Barca finally came out of their shells as Roma tried to hold on to the result, but the hosts held on brilliantly to see the result out and go through to the semis for the first time since 1984, when they lost the final at home to Liverpool, Tuesday's other victors.

But things did not go to plan for Ernesto Valverde's men, as Edin Dzeko got Roma fans dreaming with his sixth-minute opener, before Daniele De Rossi made it 2-0 from the penalty spot just before the hour mark.

Dzeko's sheer will and brute force were the primary reasons behind Roma's shocking elimination of Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Current mood in Barcelona.

"I care about Roma reaching the Champions League semi-final against the best team in the world - Barcelona!".

Roma fans celebrated throughout the night, waving flags and driving scooters around the central Piazza Venezia.

Cengiz Under whipped in a corner from the right and there was defender Kostas Manolas at the near post to head the ball home for one of the most famous goals in Roma's history.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin in February said that video technology would not be introduced for European competitions next season, citing "lots of confusion".

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.

Despite their patchy domestic form, which sees them battling with Inter Milan and local rivals Lazio for a space in next season's Champions League, Roma are through to Friday's draw, where Liverpool are potential opponents, on merit. "I am responsible absolutely, I am the visible head of the team and it was down to me".

The Italian leaders could join them on the Champions League scrapheap on Wednesday night, with Juventus trailing holder Real Madrid 3-0.

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.

"It wasn't easy, but I stayed here and am very happy to be here", the 32-year-old Bosnian said following the game.

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