Iniesta: Roma defeat might be my last Champions League match

"When you do things badly, make lots of mistakes and don't adapt to the game, this is what happens. It is a massive disappointment given the season we had been having".

Barcelona entered the match holding a 4-1 advantage from the first leg at Camp Nou but were eliminated from the competition via the away goals' rule. "Right now we feel bad". "We had high hopes this season and it has escaped us again", Iniesta said.

Barca's passage into the semi-finals looked assured after they won the first leg 4-1 but they gave their worst performance this season at the Olympic Stadium.

Liverpool have gone from strength to strength since the 25-year-old left the club, as they look likely to qualify for the last four of the Champions League, while they have nearly made sure of a top four finish in the Premier League.

They are unbeaten in the Primera Liga and had only previously lost once all season, to Espanyol in the Copa del Rey. "It is a very sad way to fall after the result we had". They've got good players, though, and we have to be ready for that.

The agreement was signed by UNWTO Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili and Barca President Josep Maria Bartomeu. Yet, Reds fans took joy from seeing Barcelona exit the tournament.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah celebrates scoring his team's opening goal. Although a different competition, Roma didn't have the ideal preparation for this fixture by losing at home to Fiorentina in Serie A.

Jurgen Klopp has beaten Pep Guardiola more times than any other manager, with Tuesday's 2-1 second-leg win taking the tally to seven victories from 13 meetings.
