Roma dreaming of Kiev after magical recovery against Barcelona

Luis Suarez

Barca went into the second leg sitting on a 4-1 advantage, only to lose 3-0 on the night at the Stadio Olimpico to crash out on away goals.

Barca fielded the team that thrashed Roma in the first leg with the help of two own goals and were overwhelming favourites to go through but the five-times European champions barely got a foothold in the game after falling behind to Dzeko's opener.

Edin Dzeko gave the home side hope with a goal in the sixth minute before Daniele De Rossi made it 2-0 from the penalty spot just before the hour-mark.

Current mood in Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp side made it 4-1 on aggregate 10 minutes into the second half with a clean Mohamed Salah strike, before Roberto Firmino scored the victor for the night to end the game 5-1 on aggregate.

Roma fans celebrated throughout the night, waving flags and driving scooters around the central Piazza Venezia. "We all wanted to win the competition but only one can win", Valverde added.

Manchester City and Barcelona are all but certain to wrap up comfortable league titles in England and Spain this season, but both were unceremoniously dumped out of Europe. They have a fantastic team. Not that I don't respect Roma, the absolute opposite.

The home fans breathed a sigh of relief four minutes later as Messi scuffed a shot straight at Alisson from six yards out after weaving his way into the area, and Roma survived another late scare when Ousmane Dembele sent an audacious shot from 40 yards out narrowly over the bar when Alisson's clearance fell into his path in stoppage time.

"They showed attitude and for whatever reason we didn't know how to respond, or to make chances", Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets said.

"I really think they are the best team in the world at the moment", Klopp said of City. "It's hard to accept this elimination because we had a lot of hope for this season and once again it (the Champions League) has escaped us".

Bernado Silva hit the post, and Leroy Sane had a goal incorrectly ruled out for offside during the game, but Liverpool fully deserved to move into the semi-final stage of the Champions league.

Bayern Munich, already crowned Bundesliga champions, will hope to be the exception to the rule against Sevilla, with a 2-1 lead to defend in Bavaria.

"I remained here and I am happy".
