Roma players celebrate reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League after a 3-0 second leg win over Barcelona
11 April, 2018, 16:58
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.

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".
