Superb Edin Dzeko goal sends Roma into Champions League quarter-finals

Superb Edin Dzeko goal sends Roma into Champions League quarter-finals

Shakhtar's desperation for the away goal it now required left gaps in defence and Ivan Ordets was dismissed for halting a late Roma breakaway, Alisson holding on for a fourth consecutive home Champions League clean sheet to seal a place in the draw for the last eight.

In the first half, Shakhtar managed to keep the ball and played carefully, searching for the ways to penetrate the opponent's defense line.

Shakhtar came close to extending their overall advantage when the Roma defender Alessandro Florenzi headed a floated free-kick into the box inches wide of his own far post.

Taison flashed a 25-yard effort over the top, before Federico Fazio recovered in time to force Facundo Ferreyra wide having cheaply given up possession to his fellow Argentinian.

Dzeko, who had his first chance in the opening minute, broke Shakhtar's stout back four in the 52nd.

Neither side could find the breakthrough by half time, but the Giallorossi went on to take the lead not long after the restart when Dzeko sprung the offside trap to latch on to a Kevin Strootman through-ball.




Ferreyra clashes with the boy.

Romelu Lukaku replied for the Red Devils, but it wasn't enough after the first leg ended goalless in Seville.

There have not been two Italian clubs in the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2006/07 when Roma joined eventual winners AC Milan in the last eight.

The 31-year-old has now been directly involved in six of Roma's Champions League goals this season.

Pyatov mistimed his rush off the line, leaving the former Manchester City marksman to get beyond the Shakhtar keeper and calmly prod the ball into an empty net to put Roma in pole position for progress. In the group stage of 2007-2008 Champions League, the Spaniard recorded the Shakhtar's win over Benfica (2:0). - Edin Dzeko has had a hand in 55 per cent of Roma's 11 goals in the Champions League this season (4 goals, 2 assists).
