'It seems untrue': Roma stuns Barcelona in UEFA Champions League

"We come from a good season, from a good dynamic but unfortunately today it has been cut short, and this is the end of our way in Champions League".

Two-nil against that team is a little bit different.

'It was a long way from that to winning 3-0 and not conceding at home, but all credit to the Coach, because he invented this formation two days ago, drilled it into our heads and it worked wonders'.

Defender Kostas Manolas scored the crucial third goal, heading in at the near post with seven minutes remaining before Edin Dzeko struck early to give Roma hope and Daniel de Rossi added a second-half penalty.

Only two clubs had previously overturned at least a three-goal first-leg deficit in the Champions League - Deportivo La Coruna beat AC Milan 4-0 after losing the opening leg 4-1 in the 2004 quarterfinals and Barcelona routed Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 after losing the first game 4-0 in last season's Round of 16.

The former Sassuolo boss was also successful in motivating his team from the touchline, and keep them calm when their dream appeared set to become reality.

Goals from Edin Dzeko, Daniele De Rossi and Konstantinos Manolas ensured the Serie A side came back from a three-goal deficit to advance through to the semi-finals on away goals.

Ernesto Valverde said Barcelona's failure to deal with Roma's "aggression" was the main reason why his side exited the Champions League on Tuesday night. "They were very strong with second balls and we aren't used to defending like that".

"Now we have to take another step - not think we're in the semi-final and have already achieved the maximum".

Striker Dzeko also waxed lyrical about his side's tactics and said he played with more freedom alongside Patrik Schick in attack, with Radja Nainggolan, who missed the first leg with injury, behind them.

Dzeko was at it again after the break with a show of brute force, shrugging off Gerard Pique and Umtiti to approach the goal.

The second, just before the half-hour mark was even more glaring, a free header on the penalty spot that should have hit the target.

"I'm not sure you cannot concede when you've got two strikers that don't put anything into defending", he said, per MailOnline's Robert Summerscales.

"Italy needed a European team, and that's what we were tonight".

Manager Di Francesco said the aim of the change in formation was to make his side more unsafe down the flanks and also praised his players for their near-perfect display.
