Dzeko edges Roma past Shakhtar

  • Roma will have to overturn the 2-1 loss when they play Shakhtar Donetsk at home this week

A 1-0 win, after a 2-1 defeat in Kharkiv, took Roma through on away goals as Dzeko scored seven minutes into the second half with the game's first chance of note.

Having trailed 2-1 from the first leg, Roma looked bereft of ideas for much of the contest at the Stadio Olimpico before Dzeko broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute following a tepid first half devoid of goal-mouth action.

Dzeko also curled a shot from the edge of the penalty area inches wide in the 62nd minute before Shakhtar centre back Ordets was shown a straight red card in the 79th for hauling down the Bosnian when he was through on goal.

Eusebio Di Francesco's side is the second Italian team to advance to the quarter-finals after Juventus, with the draw for the last eight taking place on Friday.

Manchester United had David de Gea to thank for a battling 0-0 draw in Sevilla, but will be hoping to spend more time on the front foot at Old Trafford.

The Spanish outfit progressed to the quarter-finals for the first time in their history, with goals from substitute Wissam Ben Yedder in the 74th and 78th minutes.

"I'm proud of this team because I think we knocked out a very strong team". "Among the eight best sides in Europe and we push onto the next round".

Kevin Strootman hooked a hopeful pass forward to set his team-mate away, Dzeko in the clear and reaching the ball ahead of Pyatov to prod a finish through the goalkeeper's legs.

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

Shakhtar striker Facundo Ferreyra somehow escaped being sent-off after unceremoniously shoving a ballboy over the advertising boards in their Champions League clash with Roma.

"Dzeko, of course, was a key player, but apart from his goal they didn't have a chance, we had possession".

On Wednesday, it would be between Barcelona and Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Besiktas.
