Roma Shocks Barcelona To Qualify On Away Goals As Liverpool Also Qualify

Liverpool Roma

De Rossi hammered in the second goal of the night from the penalty spot after Edin Dzeko had got the hosts off to the ideal start by opening the scoring after six minutes at an electric Olympic Stadium. "I am responsible absolutely, I am the visible head of the team and it was down to me".

"They showed attitude and for whatever reason we didn't know how to respond, or to make chances", Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets said. "We knew the gap between us and them wasn't 4-1", he added. They (Roma) were strong, physical and we had a lot of problems.

Patrik Schick had the best chances to double Roma's lead before half-time on his Champions League debut, but continued the poor form in front of goal that has blighted his club-record move from Sampdoria.

It was a reversal of fortune for Barcelona who last term pulled off the greatest comeback in Champions League history by overcoming a 4-0 loss to Paris St Germain.

Liverpool ousts Man City: Liverpool reached the Champions League semifinals after recovering from conceding a goal inside two minutes against host Manchester City to win 2-1, thanks to second-half strikes by Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

Barcelona join PSG and AC Milan (eliminated by Deportivo La Coruna in 2004) as the only teams to have been knocked out after winning the first leg by at least three goals.

Trailing 3-0 from the first leg, City made the early inroad they needed when Raheem Sterling burst away and crossed for Gabriel Jesus to sweep past Loris Karius after only two minutes.

Liverpool
GETTYLiverpool beat City 3-0 at home and 2-1 away to progress

UEFA Champions League comeback king Barcelona was dethroned in the Italian capital on Wednesday (NZST), as Roma completed one of the most unlikely turnarounds in quarter-final history.

Barcelona's decline in recent years has often been masked by their impressive ability to continue to pick up silverware each season-something Messi should take plenty of credit for-but they're perhaps no longer the force they once were on the pitch and rely too heavily on their talisman.

And for 45 minutes they were not far off that level.

City hit the post through Bernardo Silva and had a goal by Leroy Sane incorrectly disallowed for offside in the last minutes of the first half.

Enter Salah. In the 57th minute, the Egypt forward pounced on a loose ball in City's area after goalkeeper Ederson Moraes saved at the feet of Sadio Mane.

The Serie A side lost their prized asset Salah to Liverpool in the summer, with the Egypt worldwide moving to Anfield in a £34 million deal, and he has since gone on to score 39 goals in 44 appearances this season.
