Match background Only this chapter

AS Roma have it all to do in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final against FC Barcelona having been beaten 4-1 in Spain.

• Own goals from Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas were added to by Gerard Piqué at the Camp Nou on 4 April. Although Edin Džeko briefly raised Roma spirits, a late fourth for Luis Suárez gave Barcelona a comfortable cushion in the tie.

• Roma have lost both their previous UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, the most recent of which came a decade ago. The Giallorossi's only other last-eight tie, in 1983/84, also featured their sole aggregate win at this stage.

• Barça went on to the semi-finals for six years running between 2008 and 2013, although their last two campaigns – and three of the last four – have ended at this stage.

• The Italian club have now lost two of their five fixtures against Barcelona – a 6-1 reverse at the Camp Nou the last time the teams crossed paths two seasons ago and this first leg.

Highlights: Barcelona 4-1 Roma

Previous meetings
• The teams were last paired together in the 2015/16 group stage, when they drew 1-1 in Italy. Luis Suárez's 21st-minute opener was cancelled out by a spectacular Alessandro Florenzi goal ten minutes later to earn Roma a point.

• The line-ups at the Stadio Olimpico on 16 September 2015 were:
Roma: Szczęsny (De Sanctis 50), Florenzi (Torosidis 85), Manolas, Rüdiger, Digne, Nainggolan, De Rossi, Keita, Iago Falqué (Iturbe 81), Salah, Džeko.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Sergi Roberto, Piqué, Mathieu, Alba, Busquets, Rakitić (Rafinha 61; Mascherano 65), Iniesta, Messi, Suárez, Neymar.

• Barcelona were comfortable winners in the reverse fixture in Spain, Suárez and Lionel Messi each scoring twice with Gerard Piqué and Adriano also on target in a 6-1 home success. Edin Džeko, who missed a late penalty, got a consolation for Roma in added time.

• The clubs' other meetings came in the 2001/02 UEFA Champions League second group stage, starting with a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou, where Patrick Kluivert levelled a Christian Panucci goal.

• Roma won the return 3-0 with Emerson, Vincenzo Montella and Damiano Tomassi scoring. Barcelona still won the group, with Roma eliminated in third place.

• The teams in Rome on 26 February 2002 were:
Roma: Antonioli, Cafu, Panucci, Samuel, Zebina, Lima, Emerson, Candela, Totti (Cassano 87), Delvecchio (Montella 46), Batistuta (Tommasi 72).
Barcelona: Reina, Puyol, Christanval, De Boer, Sergi (Xavi 78), Cocu, Motta (Overmars 65), Luis Enrique (Rochemback 82), Gerard, Rivaldo, Kluivert.

Match background

Edin Džeko scores Roma's goal at the Camp Nou

• Roma's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W1 L2:
2007/08 Manchester United FC L 0-3 (0-2 h, 0-1 a)
2006/07 Manchester United FC L 3-8 (2-1 h, 1-7 a)
1983/84 Berliner FC Dynamo W 4-2 (3-0 h, 1-2 a)

• The Italian club have lost their last four matches in the quarter-finals.

• Roma's record in two-legged ties against Spanish clubs is W3 L4. Their most recent tie came against Villarreal CF in last season's UEFA Europa League round of 32, when a 4-0 away first-leg success set up a 4-1 aggregate victory.

• Eusebio Di Francesco's side have already faced Spanish opposition in this season's UEFA Champions League, recording a 0-0 home draw and a 2-0 away defeat against Atlético Madrid in the group stage. 

• Roma's overall record against Spanish clubs is W10 D5 L16; at home it reads W6 D2 L7. They are without a win in four home fixtures with Liga sides at the Stadio Olimpico, since a 2-1 scalp of Real Madrid in the 2007/08 round of 16; Florenzi's 2015 goal against Barcelona is the only time they found the net in those four matches.

• That win at Villarreal last season is Roma's only success in their last nine games against Spanish sides, home and away (D2 L6); they had won their previous three matches before that run.

• The 2-1 victory at Qarabağ FK on matchday two was Roma's first win in eight UEFA Champions League matches, home and away and including qualifying, since a 3-2 home victory over Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 4 November 2015. Matchday four's 3-0 scalp of Chelsea FC, the 1-0 home win against Qarabağ in their last group fixture and the round of 16 second-leg defeat of FC Shakhtar Donetsk by the same scoreline (2-2 aggregate, Roma win on away goal) still mean they have now won only five of their last 24 games in the competition (D8 L11), although they have triumphed in four of their last eight.

• Despite the defeats of Chelsea, Qarabağ and Shakhtar this season, Roma have won just four of their last 11 home matches in the UEFA Champions League – qualifying included – losing four.

• Roma overturned an away first-leg defeat in the round of 16, losing 2-1 at FC Shakhtar Donetsk but progressing on away goals after a 1-0 victory at home. That gave them the aggregate record W7 L14 when they lost the first leg away, and ended a run of six straight defeats in such ties.

• A two-goal margin is the biggest away first-leg deficit the Italian club have overturned at home; against Dundee United FC in the 1983/84 European Cup semi-finals (0-2 away, 3-0 home) and FK Partizan in the 1988/89 UEFA Cup second round (2-4 away, 2-0 home).

