Klopp shocked by Roma heroics: They lost Salah but still beat Barcelona!

Manolas, who along with captain Daniele De Rossi scored the two own goals at the Camp Nou that looked to have sent Roma out, was mobbed by his delirious teammates after glancing home a brilliant headed victor with eight minutes left that sent the Roma supporters into raptures and left a dazed and confused Barca wondering what had hit them. "They beat us in all the ways, they took us where they wanted because they needed a big result, and unfortunately they got it", Busquets said.

"Well when you lose a match like this you think about everything that went wrong". "A week ago we were performing well".

Walter Pandiani, Juan Carlos Valeron and Albert Luque had Depor ahead on away goals before half-time, with Fran Gonzalez - who played for them in the second division in the late 80s and is still their record appearance holder - fittingly scored the fourth to make sure of their passage.

"The truth is that I made this choice to create more width, allow more counter-attacks and bring speed, but what really changed was the philosophy of the side and we have to continue like this now". Striker Edin Dzeko had opened the scoring, after a handsome defence spliting pass 6 minute from Danielle De Rossi, who himself had bagged the second with a neatly taken penalty.

Both games kick off at 7.45.

Shortly after the half-hour mark, Roma fans protested for a perceived hand ball inside the area but it appeared that Samuel Umtiti used his chest to deflect a shot from Schick. Dzeko got away from the Peak and forced the Spaniard to break the rules.

The referee didn't immediately point to the spot but then showed a yellow to Pique and awarded the penalty. Midfielder De Rossi emphatically planted the penalty past Ter Stegen.

It was De Rossi's first Champions League goal since October 2015.

De Rossi flashed a header wide in the 69th minute, and 10 minutes later it looked like Ter Stegen had saved the away side's skin with an incredible close-range stop from Stephan El Shaarawy.

"A failure without excuses", said their front cover, with an editorial adding: "Valverde's fear leaves Barca without another Champions League in the era of Messi".

Valverde waited until the final 10 minutes to use all three of his substitutions.

Trailing 3-0 from the first-leg City manager Pep Guardiola had said his team needed to produce a "perfect game" at the Etihad Stadium if they were to achieve a famous comeback and for 45 minutes they were not far off that level. The message is that we're sorry for all the Barca fans around the world. "It's going to be a tough blow".
