UEFA Champions League

Result: AS Roma 3-0 FC Barcelona (4-4 on agg - Roma advance on away goals rule)

Date: 10 April 2018

Venue: Stadio Olimpico

FC Barcelona were dumped out of the UEFA Champions League after losing 3-0 to AS Roma in the second leg of their quarter-final in Rome.

Six minutes into the half, Roma took the lead as Daniele de Rossi played in Edin Dzeko, who fired past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The Italians continued to push for a second goal as the first half went on, with the likes of Dzeko and Schick squandering chances after 25 minutes.

Barca struggled to carve out openings and Roma went close again after 37 minutes through Florenzi, who rose above his marker before seeing his header tipped over the bar by Ter Stegen.

Lionel Messi then went close shortly before the break but sent a curling free-kick inches over the crossbar.

Roma started the second half in the same vein as the first, and they were awarded a penalty in the 58th minute, which De Rossi converted, 2-0.

The Italians managed to carve out another chance in the 69th minute but Ter Stegen was on hand to keep out Kevin Strootman's effort from distance.

Roma eventually bagged a third goal to make it 4-4 on aggregate in the 82nd minute as Kostas Manolas rose highest to head home Cengiz Under's corner.

The Catalan giants threw numbers forward in search of a goal that would send them through to the semi-finals, but Roma managed to hold out in the final stages to secure a famous win on away goals and their spot in the last four.

where re they KK-kELLS Apr 05, 2018 02:24 PM this is an indication that you don't mark one particularly player whereas there 10 other players on the field.... Roma tried to stop Messi but they failed to stop the rest of the others... barca will win 5- 0 at home n 9-1 on aggregate Reply Report Default Nick#10 Joined: 08 Dec 2016 No badges available View Profile Nick#10 Apr 05, 2018 12:54 PM Wish we get Madriots in da semis our daily bread in our daily home nd awayhome Reply Report Default Deftman05 Joined: 18 Aug 2013 No badges available View Profile Deftman05 Apr 05, 2018 10:52 AM Barcelona all the way, I like this team Reply Report Default Thokozani_Shezi Joined: 01 Sep 2012 No badges available View Profile Thokozani_Shezi Apr 05, 2018 10:36 AM Messilona Reply Report 5ac73ab106b73 link&iviwe Joined: 20 Mar 2018 No badges available View Profile link&iviwe Apr 05, 2018 10:27 AM Semifinal is loading eish Im only scare of buryen more specially if they start at Alians arena they bulling there last seaso were clearly robbed by referees dicisions perfomance wise they tried but it wast to be Reply Report Default Schweinstriker_31 Joined: 15 Sep 2015 No badges available View Profile Schweinstriker_31 Apr 05, 2018 09:40 AM semi finals should be madrdiots vs the mighty barca Reply Report

He had the best teammates all his career unlike CR7 who played with ordinary players but he shines because he is a hard worker

This Valverde reminds me of when Moo joined Madrid like really what was Barça thinking? Well then he should win the league and cup, and Barça must find a new tactician next season otherwise we're doomed. Anyway congratulations to Roma, you deserve to reach the semis.
