Champions League Results 2018: Qualified Teams After Tuesday Quarter-Final Games

Barça won 4-1 in the first leg, a seemingly comfortable result to take to to the Stadio Olympico, but there was always the element of doubt, as Roma had the revered away goal.

Kostas Manolas was the hero as he rose high to a header in the 82nd minute to head it into the back of the net from a corner to send Roma fans into absolute delirium.

Just as they were at the Camp Nou, Roma were aggressive from the off, and Dzeko gave the home side a deserved lead after just six minutes, brilliantly bringing down De Rossi's clipped through ball, holding off Samuel Umtiti and poking the ball past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

The Citizens were already ahead courtesy of Gabriel Jesus' finish after less than two minutes, but they thought they'd doubled the lead thanks to Leroy Sane shortly before the break.

Patrik Schick headed Aleksandar Kolarov's corner well wide in the 14th minute before Radja Nainggolan shot wide from range as a vociferous home crowd urged their team forward.

They do have an away goal in their advantage, but they need to score three times while keeping Barcelona silent for that to count for anything.


Substitute Stephane El Sharaawy scrambled a half-effort on the byline off a cross but Ter Stegen made himself big with a point-blank stop.

Barcelona threw the kitchen sink at Roma late on but with Messi and Ousmane Dembele unable to convert their chances, Roma held on to complete their unlikely comeback win.

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.

"Coming back from 4-1 down to Barcelona is unbelievable just by itself, but watching the way the team played for 90 minutes - this wasn't a game where we luckily won, it just felt like the whole time we sort of had them back on their heels".

Roma last reached the last four of Europe's premier club competition in 1983-84 when they lost to Liverpool in the final, and they will now fancy their chances against anyone - including the Reds and former star Mohamed Salah, who defeated Manchester City in Tuesday's other quarter-final.
