Champions League: Barcelona beat Roma, Liverpool blow Manchester City away

Gerard Pique made it three before Edin Dzeko pulled one back for the visitors, but Luis Suarez wrapped up the victory, and perhaps the tie, by adding a fourth late on.

Of course, of greater concern for Roma will be the mountain they face if they want to reach the semi-finals of this year's Champions League.

Suarez scored his first goal in the tournament since March 2017 after a Roma defender Federico Fazio tried to intercept a pass, instead leaving the ball for the Uruguay striker to drill home.

Barcelona and Liverpool both earned a comfortable 3-goal advantage against their respective opponents in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg Wedesnday. Referee Danny Makkelie saw Nelson Semedo's challenge on Dzeko in the ninth minute as legal, and determined that Samuel Umtiti's foul on Lorenzo Pellegrini was outside the area.

City regained their composure after the break, helped by Salah going off injured in the 52nd minute, but they now have a mammoth task to the turn the tie round in next Tuesday's second leg at the Etihad. We definitely could have done better, but the referee has to give the penalty at 0-0.

While he trailed for the opening 200m, Horton was always confident he had the race right where he wanted it. Canada finished second in 3:33.92 with England third nearly five seconds further back.


Umtiti celebrated Barca's second goal at the Camp Nou by pulling at his badge and pointing to it after his shot had cannoned in off the post and then Roma's Kostas Manolas.

An Iranian TV channel has taken the freaky step to blur the AS Roma badge during their Champions League coverage, in a move which will leave fans of the Serie A giants scratching their heads in confusion.

Although it was far from a typical virtuoso attacking display from Barca, who had Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets back in their starting XI after injury troubles, Suarez rejected suggestions that Ernesto Valverde's men were lucky.

"So it's a good result, although I would have preferred to win 3-0 than 4-1".

Suarez's goal ended his European drought that had stretched to Champions League 10 matches.
