AS Roma have defeated the spanish champions and also one of the favourites Real Madrid in the round of 16 at the UEFA champions league.The only consolation for Real on a miserable night was that they can take the away goal in the second goal which is to be played at the santiago Benabeau.Real had failed to progress beyond the quarter final in the last three years but this time they had hoped to change it.Raul Gonzalez opened it for Real but David Pizarro levelled up the game before Roberto Mancini's second half strike handed out the victory for Real Madrid.Roma coach was very happy for his players and congratualted all those who had played in the game.It looks like Real have their task cut out in the second leg.
