Roma dump Barcelona out of Champions League with stunning win

  • Roma vs Barcelona

Di Francesco abandoned the 4-5-1 shape he used in the 4-1 first-leg defeat by Barca at the Nou Camp, instead engineering a 3-5-2 formation which saw his side overwhelm the Liga leaders with relentless high pressing and long balls behind the defence.

The Bosnian striker netted the opener in the first half and was fouled by Gerard Piqué to be awarded a penalty kick scored by Daniele De Rossi in the second half.

It's just over one year since Barcelona produced *the* most remarkable comeback in the history of the Champions League.

Current mood in Barcelona.

Further, he said: "Of course we should believe in the final".

A 3-1 first-leg loss at Stamford Bridge - having trailed 3-0 - had Barca in danger of being on the wrong end of a major 1999-00 Champions League upset prior to the Roman Abramovich era, but in the return match the Catalans showed their true class.

His away goal had given Roma a glimmer of hope, and his sixth-minute strike kick-started a memorable night.

Dzeko pulled one back for the Serie A giants and Kostas Manolas headed home the third to cap off an incredible turnaround.

Gabriel Jesus' goal raised belief inside Etihad Stadium that City could do what only two teams had done before tonight and overturn at least a three-goal first-leg deficit in the Champions League knockout stage. "So I am absolutely responsible for everything".

Jimenez's criticism of Messi is perhaps a little unfair, though, as he was involved throughout-according to Summerscales he had 61 touches of the ball, just six fewer than the commanding De Rossi managed, per Squawka Football-and frequently had to drop deeper to create for the team with Andres Iniesta struggling to do so himself. The club sold Mohamed Salah, Leandro Paredes and Antonio Rüdiger in the summer, while Totti retired.

Safe to say, there are definitely going to be several thousand sore heads in the Italian captial city on Wednesday morning - and who can possibly blame them?

According to Ivan San Antonio of the same outlet, Valverde had a similar message: "We're sorry for them, for the disappointment".

And the club website enjoyed itself on Twitter too.

"It's a possibility that this might be my last game in the Champions League but right now this is hard for all the team, all of us", Barcelona captain Andrea Iniesta said after setting a record with his 22nd match in the quarterfinals. They have been eliminated from FA Cup and Champions League this season, after a promising start in both campaigns.

"I remained here and I am happy".
