Kostas Manolas capped a sensational Roma comeback as the Italian side shocked Barcelona 3-0 in Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg to progress on away goals after the tie finished 4-4 on aggregate.

Edin Dzeko’s early goal at the Stadio Olimpico gave Roma hope of overturning a 4-1 deficit from the first leg before Daniele de Rossi converted a 58th-minute penalty.

Greece international Manolas completed an improbable turnaround eight minutes from time by glancing in a header from a corner.
