AS Roma v FC Barcelona - UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Leg Two

Barcelona suffered a shock Champions League exit to Roma on Tuesday night. A shock because Barca had a 4-1 lead from the first leg, but let’s not kid ourselves Roma deserve their place in last four.

Unsurprisingly Barcelona’s exit is making headlines all over Europe. Let’s have a look at what the press are saying about Ernesto Valverde’s side.

The Fall of Roma - is the headline from Mundo Deportivo who note how it’s a third straight quarter-final KO for Barca.
Total Failure in Europe is Marca’s approach and they also look out how Pep Guardiola was also dumped out.
Imperial! Is the headline from La Gazzetta dello Sport who report how Roma overthrew Barca
Plenty of black on Sport’s front page as they talk about No Excuses for Failure
Roma Make History - is the Corriere dello Sport’s headline
Cule Bump say AS who also run with Valverde saying Roma played how they wanted
The match is big news in France too. L’Equipe go for Romantada
L’Esportiu’s headline doesn’t really need translating...
