Chelsea Fans Were Particularly Frustrated Watching Roma’s Comeback v Barcelona

Roma caused one of the biggest shocks in modern European football history this evening by knocking Barcelona out of the Champions League – and Chelsea fans were pretty frustrated watching it.

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.

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:

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