Barca went into the second leg sitting on a 4-1 advantage, only to lose 3-0 on the night at the Stadio Olimpico to crash out on away goals.

Eusebio Di Francesco's hosts - 4-1 down from the first leg - attacked from the off, with Edin Dzeko the driving force that finally pushed Barca into submission.

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.

Ronaldo, Griezmann On Target As Atletico Hold Real Madrid
And Diego Simeone's side nearly netted immediately after, but Koke's attempt was brilliantly kept out by the Costa Rican global . Griezmann thus marked his 200th game for the club with his 108th goal , 18 of which have come in 20 games during 2018.

Defender Kostas Manolas, who like De Rossi scored an own goal in Roma's luckless first-leg defeat, headed in a corner in the 82th minute to put his side through on away goals and complete one of biggest surprise comebacks in the history of Europe's premier club competition.

"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. "I am responsible absolutely, I am the visible head of the team and it was down to me".

Barcelona's star players simply didn't turn up, Lionel Messi included.

Most of the fans who spoke to Ghanaweb.com said they were "excited about Barcelona's elimination", whiles a group of fans were dumbfounded after they discovered that the Catalans lost to the Romans.

The Giallorossi made them pay nearly immediately as Dzeko latched onto a glorious ball over the top from De Rossi and poked past Marc-Andre ter Stegen to open the scoring on six minutes. "We did great. This is also very important for me too as I am 34 years old". They have been eliminated from FA Cup and Champions League this season, after a promising start in both campaigns.

"We've been a rogue figure in the Champions League since the group stage, we've caused problems for everyone and we want to continue that in the semi-finals".

Bayern Munich, already crowned Bundesliga champions, will hope to be the exception to the rule against Sevilla, with a 2-1 lead to defend in Bavaria.
