Rome (April 11, 2018): Italian Roma makes an extraordinary comeback to swipe Barcelona out of the Champions League with 3-0 at home (Stadio Olimpico) to reach the semi-finals by overturning a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

Roma entered the game as massive underdogs after losing the first leg of their quarter-final 4-1 against a Lionel Messi-led team that was one of the big favorites to win the competition.Messi and fellow Barcelona forward Luis Suarez hardly threatened as Roma dominated possession for long stretches and stifled the Catalan club with high pressure.

Roma capitalized on its aerial threat through Dzeko and Patrik Schick and its stifling defense forced Barcelona into a series of uncharacteristic misplaced passes.It’s the first time that Roma has reached the last four since it lost the 1984 final to Liverpool on penalties in its own stadium – and it’s the third straight year that Barcelona has been eliminated at this stage.
