◼️ The blaugrana set was eliminated, they lost 3-0 against AS Rome and said goodbye to the UEFA Champions League in the quarterfinals.
The giant was on his knees on the lawn of the Olympic of the Italian capital. No matter the difference between one team and another, it didn’t matter the difference with which he arrived (4-1) after scoring at the Camp Nou. Barcelona’s dream of staying with the UEFA Champions League, and also with the treble in the season, stagnated after losing 3-0 to Rome.
Barça was a shadow. A performance that differed from the exhibited throughout the campaign in the continental contest and La Liga. It was 90 minutes in which the Giallorossi was the only protagonist, without having to run over the team culé but with the conviction and enthusiasm that could reverse history.
The heroic began to become reality from the 5 minutes, when the Bosnian Edin Dzeko was filtered by the Blaugrana defense and converted before the departure of Marc André Ter Stegen. From there, the possession was shared for both sides, the only clear opportunities for the visit were threatening to arrive from the feet of Lionel Messi with several free throws, although all went over the crossbar.
With the end of the first half, the lift seemed distant, until Daniele De Rossi billed at 12 ‘of the complement and those of Eusebio Di Francesco felt closer. The siege continued and the goal of the epic victory came to 10 minutes of closing, thanks to the appearance of Konstantinos Manolas to anticipate a corner at the first post.
Barcelona seemed hurt, went to look without too many ideas and the Italian team was in charge of supporting the result. The end came, the capital surprise was finalized and Rome continues its adventure to settle among the four best of the Champions League.
