Roma’s captain, Daniele De Rossi, praised the coach, Eusebio Di Francesco, after his side completed a remarkable comeback against Barcelona to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Trailing 4-1 from the first leg after a De Rossi own goal, they made a flying start with Edin Dzeko’s opener. The captain’s penalty in the 58th minute set up a frantic finale at the Stadio Olimpico before Kostas Manolos sealed the victory on away goals with a header eight minutes from time. It meant Roma have reached the last four for the first time since 1984 as Barcelona became only the third team in Champions League history to surrender a three-goal lead.
