Roma players celebrate reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League after a 3-0 second leg win over Barcelona
11 April, 2018, 16:54
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.
Roma capitalized on its aerial threat through Dzeko and Patrik Schick and its stifling defense forced Barcelona into a series of uncharacteristic misplaced passes.
As well as scoring the first goal, Dzeko won the penalty which de Rossi converted, having been hauled to the floor by Gerard Pique, and it was also the Bosnian who had struck Roma's crucial away goal at the Nou Camp.
Champions League comeback kings Barcelona were dethroned in the Italian capital on Tuesday, as Roma completed one of the most unlikely turnarounds in quarter-final history.
Unlike Liverpool, Barcelona conceded at home the previous week. "I really thought it was a joke. So I am absolutely responsible for everything".
Still, this season already marks a turning point for Roma's American ownership team led by Boston executive James Pallotta.
Wow, indeed. It was Dezko's sixth-minute goal that signaled Roma's determination to overhaul Barcelona.
Roma says Pallotta was to see Raggi later Wednesday for a previously scheduled meeting. Kostas Manolas headed in at the near post to spark wild celebrations.
Klopp is fully aware of that. The club sold Mohamed Salah, Leandro Paredes and Antonio Rüdiger in the summer, while Totti retired. For Liverpool, paying 42 million euros (then $47 million) for the Egyptian forward now appears a bargain. Lionel Messi was the only Barcelona player to create more than one chance on Tuesday, while six did so for Roma.
"They are a tough team with a top manager", City manager Pep Guardiola said of Liverpool.
"I don't want a side that rests on its laurels or thinks it doesn't matter how the game goes". "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". What the two clubs have in common are investors from Boston, Massachusetts. "I am very happy that I can watch the draw for the semi-finals and see my Roma there".
The Giallorossi made them pay nearly immediately as Dzeko latched onto a glorious ball over the top from De Rossi and poked past Marc-Andre ter Stegen to open the scoring on six minutes. "You don't get fans like that in too many places in the world".
Eleven years to the day of their joint-heaviest European defeat ever, Roma enjoyed one of their most memorable nights.
"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.
Further, he said: "Of course we should believe in the final. Unfortunately, it is always work".
