Porto Defeat Roma Away, Qualify For UEFA Champions League

Italian side Roma failed to reach the Champions League group stage after having two men sent off in a 3-0 second-leg defeat by Porto.

Roma were the favourites after drawing 1-1 in Portugal, but went behind when Felipe gave the visitors an early lead.

They imploded as Daniele de Rossi and Emerson Palmieri were shown straight red cards either side of half-time.

Miguel Layun slotted in Porto’s second, before Jesus Corona turned his marker to add the third moments later.

Roma are the third Serie A team in successive years to lose in the play-off round, leaving Juventus and Napoli to represent Italy in Thursday’s group-stage draw.
