AS Roma is heading to the Champions League quarter-finals courtesy of a 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Italian capital, despite losing 2-1 to the Ukrainian outfit in the first leg of this matchup.

A 52nd-minute goal by Edin Dzeko levelled the aggregate score at 2-2, which, combined with Cengiz Under's crucial first-leg goal at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv, proved enough to see the Italian outfit through on the away-goal rule.

A 79th-minute red card to Ivan Ordec all but scuppered any attempt at a comeback for Shakhtar, as Roma saw out the result with little fanfare before celebrating in front of a raucous home crowd.
