Player of the match:

The Bosnian striker was heavily involved throughout and set up Mkhitaryan with a clever through ball after spinning, whilst they almost combined again in the second half through Dzeko’s low cross. The former player came within inches of pulling Roma level as he rattled the woodwork.
