Shakhtar held the advantage going into Tuesday's game after winning the home leg against Roma 2-1.

Roma's goal-scorer in the 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the last-16 of Champions League, Edin Dzeko has praised the Italian side for re-writing the history books.

The Ukrainian side pushed to score a vital equalizer, but their efforts appeared to be in vain.

That sending-off led to tensions spilling over, with Shakhtar's Facundo Ferreyra picking up a booking for shoving a ballboy over an advertising board. The incident led to a scuffle on the pitch, but Ferreyra was not penalized for his actions.

Cengiz Under's goal in the first leg last month ultimately proved crucial for Roma, but Dzeko was the hero on the night and also proved instrumental in Shakhtar defender Ordets being shown a straight red card with 12 minutes left.

Roma hadn't conceded in its three Champions League matches at the Stadio Olimpico this season but almost netted an own goal when Alessandro Florenzi tried to head clear a free kick but sent the ball flashing across the face of goal.

New direct flights offered from Richmond to Nashville
Allegiant Air will be offering nonstop flights from the Eugene Airport to San Diego International Airport starting May 17. The new routes will be operated twice a week, the release states.

"We managed to do something that had been missing for 10 years", said Dzeko.

"It is not for me, but for everyone, we are deservedly in the quarter-finals", said the Bosnian after his fourth Champions League goal, and 18th in total for the club this season.

The Champions League round of 16 completes on Wednesday, and the draw for the quarterfinal round will take place on Friday, with no restrictions placed on which teams can be paired together.

Roma advance into the last eight of the competition, but Shakhtar's journey is over having been dumped out on away goals in Italy.

The Daily Mail recently reported that Fonseca is Farhad Moshiri's top target to replace Sam Allardyce as Everton manager this summer, and Toffees fans unsurprisingly had comments to make after Shakhtar's exit.
