first_imgBARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Roma made the already daunting task of beating Barcelona that much harder after scoring two own goals to help the Spanish side secure a 4-1 victory in the opening leg of their Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday.The pair of own goals by Daniele De Rossi and Kostas Manolas plus some sloppy defending that allowed Gerard Pique and Luis Suarez to also score left Roma on the verge of elimination before next week’s return leg in Rome.“We committed individual mistakes and made it easier for them, and you can’t do that against Barcelona,” Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco said.With Roma reeling following its two self-inflicted wounds, Pique added a third goal for the hosts.Edin Dzeko pulled one back for Roma in the 80th minute before Suarez scored Barcelona’s fourth, breaking his streak of 10 matches without a goal in the competition.The victory extended Barcelona’s unbeaten run in the Champions League to 26 straight home matches, a streak that dates back to September 2013.“Football is game of errors, you try to make your rival commit them while you limit yours,” Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde said. “We are happy because it was a complicated match, but they showed they are a good team and we have a long way to go before we can say we are in the semifinals.”Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, left, challenges for the ball with Roma’s Kostas Manolas during a Champions League quarter-final, first leg soccer match between FC Barcelona and Roma at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, Spain, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.(AP Photo/ Manu Fernandez)Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-0 in the night’s other match after first-half goals by Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane.Roma, playing in quarterfinals for the first time in a decade, succeeded in disrupting the hosts’ ball-possession attack by pressuring up the pitch. But its defending lapses either produced or played a direct part in all four of Barcelona goals.Lionel Messi showed no signs of being slowed down by the leg muscle problem that caused him to miss two friendlies for Argentina and be reserved as a substitute at Sevilla on Saturday, when his goal in the 89th-minute secured a 2-2 draw.Messi had already forced Roma to swarm on several occasions to stop his runs before the visiting defense finally broke when Ivan Rakitic intercepted the ball near the box and started the attack that ended De Rossi’s costly error.Messi sped into the area and passed for Andres Iniesta, whose returned pass to the Argentina forward would have left him in good striking position. De Rossi stretched to cut off the pass, only for the tip of his right boot to redirect the ball into the bottom corner of the net for the 38th-minute opener.“The goal by Daniele (De Rossi) from the edge of the area, that ball only goes in once in a 100 times. It conditioned the match,” Di Francesco said.Kostas suffered similar bad luck in the 55th when his clearance of a low cross by Rakitic hit the post and ricocheted off his knee before finally crossing the goal-line.“It’s not just luck that we get own goals in our favor,” Pique said. “I think that if these goals go our way it’s because we press high, we push up in attack (and) the ball is in the opposition area more than usual in other teams’ matches.”Roma’s Diego Perotti, tries to stop Barcelona’s Luis Suarez, right, during a Champions League quarter-final, first leg soccer match between FC Barcelona and Roma at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona, Spain, Wednesday, April 4, 2018.(AP Photo/ Manu Fernandez)Pique made it 3-0 four minutes later when he only had to tap in the rebound from a save by goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who palmed a shot by Suarez right to the unmarked defender.Suarez scored his first goal in the tournament since March 2017 after a Roma defender Federico Fazio tried to intercept a pass, instead leaving the ball for the Uruguay striker to drill home.Sergio Busquets returned for Barcelona after being sidelined for three weeks with a fractured bone in his right foot.Lorenzo Pellegrini started in place of Radja Nainggolan after the Roma midfielder was ruled unfit to play because of a muscle injury he picked up over the weekend.___By JOSEPH WILSON , Associated PressMore AP Champions League coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/ChampionsLeagueTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_img All 21 Six Flags Parks in the U.S., Ranked Editors’ Recommendations Who says you can’t surf in the middle of a dusty plain?In 2015, Doug Coors (of that beer family) invested in a parcel of land 10 minutes east of Austin’s Bergstrom airport with a mission to create prime surfing in a contained environment year-round.Just over a year later, Nland Surf Park opened to the public. Is Classic French Technique Still Relevant In Today’s Culinary World? There’s Never a Bad Time to Visit Whistler, the Four-Season Outdoor Playground center_img The park is one part water fantasyland and one part training school with three different wave options – something for every level of surfer.The “Reef” is a high-performance wave for high-caliber surfers with a 35-second run rate to match. “Inside” is a medium-level option for those with a bit of experience and want to tackle waves with their friends. They also have a “Bay,” which yields easy waves for first-time surfers. Every option comes with a board rental too.Education is a big piece of the complex. The Nland Training Center hosts a variety of world-class coaches to help improve your game on the waves whether you’re a seasoned veteran or don’t know a “pop-up” from an A-Frame.”The world-class dynamics extend to their environmental impact too. In a dry landscape like Austin, the park was built to maximize water savings, capturing enough rainwater to be completely self-sustaining. It captures water in a state-of-the-art treatment system that uses two types of filtration, ozone and chlorine. According to the park, it meets or exceeds a variety of international quality standards.They add that their lagoon system has collected more than 11 million gallons of rainwater so far.The park was closed for the winter, but will open very soon for spring and summer (no solid date yet as it is dependent on the weather).
