Edin Dzeko has promises there is ‘more to come’ from Roma in the Champions League after their shock elimination of Barcelona.
The Bosnian international striker opened the scoring for Eusebio Di Francesco’s side in Tuesday night’s remarkable 3-0 victory over the Blaugrana.
“This was the best, but even better may well be yet to come,” Dzeko told Mediaset Premium.
“It proved we can play against anyone, as Barcelona are such a strong side. We put three goals past them and could’ve had more.
“I have never seen Barcelona struggle so much. We pressed them constantly from the first minute.
“It was easier for me to play when Schick and Radja were closer to me, as it created more space and stretched out their defence. It was the first time we played with three at the back and we did great. I was very happy with this system.
“We all believed, even if everyone else gave us a five per cent chance. We knew it’d be tough to win 3-0, but now we’ve done it in such a splendid way, I can safely say Roma are deservedly in the Champions League semi-final.
“Every time we’ve faced the big clubs, we have won or got a positive result. Perhaps it’s our fault, as when we are the favourites in a tie, we think for some reason it might be easy, but it never is easy.
“Now I can play the semi-final too! It wasn’t easy, but I stayed here and am very happy to be here. I think the club is glad too!”
