Roma upset Barcelona; Liverpool overcome Man City to reach semis

ROME, Italy: In one of the biggest upsets in recent times, Roma beat Barcelona 3-0 in Tuesday's Champions League quarterfinal second leg to progress on away goals after the tie finished 4-4 on aggregate.

Edin Dzeko's early goal gave Roma hope of overturning a 4-1 deficit from the first leg before Daniele de Rossi converted a 58th-minute penalty while Greece international Manolas completed an improbable turnaround eight minutes from time by glancing in a header from a corner. 

In another quarterfinal, Liverpool fought back to beat Manchester City 2-1 and win the two-legged tie 5-1.

Gabriel Jesus gave City a second-minute lead, raising hopes of a stunning comeback after they lost 3-0 in last week's first leg. But City's Leroy Sane had a goal wrongly disallowed for offside just before the break, and Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both netted after the break for Liverpool.
