The miracle comeback happened but it happened in Rome.

Barcelona delivered their worst performance of the season and crashed out of the Champions League losing 3-0 to Roma.

Former Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko was the hero. He got the first and it was his away goal at the Camp Nou that sent Roma through on an extraordinary night.
