A pair of own goals by Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas helped Barcelona beat Roma 4-1 in the opening leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday (Apr 4).
Luis Suarez scored his first Champions League goal in more than a year as Barcelona beat Roma convincingly in the quarter-final first leg.
Barca benefitted from two own goals to take control of the tie. First Daniele de Rossi slid into his own net in a bid to keep the ball away from Lionel Messi, and then Kostas Manolas bundled another in, with Gerard Pique tapping in Barcelona's third. Edin Dzeko gave Roma hope - but Suarez then slammed home from 14 yards.
Barca are strong favourites to clinch their first semi-final spot since 2014-15, when they won the tournament, next Wednesday at the Stadio Olimpico.
