Barcelona coach Valverde full of praise for Dembele after Leganes victory

Barcelona's Lionel Messi reacts after missing a scoring chance during the Champions League quarterfinal second leg soccer match between Roma and FC Barcelona at Rome's Olympic Stadium Tuesday

And coach Valverde had no excuses for the Blaugrana, acknowledging that they were outplayed by Eusebio Di Francesco's Roma.

Derby fell victim to a hair-raising comeback in 1975 when they capitulated in front of a crowd of 120,000 at the Bernebeu against Real Madrid.

Valencia forward Rodrigo and 'keeper Neto were among the top performers, with the former scoring in his fifth successive league game during a 1-0 win over Espanyol. Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta also remain from the side that started in Rome that night. "What's clear is that Roma had a good match and played how they wanted, while we had many difficulties", continued Valverde.

If they need further inspiration, here's Rob Bagchi, with the best ever second leg recoveries in European ties.

"Sometimes we have beautiful seismic recordings from rock concerts, particularly Bruce Springsteen or U2", he said.

"For us, it's about getting players into the first team".

The world-renowned footballing ethos of Manchester United has taken a beating since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, but that passion and pride was on full display last Saturday in the Manchester Derby - perhaps the game of the season in the EPL. Barca have done it twice.

Edin Dzeko struck early to give Roma hope and Daniele de Rossi added a second-half penalty.

Despite their amazing levels, these legends are never tired of improving their games.

The very first World Cup in 1930 was held in Uruguay and won by the hosts, who beat Argentina 4-2 in a memorable final at the Centenary Stadium in Montevideo. His flicks and touches are exquisite and make him hard to mark and when on song, he looks a class above everyone in midfield.

The numbers illustrate the strength of Valverde's side, too.

None of them, though, took on the job in the same circumstances as Valverde. "When he steps on that grass...well, we could pass the whole year talking about Messi".
