Real Madrid Beaten as Roma Come From Behind

Real Madrid was beaten by Roma 1-2 after a recovery of the latter from being a goal behind in the Champions League last 16 first leg match.

They first took the lead through Raul Gonzales' goal in the 7th minute and dominated the majority of the possession in the first half. On the 23rd minute, David Pizarro sent in Mancini's cut back. Roma then turned the game around on the 57th minute as Alessandro Mancini rounded Casillas and shot home a goal.
