Barcelona are out of the Champions League after a 3-0 defeat at Roma in their second leg tie! A 4-1 scoreline from a week ago seemed certain to ensure Valverde’s team a place in the semi-finals for the first time in three years, but with only two minutes gone Dzeko gave the locals the lead following a De Rossi assist. The Italian side dominated the match after that, Ter Stegen having to make several saves, and a Rossi penalty for a foul by Piqué on Dzeko, and a late header by Manolas from a corner, took them through on the away goal rule.
