Roma were subsequently able to see the game out for an aggregate score of 2-2, which saw them through to the quarter-finals thanks to Under's away goal in the first leg.

Dzeko's goal allowed the Italians to win the tie on away goals.

Roma opened the scoring seven minutes into the second half when Kevin Strootman played Dzeko through on goal with a defence-splitting pass and he made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 1-0.

It is the first time in 11 years that two Italian teams are in the quarterfinals, with the draw taking place Friday.

A straight red card for Ivan Ordets in the closing stages helped the Giallorossi's cause as they reached the last eight of the Europe's elite club competition for only the fourth time in their history. "I don't have a preferred opponent: they are all strong teams, but we will play to win against anyone".

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.

The home side came out with renewed goal in the second half and Dzeko delighted Roma fans when he broke the deadlock with a trademark clinical finish.

That gave Roma confidence and it nearly doubled its lead 10 minutes later but Dzeko fired narrowly wide.

Going down to 10 men left Shakhtar in disarray and their frustration showed when Facundo Ferreyra, who scored in the first leg, plowed into a ball boy on the sideline and the youngster fell backwards over an advertising hoarding.

'Roma have had the satisfaction this year, despite some hard times, of getting into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League and we need to be proud of this.

Dzeko then looked to turn provider with an exquisite through-ball for Gerson on 73 minutes, but the Brazilian failed to test Pyatov with a poor strike from inside the box.

"The standing ovation is not for me but for everyone, we are deservedly in the quarter-finals", said Dzeko of the applause which accompanied him off the pitch.
