As an added bonus Bein Sports in Aus have followed the game with 15 minutes of "Roma - Great Goals" so I'm now watching Dzeko and Kolarov knocking a few goals in. (Dzeko has scored some crackers!)

Bit of a frustrating second half but can't grumble at 4-0 away win!

As has happened before with leads, we seemed to relax too much and our passing went 'off' . The tempo dropped (not surprisingly) but we started under-hitting and miss directing straightforward passes - allowing Basel to see a little too much of the ball in risky areas.

Well that's screwed the attendance for the 2nd leg!  :D

Although we were a bit sloppy at the back I doubt that would be Pep's preferred back four if we were facing PSG or Barca.

Sane looks a bit rusty.

amazing he was back playing :o
In the end comfortable win and able to key players off early.

He scored some crackers for us too. A scorer of great goals, but his build up play & passing was not good enough.
