‘Barcelona epochal for Roma’

Roma CEO Umberto Gandini calls the Champions League Quarter-Final with Barcelona “epochal”.

The Giallorossi beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the Last 16 to set up a meeting with the Blaugrana, and the Stadio Olimpico is already sold out for the return leg on April 10.

“The Quarter-Finals are an epochal moment for Roma,” Gandini said as he arrived at a meeting of the European Club Association.

“The club’s growth path continues. We’re extremely happy that the return leg is sold out.”

It’s been 10 years since the Lupi last reached this stage, with the capital club losing 3-0 on aggregate to Manchester United in 2007-08.
