Champions League scores, highlights: PSG rolls; Barcelona held; Roma crushes Chelsea

Radja Nainggolan

Central defender Kostas Manolas, who had come on as a late substitute, nearly became the next Roma name on the score sheet with a bullet header, but Courtois pulled off a spectacular reaction save to deny the Greek global.

Stephan El Shaarawy scored one of the best goals you'll see in the Champions League this season on Tuesday night.

Antonio Conte's Premier League winners are finding things far more hard on the pitch than they experienced last season when they cruised to glory.

"In London, we saw a attractive Roma and tomorrow I want to see the same mentality", said boss Eusebio di Francesco. The Frenchman's presence would make it a lot less easy for Roma to dominate the centre of the park as they did last time out. The ball fell to the winger after some good target man work from Edin Dzeko and the Italian struck a thunderbolt of a shot with the outside of his right foot, before watching it fly past Thibault Courtois in the Chelsea goal.

Hazard - who scored a brace in the first leg along with Dzeko - was omnipresent early for Chelsea with Alisson saving twice at the near post, Alvaro Morata also missing an opportunity in front of goal for the English champions.

Radja Nainggolan's chipped pass forward was horribly misjudged by Rudiger, who let the ball run past him and El Shaarawy stole in to finish tidily.

A Tiemoue Bakayoko header looked unsafe but Alisson dived to clear four minutes before the break.

And Argentine Perotti could have made it 4-0 minutes later as unmarked he fired over an empty net.

The London side's troubles have also been linked to their underwhelming transfer window while their league rivals spent heavily to significantly boost their squads. In a unsafe attempt at playing out from the back Aleksandar Kolarov passed straight to the feet of the Chelsea striker who somehow blazed a shot over the crossbar from five yards out.

Roma next travel to Atletico Madrid with Chelsea facing the long trip to Qarabag in Azerbaijan.
