The result makes it look like a routine victory for Madrid but it was anything but that as Roma had plenty of chances to score and played really well. However, goals from Ronaldo and Jese have ensured that Real Madrid will head back to the Santiago Bernabeu with a 2 goal lead
...
FT: Roma 0 - 2 Real Madrid
...
90+1' Rudiger plays an inviting delivery into the area from the right, but it catches Dzeko by surprise as he's unable to get on the end of it.
...
...
90' three minutes have been added on
...
...
82' NO PENALTY GIVEN! Roma have a strong case to argue here, and their appeals are not as desperate as they originally appeared! Florenzi takes a pass in the area and Carvajal slides through him, getting none of the ball, but the referee turns and jogs away!
...
88' Cristiano Ronaldo is taken off for Casemiro as Real Madrid look to hold on to their 2-0 lead
...
87' The impressive Florenzi comes off as Roma legend Totti comes on
...
86' Roma 0 -2 Real Madrid
...
85' GOOOOAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Jese the super sub scores! What a run by the young Spaniard! Jese runs through the Roma defence and finishes brilliantly to give Real Madrid a 0-2 lead.
...
83' WHAT A CHANCE FOR SALAH! Florenzi plays a wonderful pass into the path of Salah who was clean through on goal, but the Egyptian's first touch lets him down
...
81' Jese comes on for James Rodrigues who has had a mixed game today
...
80' CLOSE! Dzeko is certainly onside as he's played through by Perotti, but Varane does just enough to throw the substitute off as his shot strikes the side netting! Half the stadium thought that had gone in!
...
77' Daniele De Rossi comes on for Vainqueur
...
...
76' CLOSE! Delightful cross in from James, picking out Ronaldo at the far post, and although he's on a difficult angle, he really should be scoring from there! Instead his header bounces just beyond the far post.
...
73' CLOSE! That was nearly it! Exquisite hold up play from Dzeko inside the area, fending off Varane before teeing up Vanqueur. The midfielder strikes first-time, but it swerves agonisingly wide of the far post!
...
72' CHANCE! Salah proves a menacing figure yet again, using his pace to turn Marcelo and drive into the area. He picks his head up and drives a ball across goal for Dzeko, but Varane sticks a leg out to take the ball away from the forward! It comes back to the winger, but his second attempt is blocked as well!

64' Kovacic comes on for Isco
