Roma pulled off an astonishing comeback in their 3-0 Champions League quarter-final triumph against Barcelona to seal a place in the semi-finals of the competition.

Roma's manager Eusebio Di Francesco said his side had to "produce a miracle" if they wanted to overturn their heavy deficit in the first-leg.

Edin Dzeko struck early to give Roma hope and Daniele de Rossi added a second-half penalty.

Current mood in Barcelona.

Transgender Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard Almost Dislocates Arm During Competition
Wallwork had controversially claimed: "A man is a man and a woman is a woman and I know a lot of changes have gone through". Hubbard, who spent most of her life as Gavin before transitioning, won two medals at last year's world championships.

His away goal had given Roma a glimmer of hope, and his sixth-minute strike kick-started a memorable night.

And with Barca trying to hold on, Kostas Manolas got the crucial goal eight minutes from time with a glancing header, Roma edging through thanks to their away goal.

Barcelona's decline in recent years has often been masked by their impressive ability to continue to pick up silverware each season-something Messi should take plenty of credit for-but they're perhaps no longer the force they once were on the pitch and rely too heavily on their talisman.

Pallotta, a Boston executive who was part of the four-man American team that purchased Roma in 2011, is also a minority owner of the Boston Celtics. Klopp had just secured Liverpool's Champions League victory at Manchester City when he was informed of Barcelona's 3-0 loss in Italy. Not that I don't respect Roma, the absolute opposite. The club sold Mohamed Salah, Leandro Paredes and Antonio Rüdiger in the summer, while Totti retired. "They lost Salah and they are in the semis!" Nobody believed in us and we have reached the semi-final for the first time in the Champions League. "I really think a normal final would have been Manchester City against Barcelona, and now they are both out".

Kejriwal slams PM Modi for detention of TDP MPs
Lok Sabha members of TDP chose Parliament's Central Hall as the venue of their sit-in protest. If we still stick to our posts, it would be like cheating them.

Leading 3-0 form the first leg of the tie at Anfield, the Reds had their lead cut down when Gabriel Jesus scored from Raheem sterling pass in the box just 2 minutes into the game. "It's hard to accept this elimination because we had a lot of hope for this season and once again it (the Champions League) has escaped us".

That could leave Bayern Munich as the sole league leader still in contention in Europe with the newly crowned Bundesliga champions holding a 2-1 advantage over Sevilla heading into Wednesday's second leg.

What made I Giallorossi's victory even more notable was the fact that the Blaugrana, famed for their "tiki-taka", were forced into playing a direct style of football, as the desperation to break down the Serie A side became evident as the game progressed in the second-half.

PM Modi to interact with workers on BJP's 38th foundation day
He interacted with workers of five Lok Sabhaconstituencies and all 734 district presidents of the party via video conference. He, however, told the party workers not to get agitated by the negativity of "vested interest groups".
