Ghanaian football fans excited about Barcelona's defeat to AS Roma

Roma Vs Barcelona how to watch online live streaming information and probable lineups

Manolas, who along with captain Daniele De Rossi scored the two own goals at the Camp Nou that looked to have sent Roma out, was mobbed by his delirious teammates after glancing home a brilliant headed victor with 8 minutes left that sent the Roma supporters into raptures and left a dazed and confused Barca wondering what had hit them.

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.

Captain De Rossi converted a penalty in the 58th for the hosts after Dzeko was fouled by Gerard Pique, giving Roma a deserved second goal after Dzeko and his Czech strike partner Patrik Schick missed two clear chances each before the break.

Roma entered the game as massive underdogs after losing the first leg of their quarterfinal 4-1 against a Lionel Messi-led team that was one of the big favorites to win the competition.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said after the game, "It was quite hard tonight, again especially with the start".

Trailing 3-0 from the first-leg City manager Pep Guardiola had said his team needed to produce a "perfect game" at the Etihad Stadium if they were to achieve a famous comeback and for 45 minutes they were not far off that level.

And then it was Dzeko's turn to twice go for goal with his head; the first effort forcing Ter Stegen to turn the ball over the top, while the second looped awkwardly behind. "I put out the same team as last week", said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.

The visitors' Sergi Roberto squandered the first chance of the game but after that Barcelona struggled to respond to Roma's constant waves of attacks until substitute Ousmane Dembele whistled a long-range shot just over the bar in added time.

Barca pressed on to pull back one goal but failed to find the back of the net as they crash out of the continental competition, with La Liga and the Copa del Rey their only possible titles this season. "We had a great opportunity and we didn't seize it".

"We came here to try to win the match. 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".

Greek defender Manolas completed the unlikeliest of wins with eight minutes remaining, as the Catalans were beaten in the knockout phase after winning the first leg by at least three goals for the first time in their history.
