Dzeko at a loss for words after Roma comeback

Barcelona

Roma forward Edin Dzeko had opened the scoring when he beat the offside trap and latched onto a perfectly weighted through ball from Daniele De Rossi to score in the sixth minute, lifting the hopes of the boisterous home fans in the Olympic Stadium.

Roma have their sights on Kiev and the Champions League final after completing a miracle comeback against Barcelona on Tuesday to overhaul a three-goal first-leg deficit and take their place in the competition's last four.

"I don't care about becoming part of Roma's history".

It isn't often that Barcelona get knocked out in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, and while Roma may have played out of their skins, Barcelona didn't have the best of games themselves. Roma dominated the game, they believed in themselves.

Roma: Alisson 7, Juan Jesus 6, Federico Fazio 7, Kostas Manolas 7, Aleksandar Kolarov 8, Radja Nainggolan 7, Daniele De Rossi 8, Kevin Strootman 6, Alessandro Florenzi 7, Patrik Schick 6, Edin Dzeko 9. - "Go Roma" in Roman dialect - followed by two heart emojis in yellow and red.

Messi and Luis Suarez were also singled out by BT Sport pundit Michael Owen, who believed they did not do enough to help out defensively.

'We knew it would be hard, but we had that little bit of belief. That is the case if we win or lose.

"It's painful because no one expected this after the advantage we had but you realise what the reality of the Champions League is like when you do things badly", a visibly distraught Iniesta told reporters. "We come from a good season, from a good dynamic but unfortunately today it has been cut short, and this is the end of our way in Champions League".

Roma sent favourites Barcelona crashing out with a sensational 3-0 win to reach the last four.

Ernesto Valverde's side were swamped by Roma's high pressing and struggled to get hold of the ball as they were bullied in the air by the more physical Italian side, who inflicted the damage with long balls over the top and frequent crosses. It's a very big disappointment after the great season we have had. 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.

The referee didn't immediately point to the spot but then showed a yellow to Pique and awarded the penalty.

Kostas Manolas took the third with his head at the near post with eight minutes remaining.

Valverde waited until the final 10 minutes to use all three of his substitutions.

"I would be lying if I said we could use this as a learning experience because a year ago we went out in a similar way", added Busquets.
