'Greek God' Kostas Manolas Reduced To Tears During The Singing Of 'Grazie Rome'

The unthinkable happened at the Stadio Olimpico, last night.

AS Roma had to turn around a three-goal deficit following the 4-1 defeat to Barcelona at the Camp Nou. And the Serie A outfit produced an incredible result, beating Lionel Messi and co. 3-0 on the night.

Edin Dzeko, who also netted in the first-leg, opened the scoring in just the sixth minute, giving the hosts a glimmer of hope.

The ex-Manchester City striker was then awarded a penalty with Danielle De Rossi converting the spot-kick, doubling his sides advantage just before the hour mark.

Kostas Manolas popped up to score AS Roma's third goal, securing a spot in the Champions League semi-finals, dumping out Barcelona in the process.

Manolas' celebration painted a beautiful picture.
