Lionel Messi walked off the pitch in Rome after a miserable night that saw his Barcelona team give up a three goal lead to plunge out of the Champions League to a triumphant Roma team.

Roma won by 3-0 on the night and went through on the away goal in a 4-4 tie over the two legs.

The La Liga leaders looked out of sorts throughout and even Messi couldn’t buy a goal. Roma’s Edin Dzeko and Daniele De Rossi (penalty) put their team in striking distance and then Kostas Manolas headed the winner in the 82nd minute to clinch an unlikely place in the semi-final.
