Cengiz Under's goal and a string of Alisson saves in a 2-1 away first-leg defeat had kept Roma in the tie, and Eusebio Di Francesco's men edged to victory in the return to reach the quarter-finals despite a dismal display in which Dzeko's victor was scarcely deserved.

The Spanish outfit progressed to the quarter-finals for the first time in their history, with goals from substitute Wissam Ben Yedder in the 74th and 78th minutes.

Shakhtar's chances of producing a comeback were dealt a huge blow in the 79 minute when they were reduced to 10 men following the sending off of Ivan Ordets after straight red card.
