Roma eliminate Barcelona in Champions League

Ivan Rakitic

Gabriel Jesus gave the hosts a 2nd minute lead, but goals from Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino, ensured that Jurgen Klopp's men qualified on a 5-1 aggregate.

"Nobody believed in us and we have reached the semi-final for the first time in the Champions League [era]".

For all their possession and excellent attacking football, Guardiola's City continue to find themselves caught out shortly after the interval.

Roma were faced with the unenviable task to breach the Spaniards with three unanswered goals for a spot in the last four.

"It was a long way from that to winning 3-0 and not conceding at home, but all credit to the coach".

But VAR will be used at the World Cup and is already in place in Serie A and the Bundesliga.

Auto horns blaring, flags waving, fans singing in the streets and wild cheers pouring from every household, the Italian capital came alive Tuesday night as Roma knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League after a miracle comeback.

However, the visitors were unable to put the ball into the net, letting Roma to go through on away goal advantage.

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.

The game marked Lionel Messi registering yet another hat-trick for the Catalan giants and he naturally starts for Ernesto Valverde's side as they seek an eighth Champions League semi-final in the last 11 seasons. Thomas Vermaelen, Andre Gomes, the ineligible Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele all make way.

Champions League debutant Patrik Schick nodded high and wide following a corner, before squandering a huge opportunity with another header from Federico Fazio's cross that flashed past the left-hand post.

Manchester United were trailing 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the 1999 final at Camp Nou, with Mario Basler's skidding free-kick into the bottom-right corner looking set to be enough for the Bavarian giants to end a 23-year wait for glory in the continent's top-tier competition.
