Roma celebrate knocking Barcelona out of Champions League in style

But while that didn't happen, in Rome there sensational scenes as the Serie A side became only the third team in Champions League history to overturn a first-leg defeat of three goals or more, following in the famous footsteps of Deportivo La Coruna (against AC Milan in 2004) and Barcelona (against Paris Saint-Germain in 2017).

"It wasn't easy, but I stayed here and am very happy to be here", the 32-year-old Bosnian said following the game. The club sold Mohamed Salah, Leandro Paredes and Antonio Rüdiger in the summer, while Totti retired.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Returning to the Liverpool dressing room, Juergen Klopp was savoring the unexpectedly smooth elimination of Manchester City.

Liverpool's participation is already confirmed, with Juventus and Real Madrid and Sevilla and Bayern Munich facing off on Wednesday night to seal the final two spots in the draw.

The atmosphere inside the Stadio Olimpico was deafening as Roma unexpectedly dominated.

Eusebio Di Francesco's side deserves all the plaudits and praise considering how they pressed the Catalans all over the pitch and produced an excellent performance to keep a clean sheet. He has six goals in all in this season's competition.

French sports daily L'Equipe labeled it a "Romantada" - a play on the Spanish word "remuntada", which translates as comeback.

Apple's global facilities now 100% powered by clean energy
The company has claimed that it now has 25 renewable energy projects in operation around the globe and generates 626 megawatts. The company has also urged utilities to procure renewable energy to help power Apple's operations.

It will come as little consolation now, but Barca remain the perpetrators of the most remarkable of all Champions League comebacks.

Roma have brought some pride back not just to Rome, but to Italian football after the country's humiliating failure to qualify for the World Cup earlier in the season.

Further, he said: "Of course we should believe in the final".

Roma has received preliminary approval to build a long-delayed new stadium with a design inspired by the Colosseum.

Liverpool, which beat Roma in the 1984 final, will be contesting its first Champions League semifinal in a decade.

Neither of the pair had a night to remember in a match in which a single Barcelona goal would have all-but guaranteed their progression, and with Radja Nainggolan, Daniele De Rossi and Kevin Strootman often overwhelming the visitors' midfield, the extra bodies could have lightened their team-mates' load.

The Blaugrana needed to improve in the second half, but instead they conceded a penalty 12 minutes after the restart when Dzeko went to ground under a challenge from Gerard Pique.
