Red Devils rampant in Rome
manchester United won both legs of their tie with Roma

Manchester United's quarter-final trip to Roma in 2007 resulted in ugly scenes inside the Stadio Olimpico, with 11 travelling fans being taken to hospital after clashes with baton-wielding Italian police.

There was no repeat in 2008 on an evening of triumph for Sir Alex Ferguson's team.

Cristiano Ronaldo headed United ahead and Wayne Rooney added a second goal, while Edwin van der Sar denied Mirko Vucinic.

Roma's Daniele de Rossi missed from the penalty spot at Old Trafford before Carlos Tevez scored a diving header to book United's passage to the last four.
