PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! OH MY GOOD FREAKING LORD. ROMA 3 - 0 BARCELONA!

THAT IS ONE OF THE GREAT CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TIES OF OUR TIMES. ROMA UTTERLY, TOTALLY, COMPLETELY DESERVED THIS AND THEY HAVE BEATEN THE UNBEATABLE BARCELONA! THIS IS SOMETHING ELSE. TAKE A BOW, YOU GLADIATORS YOU

That's all from me, Anirudh Menon, as I gather my fucking breath about me. MY GOD, HOW I LOVE THIS GAME! 

Toodle-ooo!
...
93' Suarez offside. OFFSIDE. THE OLIMPICO IS ROARING....
...
92' HOW THE HELL HAVE THEY ALLOWED IT! Three Barca players are offside, there's no whistle, no flag, as Pique charges onto a ball everyone thought to be dead... but Alisson is alive to the threat and gets to it before Pique. The ball makes its way to Dembele... who smashes it onto the roof of the net. On the outside
...
91' FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON! Strootman plays in El Sharaawy, but Alba does ever so well to take it away from him
...
90' OH MY! Roberto curls a regulation cross right into Alisson's hands and he clutches at it like a first-time father would his newborn.  
...
89' OH! Daniele De Rossi does sublimely well to hold the play up before playing it to Kolarov. The Serb, though, does the senseless thing and runs at Barca, losing out to Umtiti... Barca counter via Messi, the ball reaches Suarez; and his shot is straight at Manolas. 
...
88' OH MY LORD, MESSI HAS TURNED THE FUCK UP FINALLY! He wriggles past four, passes it out Alba, takes the ball off him, tries to find the assorted mass of blue in the middle but can only pick out that rock of a man Manolas. 
...
87' OH! ROMA LIVING DANGEROUSLY NOW! The corner bounces out to Messi, who jinks past three, lifts it past two... but can only guide a weak, unbalanced shot into Alisson's hands!
...
86' OH! MY! LORD! Dembele ghosts past Kolarov, running onto a Messi ball but Manolas does ever so well to smack it clear for a corner ahead of a charging Pique. By the by, Paco's on for Busquets
...
85' Oh Under! The Turk smashes past Alba like he doesn't exist... but sends the ball into orbit. Meanwhile, Valverde's seen enough and Dembele and Paco Alcacer have been thrown on for Semedo and... I'll tell you as sooon as I find out
...
What a header, oh my good lord, what a header. Kolarov sent in another one of his laser guided missiles intot he box and Manolas did oh so well to glance it brilliantly past Ter Stegen. What a header! The guys with the own goals in the Nou Camp, now have the two that could make the difference. 
...
83' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! MANOLAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!
...
82' Under wins a corner off Umtiti.... 
...
80' Iniesta off, Andre Gomes on... Barca want legs, and height, and something... as they cling on  desperately. De Rossi plays in Under with yet another simple ball in behind, but Umtiti does well to track the young Turk's run and smother his shot. 
...
79' ... AND OH MY LORD! EL SHARAAWY, ALMOST! First De Rossi almost found Under with a lovely ball, but the ball went out to Florenzi, whose ball into the deep was an absolute peach - and EL SHARAAWY DOES SUPERBLY TO GUIDE IT AT GOAL, WHERE TER STEGEN PULLED OFF A STUNNING REFLEX SAVE!
...
78' OH MY LORD! Messi is trying, but Roma are just so tight on him... he tries one of his trademark across the face of the box runs but he's stopped in his tracks by De Rossi. Oh, El Sharaawy had come on for Nainggolan during the break of play caused by Fazio's ball...
...
77' Suarez hobbles back to his feet, of course, he does, but as Roma move forward Florenzi is sold short, or long, by a useless ball up forward by Fazio. 
...
76' Suarez has got a whack on the face from Jesus... not as enlightening that as it would seem... and he needs attention. Considering the state of the scoreline, I'd hazard a guess in saying that he needs a lot of attention
...
75' EI UNDER! The Turk is played in after more magnificent holdup work from Dzeko, but the young man sends his curler a mile over the bar. 
...
74' OH MESSI! Iniesta slips him in immediately - after Roma screw up their passing out from the back - but his shot is straight at Alisson!
...
72' OOOO, a different approach now from Di Francesco as he takes off the impressive Patrick Shick for Cengiz Under
...
71' OH DE ROSSI you beauty you. He picks out Dzeko with a peach of a ball, but the Bosnian's just a touch offside when he collects the ball!
...
70' Roma are still chasing everything like a pack of rabid dogs. It takes a moment of startling calm from Busquets to nullify their pressure and restart the Roman boos. Before long, though, Semedo sends a useless ball floating into the hands of Alisson. 
...
69' UFF! Kolarov curls it in, Pique thumps it out... from the throw, Strootman curls beautifully into the far post where De Rossi beats Alba in the air, but can't direct his header on target. CLOSE AGAIN!
...
68' CORNER FOR ROMA... by god, the atmosphere in Rome is quite something.
