then Barca were too". With the advantage we had we went out because we really did things badly.

It will come as little consolation now, but Barca remain the perpetrators of the most remarkable of all UEFA Champions League comebacks.

Klopp masterminded a 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City in their quarter-final clash, but will not be facing Barcelona in the last four.

Barcelona went in search of the one goal that would restore calm within the club, and it almost came from Messi in the 73rd minute, when he carved out space for a left-footed chance at the edge of the box, only for Alisson to catch it cleanly. I don't believe that we have.

"I am responsible. I make the team, I prepare it".

Police still searching for motive of man behind van crash
The Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper said the suspect's apartment was being searched Saturday night for possible explosives. Armin Laschet, the governor of North Rhine-Westphalia state where Munster is located, has also toured the city.

What made I Giallorossi's victory even more notable was the fact that the Blaugrana, famed for their "tiki-taka", were forced into playing a direct style of football, as the desperation to break down the Serie A side became evident as the game progressed in the second-half.

City's players gave it everything but were left in a precarious position because of the 3-0 loss in the first leg at Anfield and, crucially, its lack of an away goal. Having said that, I'll always carry Roma in my heart.

It is only the third time in the history of the Champions League that a side have overturned a three goal margin in the second leg of a game to go through.

Liverpool equalised in the 56th minute when Mohamed Salah rounded City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes and clipped in after Sadio Mane's piercing run has been halted in the box.

The Serie A side lost their prized asset Salah to Liverpool in the summer, with the Egypt global moving to Anfield in a £34 million deal, and he has since gone on to score 39 goals in 44 appearances this season.

The former Manchester United manager declined to stay in the North West while two of his fiercest rivals, Liverpool and Man City, duked it out for a place in the semi-finals and instead flew to Italy. "I would say they deserve to get in the final".
