  • Barcelona

Barca went into Tuesday's quarter-final second leg at the Stadio Olimpico with a 4-1 lead, making them massive favourites to progress to the last four.

Roma started the second half as they started the first and got their reward in the 58th minute when Edin Dzeko was chopped down by Gerard Pique and De Rossi slotted home the spot-kick.

Roma pulled off what many deemed as mission impossible against Barcelona in the second leg of their quarter-final tie.

Current mood in Barcelona.

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.

The announcement would only be made when William and Kate have informed Queen Elizabeth and other members of their families. The couple has a full-time nanny, Maria Borrallo , who will also have the youngest Cambridge baby under her charge.

His away goal had given Roma a glimmer of hope, and his sixth-minute strike kick-started a memorable night.

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

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin in February said that video technology would not be introduced for European competitions next season, citing "lots of confusion".

Gabriel Jesus' goal raised belief inside Etihad Stadium that City could do what only two teams had done before tonight and overturn at least a three-goal first-leg deficit in the Champions League knockout stage. "[He] chooses the team, the changes, he plans the game, the season.so I am absolutely responsible for everything".

"This would be a great triumph for any team, but for Roma and considering our story in European competitions, it's truly incredible", De Rossi told reporters.

At one point, Ronda was able to get the upper hand and hoisted Hunter on her shoulders in what looked to be her finisher. Kurt Angle would hug Rousey after she went over to the crowd and then the pair walked off together backstage.

The home fans breathed a sigh of relief four minutes later as Messi scuffed a shot straight at Alisson from six yards out after weaving his way into the area, and Roma survived another late scare when Ousmane Dembele sent an audacious shot from 40 yards out narrowly over the bar when Alisson's clearance fell into his path in stoppage time. "I think the club is glad too!" As Jurgen Klopp said on Tuesday: "They lost Mo Salah and they are in the semis - it's a big thing!" "It's hard to accept this elimination because we had a lot of hope for this season and once again it (the Champions League) has escaped us".

According to Ivan San Antonio of the same outlet, Valverde had a similar message: "We're sorry for them, for the disappointment".

"It was easier for me to play when Schick and Radja were closer to me, it created more space and stretched their defence".

The former Manchester United manager declined to stay in the North West while two of his fiercest rivals, Liverpool and Man City, duked it out for a place in the semi-finals and instead flew to Italy.