• Roma's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L3:
6-7 v Arsenal FC, 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16
3-4 v Real Zaragoza, 1986/87 European Cup Winners' Cup first round
3-4 v Liverpool FC, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final
4-2 v IFK Norrköping, 1982/83 UEFA Cup second round

Suárez taking nothing for granted

• Barcelona's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W14 L5, with three of those defeats coming in the past four ties:
2016/17 Juventus L 0-3 (0-3 a, 0-0 h)
2015/16 Club Atlético de Madrid L 2-3 (2-1 h, 0-2 a)
2014/15 Paris Saint-Germain W 5-1 (3-1 a, 2-0 h)
2013/14 Club Atlético de Madrid  L 1-2 (1-1 h, 0-1 a)
2012/13 Paris Saint-Germain W 3-3, away goals (2-2 a, 1-1 h)
2011/12 AC Milan W 3-1 (0-0 a, 3-1 h)
2010/11 FC Shakhtar Donetsk W 6-1 (5-1 h, 1-0 a)
2009/10 Arsenal FC W 6-3 (2-2 a, 4-1 h)
2008/09 FC Bayern München W 5-1 (4-0 h, 1-1 a)
2007/08 FC Schalke 04 W 2-0 (1-0 a, 1-0 h)
2005/06 SL Benfica W 2-0 (0-0 a, 2-0 h)
2002/03 Juventus L 2-3 (1-1 a, 1-2 h aet)
2001/02 Panathinaikos FC W 3-2 (0-1 a, 3-1 h)
1999/00 Chelsea FC W 6-4 (1-3 a, 5-1 h aet)
1994/95 Paris Saint-Germain L 2-3 (1-1 h, 1-2 a)
1985/86 Juventus W 2-1 (1-0 h, 1-1 a)
1974/75 Åtvidabergs FF W 5-0 (2-0 h, 3-0 a)
1960/61 DSO Spartak Hradec Králové W 5-1 (4-0 h, 1-1 a)
1959/60 Wolverhampton Wanderers FC W 9-2 (4-0 h, 5-2 a)

• The Spanish club's interest in last season's competition was ended by Italian opposition at this stage, Juventus winning 3-0 in the home first leg and overall.

• Barcelona's record in two-legged ties against Italian sides is W8 L4.

• The Blaugrana have already got the better of Italian opposition in this season's competition, taking four points off Juventus in the group stage including a 3-0 home win on matchday one.

• This season the Spanish side picked up five points on their travels in finishing top of Group D, winning 1-0 at Sporting Clube de Portugal on matchday two before 0-0 draws at both Olympiacos and Juventus on matchday five. They drew 1-1 at Chelsea FC in the round of 16 first leg, winning the return 3-0. They have therefore conceded only one away goal in this season's competition.

• Barcelona's record away to Serie A clubs is W6 D10 L6. They are without a win in their last six trips (D4 L2).

• Barcelona have won five of their last 15 away matches in the competition, drawing five and losing five. They have lost three of their last eight away games in the UEFA Champions League, including the 4-0 defeat at Paris in last season's round of 16 first leg and the ultimately crucial 3-0 quarter-final first-leg loss at Juve.

• The defeat at Juventus in last season's quarter-final first leg is Barcelona's only reverse in their last 11 meetings with Serie A sides, home and away (W6 D4).

• Barcelona have won 38 of the 41 UEFA competition ties in which they won the first leg at home, although they lost the most recent, against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2015/16 quarter-finals (2-1 home, 0-2 away). The other two defeats came against English clubs: in the 1983/84 European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final against Manchester United FC (2-0 home, 0-3 away) and in the 1982 UEFA Super Cup against Aston Villa FC (1-0 home, 0-3 away).

• Barcelona's shoot-out record in UEFA competition is W5 L1:
5-4 v KKS Lech Poznań, 1988/89 European Cup Winners' Cup second round
0-2 v FC Steaua Bucureşti, 1985/86 European Cup final
5-4 v IFK Göteborg, 1985/86 European Cup semi-final
4-1 v RSC Anderlecht, 1978/79 European Cup Winners' Cup second round
3-1 v Ipswich Town FC, 1977/78 UEFA Cup third round
5-4 v AZ Alkmaar, 1977/78 UEFA Cup second round

Match facts

Matchday memories: Classic last-eight moments

• Diego Perotti and Kostas Manolas will incur a ban with their next bookings.

• The first-leg loss at Barcelona ended Roma's five-match unbeaten run in all competitions (W4 D1). They suffered another defeat on Saturday, going down 2-0 at home to ACF Fiorentina.

• The Giallorossi have won three of their last five home matches, losing the other two, and before that run had failed to win in four games at the Stadio Olimpico (D1 L3) Overall at home this season Roma's home record is W12 D2 L7.

• Eusebio Di Francesco's side have scored three or more goals six times at home so far this season.

• Roma have kept clean sheets in two of their last three home matches, having not managed one in the previous six. They have recorded nine clean sheets in 21 home fixtures in 2017/18, including in all four UEFA Champions League outings.

