Edin Dzeko strikes as Roma defeat Shakhtar, advance to UCL quarters

Edin Dzeko strikes as Roma defeat Shakhtar, advance to UCL quarters

Roma did not initially improve from the restart but, when the Shakhtar defence switched off the first time, a clear chance finally fell for Dzeko and he made no mistake.

The resulting dispute led to several skirmishes among players on both sides, culminating in a freaky scene in which a ballboy was pushed over the advertising hoarding by a Shakhtar player.

It took Dzeko just 22 seconds to work Andriy Pyatov for the first time, but Shakhtar would not bow easily to the hosts' early pressure and were soon knocking the ball around with confidence in the Roma half.

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

"We managed to do something we'd been missing for over 10 years", he said.
