Reaction from Barça coach Jonatan Giráldez
“When you get to the quarter-finals, any tie is tough. Whilst Roma are making their first appearance in the competition, they are going very well in the Italian league. They gave Wolfsburg a fright and we know it will be a competitive tie. We have looked at their team and we have to prepare well to go into the tie in good shape."
