Roma ’s last appearance in the knockout rounds came in 2016 when they lost home and away to Real Madrid in the Round of 16 to bow out 4-0 on aggregate and it will take something pretty extraordinary if they are to threaten a comeback here.

Roma had begun the comeback early when Edin Dzeko controlled an over-the-top pass between two defenders and poked in after six minutes for his sixth goal in this season's competition.

Then near the hour mark, Dzeko earned a penalty that Daniele De Rossi converted.

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

In the day's other quarter-final, Liverpool advanced after recovering from conceding a goal inside two minutes against Manchester City to win 2-1 thanks to second-half strikes by Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
