The two-leg tie finished 4-4 on aggregate but Roma went through to the semi-finals on away goals thanks to Edin Dzeko's 80th minute strike in their 4-1 defeat at the Nou Camp a week ago. The club sold Mohamed Salah, Leandro Paredes and Antonio RĂ¼diger in the summer, while Totti retired.

Own-goals from De Rossi and Manolas handed Barcelona a 2-0 lead last week but Dzeko's late consolation goal in that match proved decisive when Roma advanced on away goals.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Returning to the Liverpool dressing room, Juergen Klopp was savoring the unexpectedly smooth elimination of Manchester City. I respect Roma, fantastic football team.

While the Roma fans celebrated long into the night, the Spanish press composed their headlines and they weren't flattering to the vanquished.

Roma capitalized on its aerial threat through Dzeko and Patrik Schick and its stifling defense forced Barcelona into a series of uncharacteristic misplaced passes.

Barcelona's star players simply didn't turn up, Lionel Messi included. "I think the club is glad too!"

Even Guardiola said himself before the first leg that the way his City side play is flawless for Liverpool, and apart from a stirring first-half effort from City in the return game, the quarter-final proved exactly that.

"They are a tough team with a top manager", City manager Pep Guardiola said of Liverpool. They have been eliminated from FA Cup and Champions League this season, after a promising start in both campaigns.

According to Ivan San Antonio of the same outlet, Valverde had a similar message: "We're sorry for them, for the disappointment".

That could leave Bayern Munich as the sole league leader still in contention in Europe with the newly crowned Bundesliga champions holding a 2-1 advantage over Sevilla heading into Wednesday's second leg.

"I'm not sure you cannot concede when you've got two strikers that don't put anything into defending", he said, per MailOnline's Robert Summerscales.

Although Liverpool's three-goal burst last week came in the opening 45 minutes, they hit City with quickfire goals in the 59th and 61st minutes when they inflicted a first Premier League defeat of the season on the English champions-elect in January.

"The truth is that I made this choice to create more width, allow more counter-attacks and bring rapidity, but what really changed was the philosophy of the side and we have to continue like this now".
