Roma knock Shakhtar out of Champions League

Alessandro Florenzi has called on his team to repeat their Champions League home displays

Cengiz Under's goal and a string of Alisson saves in a 2-1 away first-leg defeat had kept Roma in the tie, and Eusebio Di Francesco's men edged to victory in the return to reach the quarter-finals despite a dismal display in which Dzeko's victor was scarcely deserved.

"The standing ovation has to be for everyone, as we all did our job until the last minute and are deservedly in the quarter-finals", the striker told Mediaset Premium.

"I'm proud of this team because I think we knocked out a very strong team".

"We are among the eight best sides in Europe".

Ukraine and, specifically, Shakhtar Donetsk said goodye to UEFA Champions League in the current season.

Dzeko came close to doubling his tally just ten minutes later, but his effort drifted wide of the post.

The Bosnian took a defence-splitting pass from midfielder Kevin Strootman into his stride and beat the offside trap before he steered the ball into the far corner with the outside of his foot past advancing keeper Andriy Pyatov.

Teddy Bridgewater signs with New York Jets
Plenty of teams will look to trade up for a quarterback, including the Buffalo Bills at 12 and the Arizona Cardinals at 15. McCown started 13 games for the Jets in 2017, throwing for 2,926 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Microsoft Women Filed More Than 200 Harassment and Discrimination Complaints
Of course, Microsoft refutes the claims and only deems one of the gender discrimination complaints out of 118 of them "founded". Google also faces a similar complaint from women who taught employees' children at the company's childcare centre.

Dzeko was then brought down by Ordets who got a straight red card for his troubles, making Shakhtar's task that bit harder. "If we had finished off the chances we had in the first leg the match would already have been over".

15 - Manchester United haven't managed to score more than one goal in any of their last 15 Champions League encounters with Spanish opposition (seven goals in total).

Roma held on, and after Italy's shock failure to qualify for the World Cup, their progress to the last eight along with Juventus is a boost for the country.

In the 2010-2011 season mallenco refereed match of the Champions League between Ajax and Dinamo (2:1), then worked on the matches in the group stage of the Champions League 2012-2013 between "Dynamo" and "Port" (0:0), and in the 2015-2015 season came to Kiev for the match of 1/4 final of the Europa League between "Dnepr" and "Bruges" (1:0).

There will also be at least three Italian coaches in the quarter-finals - Di Francesco, Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus and Vincenzo Montella of Sevilla.

Antonio Conte could make that four with his Chelsea side face Barcelona on Wednesday.