• Barcelona are unbeaten in their last 38 Liga games (W31 D7), equalling the all-time record set by Real Sociedad de Fútbol between 1979 and 1980 (W21 D17).

• Barcelona have won only one of their last four away games, drawing the other three.

• Since losing 2-0 at Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup on 16 August, Barcelona's away record is W14 D9 L1. They have scored in all but four of their 25 away games this season, drawing 0-0 at Juventus and Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League group stage and losing at Madrid and RCD Espanyol (0-1) in the Copa del Rey quarter-final first leg on 17 January, and have kept 14 clean sheets.

• Only five of Barcelona's 79 goals in this season's Liga have come in the first 15 minutes.

• Luis Suárez has eight goals in his last 12 matches for club and country. His first-leg goal against Roma was his first in the UEFA Champions League since 8 March 2017; his last 11 goals in the competition have come at the Camp Nou.

• Paco Alcácer got his first Liga goal since 4 November in Barcelona's 2-0 defeat of Athletic Club on 18 March.

• The Espanyol loss was Ernesto Valverde side's first defeat in all competitions since the Spanish Super Cup second-leg loss at Real Madrid. The Blaugrana's record since that Madrid loss is W36 D11 L1.

• Sergio Busquets (out since 14 March, metatarsal) and Nélson Semedo (out since 24 February, hamstring) returned from injury in the first leg, although Busquets missed the Leganés match.

• Barça will play Sevilla FC at the Estadio Metropolitano, home of Atlético Madrid, in the Copa del Rey final on 21 April. Barcelona have won the trophy in the last three seasons.

Head coach Only this chapter

Eusebio Di Francesco

Date of birth: 8 September 1969
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Empoli FC, AS Lucchese-Libertas, Piacenza FC (twice), AS Roma, AC Ancona, Perugia Calcio
Coaching career: SS Virtus Lanciano 1924, Pescara Calcio, US Lecce, US Sassuolo Calcio (twice), AS Roma

• A pacy winger known as 'Turbo', Di Francesco came through Empoli's youth system, making his Serie A debut in 1987/88. His career really took off at Piacenza between 1995 and 1997, when he earned himself a move to Roma. Transformed into a midfielder by Zdeněk Zeman, he spent four seasons at the Stadio Olimpico, winning the 2000/01 Scudetto although he played only five games that campaign.

• Having retired in 2005 after two more seasons at Piacenza and spells with Ancona and Perugia, Di Francesco – who won 12 caps for Italy – spent a year as a Roma director but the lure of coaching proved strong; that new venture began in his native Abruzzo, first with a brief stint at Lanciano before two campaigns with Pescara.

• Was appointed Lecce coach ahead of 2011/12 for his first Serie A experience, though it proved brief as Di Francesco was sacked after just 13 matches with his side bottom of the table.

• Dropped back into Serie B the following season; a huge Zeman fan, Di Francesco – named after Portuguese legend Eusébio – had a brilliant start with Sassuolo using his mentor's 4-3-3 system and led the team from the Modena area into Serie A for the first time.

• Di Francesco, whose son Federico plays as a winger for Bologna, coached Sassuolo in Serie A for four consecutive campaigns, although the first featured a short interruption as he was replaced for five games by Alberto Malesani, only to return and help the side avoid relegation. Known for his entertaining attacking football, Di Francesco steered Sassuolo to a first UEFA Europa League qualification by finishing sixth in Serie A in 2015/16 before replacing Luciano Spalletti as Roma coach in June 2017.


Ernesto Valverde

Date of birth: 9 February 1964
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career: Deportivo Alavés, RCD Espanyol, FC Barcelona, Athletic Club, RCD Mallorca
Coaching career: Athletic Club (twice), RCD Espanyol, Olympiacos FC (twice), Villarreal CF, Valencia CF, FC Barcelona

• Known as 'Txingurri' – or worker ant – as a player, former striker Valverde scored 44 goals in 170 appearances over a six-year stay with Athletic. Had previously helped Espanyol to a third-place Liga finish in 1987 and an appearance in the following season's UEFA Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

• Began coaching career in Athletic's youth ranks before stepping up to handle first-team affairs with the Basque club in 2003/04; guided the Leones to UEFA Cup qualification in his first term in charge.

• Valverde again found himself losing a UEFA Cup final on penalties in 2007 – this time as coach of Espanyol – with Liga rivals Sevilla FC emerging victorious in Glasgow.

• In his first season outside Spain, steered Olympiacos to a Greek league and cup double in 2008/09 before signing a one-year deal with Villarreal in June 2009. Was sacked the following January with the Yellow Submarine in tenth.

• Rejoined Olympiacos in August 2010, lifting another championship at the end of his first campaign. Added a second domestic double the next year but then stood down, taking the Valencia helm in December 2012 on a deal until the end of the season. Reappointed by Athletic in June 2013 and took them to fourth in the Liga in his first term back, winning the 2015 Spanish Super Cup with a 5-1 defeat of Barcelona – where he succeeded Luis Enrique as head coach in May 2017.
