Kostas Manolas, the Roma defender who turned the ball into his own net in last Wednesday’s 4-1 first-leg defeat, was the hero of Tuesday’s reverse fixture when he scored the goal that dumped Barcelona from the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Giallorossi’s 3-0 victory sent the club into the final four of Europe’s elite competition for the first time since the 1983-84 season.
