AS Roma defeat Shakhtar Donetsk to enter UEFA Champions League QF

Roma Shakhtar Donetsk

The win guaranteed Roma's progress to the quarter-finals, with the Italians going through on away goals after the tie ended 2-2 on aggregate.

A ball boy lies down after being pushed by a Shakhtar player during a Champions League round of 16 second-leg soccer match between Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk, at the Rome Olympic stadium, Tuesday, March 13, 2018.

With time running out the ball went out of play, and Ferreyra went to retain it off the ball boy who retrieved it, only for the forward to push the ball boy backwards in frustration and over the advertising hoardings. The incident led to a scuffle on the pitch, but Ferreyra was not penalized for his actions.

Despite being a man down, Shakhtar launched a late onslaught and had several unsafe raids down the left but the home team's defence held on until the final whistle.

Bosnian global Edin D┼żeko opened the scoring for the Italian giants in the 52nd minute of the game.

Roma hadn't conceded in its three Champions League matches at the Stadio Olimpico this season but almost netted an own goal when Alessandro Florenzi tried to head clear a free kick but sent the ball flashing across the face of goal.

"It is not for me, but for everyone, we are deservedly in the quarterfinals".

Roma advance into the last eight of the competition, but Shakhtar's journey is over having been dumped out on away goals in Italy.

"Roma made the most of a single moment", said Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseca.

It was the first time since the 2004-05 season that Roma held a Champions League opponent without a shot on goal.

There have not been two Italian clubs in the quarter-finals of the Champions League since 2006/07 when Roma joined eventual winners AC Milan in the last eight.
