Watch: Roma Defeat Barcelona 3-0 In Major Champions League Shock

Watch: Roma Defeat Barcelona 3-0 In Major Champions League Shock

Whatever your affiliation, it is safe to say that the the majority of football fans chose the wrong Champions League quarter-final second leg tie to watch tonight.

While Liverpool surprised many in beating Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, it was assumed that Barcelona - boasting a 4-1 lead from the first leg - would finish off the job against Roma in Rome.

Not so.

Taking the lead early through former City man Edin Dzeko, he would also win the penalty that Daniele De Rossi converted for 2-0.

With many still uncertain whether they could get that third and potentially tie-winning goal, Kostas Manolas proved to be the hero; popping up with a header that deceived the Barcelona back-line.

This is a headline outlining perhaps the arrogance that was Barcelona's undoing.

You can watch each of the goals below.
