Roma boss Di Francesco takes full credit for UCL defeat of Barcelona

There was no stooping Kostas Manolas who sneaked in at the far post to head home a corner, capitalizing on poor defending on 82 minutes as De Francesco's men pulled off a major upset.

With a three-goal deficit to make up from the first leg, City needed an early goal to give them hope and they got exactly that, taking the lead in the second minute.

Roma: Alisson 7, Juan Jesus 6, Federico Fazio 7, Kostas Manolas 7, Aleksandar Kolarov 8, Radja Nainggolan 7, Daniele De Rossi 8, Kevin Strootman 6, Alessandro Florenzi 7, Patrik Schick 6, Edin Dzeko 9.

Barcelona were on the front foot in the opening exchanges, with Sergi Roberto and Lionel Messi both having chances in the first four minutes.

But Dzeko took his chance at the other end after six minutes.

And then it was Dzeko's turn to twice go for goal with his head; the first effort forcing Ter Stegen to turn the ball over the top, while the second looped awkwardly behind.

The Catalan giants threw numbers forward in search of a goal that would send them through to the semi-finals, but Roma managed to hold out in the final stages to secure a famous win on away goals and their spot in the last four.

Samuel Umtiti's error allowed Edin Dzeko to score in Roma's win over Barcelona.
