Watch: De Rossi Scores Bizarre 20 Yard Own Goal In Barca Match

In case you were wondering there was another Champions League tie taking place this evening. Roma are taking on Barcelona. The game saw it's first goal in the 38th minute. Rakitic and Messi were involved, the Argentinian releasing Iniesta at the edge of the D. The Spaniard looked to pull the trigger but was beaten to the punch by Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi who, unfortunately, tackled the ball past Alisson from the edge of the box.

A terrible goal to concede for the Italian side who had kept out Messi and co. for much of the first half.
The general footballing public didn't take long to vent their amusement at De Rossi's mistake:
