Dzeko inspired comeback with first goal

Roma then won a penalty kick just before the hour mark and Daniele de Rossi scored from the spot.

Dramatic Winner

Twenty-six-year-old centre back Manolas completed the remarkable turnaround by flicking home a header from a corner kick.

Absolutely stunning. Barcelona only had nine shots, three of which were on frame, and they only have 57 percent possession, which is low for them. Roma was able to let Radja Nainggolan do his job in the middle for the first hour, and then the defense, led by Manolas and Federico Fazio, played with cautious and brains to hold on to the result.
