Speaking after the game, Manolas said Roma knew they could upset Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final because “if we have our crowd, nobody can beat us”.

“I don’t care about me going down in history. I care about Roma reaching the Champions League semi-final against the best team in the world, Barcelona,” Manolas told Mediaset Premium.
