Di Francesco On Roma Win: I Deserve The Credit

Barcelona

Barcelona suffered a shocking quarter final exit from the Champions League after suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Roma which means they loose out on away goals after the game ended 4-4 on aggregate.

Eusebio Di Francesco's side needed to overturn a 4-1 deficit from the quarter-final first leg and they did so in style.

That Achilles heel resurfaced on Tuesday, as after a rousing first-half performance gave them hope, Salah's 39th goal of the season all but ended the tie 11 minutes into the second period.

Champions League comeback kings Barcelona were dethroned in the Italian capital on Tuesday, as Roma completed one of the most unlikely turnarounds in quarter-final history.

Current mood in Barcelona.

"I've never seen Barcelona struggling as much, now I am looking forward to playing the semi-finals with this Roma side".

Cengiz Under whipped in a corner from the right and there was defender Kostas Manolas at the near post to head the ball home for one of the most famous goals in Roma's history.

Fire reported at Trump Tower in NY : fire department
Firefighters are at the scene of a fire at Trump Tower in New York City. "There is now one serious injury to a civilian reported". President Trump's office in the Tower is on the 26th floor, but the president is in Washington, D.C. for the weekend.

"Everyone is now affected by this but we need to bounce back because we have two competitions that we want to win". Premier League leaders Manchester City have now lost three consecutive matches. "I am responsible absolutely, I am the visible head of the team and it was down to me". They have a fantastic team.

"At halftime, we said if we scored a goal it would change the atmosphere", Klopp said.

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. "After the first leg we saw that the gap between us and them wasn't really all that large". They have been eliminated from FA Cup and Champions League this season, after a promising start in both campaigns.

Bayern will host Sevilla while Real Madrid will welcome Juventus in the other quarterfinal matches on Wednesday.

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

The loss is Manchester City's third in a row in one week following a derby defeat to league rivals Manchester United over the weekend sandwiched between their losses against Liverpool in the Champions League.
