Given Barca had captured a commanding 4-1 lead from their quarter-final first-leg in Spain last week, it looked like Leo Messi and co would be coasting into the last-four, but they didn’t bank on the Romans launching a stunning comeback on their home turf tonight.
Are you not entertained?! Is this not why you are here?!

Goals from Konstantinos Manolas, Daniele De Rossi and Eden Dzeko secured a 4-4 aggregate score, meaning the Serie A side advance, and Dzeko’s display played a major part in their progression.
Not only did he score the vital away goal in the Nou Camp, but the former Man City striker proceeded to bully Gerard Pique and Sam Umtiti in the Barcelona defence tonight.
The fact he was oh so close to joining Chelsea in the January transfer window has come back to haunt a lot of Blues fans tonight – and their struggling to hide their anguish:
Imagine if we signed Dzeko fffs, best striker itw

Dzeko and Manolas reducing Messi to tears but Marina wanted Giroud and Rudiger instead because cheaper. Tears.

Dzeko absolutely outstanding tonight, unplayable for Roma against Barcelona yet we signed the Arsenal outcast Giroud @ChelseaFC and they got Aubameyang, this sums up our board and Abramovitch settling for Second Best making us Second Tier @btsportfootball

Fair play Roma! Everyone laughed when they topped our group 👏 Chelsea should have signed Dzeko when they had the chance in January!

Should have signed Dzeko instead of Giroud tbh

Dzeko scored home and away vs Barcelona, I'm still pissed we never signed him. Top quality striker

Should Chelsea have signed Dzeko instead of Giroud? What do you think?
