OUTCLASSED ROMA DOWNS BARCA

    AS Roma pulled off one
    of the great
    Champions League
    comebacks by thrusting
    Barcelona out with a
    remarkable 3-0 win in
    their quarterfinal
    second leg on Tuesday,
    overcoming a 4-1
    deficit from the first
    game to reach the last
    four on away goals.
    Roma forward Edin Dzeko who scored a vital away goal in their 4-1 defeat at camp nou, opened the scoring
    when he had a close shave with the offside trap and latched onto a
    a deft through ball from Daniele De
    Rossi to score in the sixth minute, lifting the
    hopes of the boisterous home fans in the Olympic
    Stadium.
    Captain De Rossi converted a penalty in the 58th
    for the hosts after Dzeko was fouled by Gerard
    Pique, giving Roma a deserved second goal after
    Dzeko and his Czech strike partner Patrik Schick
    Laid waste to two clear chances each before the half-time whistle.
    Roma’s Kostas Manolas headed the decisive third
    goal in the 82nd minute, putting the Italians in
    the semifinals for the first time since 1984 when they last reached the European cup final and
    making amends for his own goal in the first leg
    at the Nou Camp.
