Though Barcelona were far from their usual best on Wednesday night they were still unstoppable in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

 Luis Suarez scored his first Champions League goal of the season to earn Barcelona a 4-1 victory over Roma 

The Catalans were not at their sparkling best but still proved far too good for Roma, who were unfortunate to score two own goals through Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas before Gerard Pique added a third.
