Defender Kostas Manolas then headed in the third goal to decide Barca's fate with just seven minutes remaining.

Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco has opted for a front two as his side look to overturn a 4-1 first-leg deficit, giving club-record signing Patrik Schick his first Champions League start alongside leading scorer Edin Dzeko.

"I don't care about becoming part of Roma's history".

Roma, who lie fourth in Serie A, qualified from the group stages at the expense of Chelsea and ahead of Atletico Madrid but were given little chance of prolonging their Champions League campaign after their mauling in Barcelona. "In the first leg they denied us two penalties but tonight we showed that Roma can play with and beat anyone". Roma dominated the game, they believed in themselves.

Reed moves three clear at Masters
Major-less young studs Patrick Reed and Jon Rahm are right there too, and it's still anyone's green jacket. No one has ever rallied from more than eight shots behind after 36 holes to win the Masters .

"For a team like Roma, it's truly incredible", he told Mediaset Premium. Striker Edin Dzeko had opened the scoring, after a attractive defence spliting pass 6 minute from Danielle De Rossi, who himself had bagged the second with a neatly taken penalty. - "Go Roma" in Roman dialect - followed by two heart emojis in yellow and red.

Messi and fellow Barcelona forward Luis Suarez hardly threatened as Roma dominated possession for long stretches and stifled the Catalan club with high pressure.

Edin Dzeko of Roma.

"It's hard [to keep calm] when you score the third goal, and the third goal obviously brings you the semifinal, but [Di Francesco] was clever, there were still 10 minutes to play, with added time nearly 15 minutes to play and we know what Barcelona can do, not just in 15 minutes but in one minute", Dzeko said.

The last time Roma got so far in Europe's top competition was back in 1984, when the Giallorossi contrived to lose the final on penalties to Liverpool at their own ground.

Their failure to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League since their win in 2015 demonstrates as much, and prompted apologies from both Bartomeu and Valverde. "There's lots of excitement surrounding this competition and we have failed again".

Iniesta added: "It's really tough".

It was De Rossi's first Champions League goal since October 2015. "I put out the same team as last week", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde. "We had a great opportunity and we didn't seize it". The Bosnia worldwide ran onto a simple ball over the top and recovered from a poor first touch to poke past goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
