Roma moved into the last eight of the Champions League on Tuesday with a 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk.
The win saw the Italian side progress on away goals after a 2-2 aggregate win, but the game was not without incident as Shakhtar’s players let their frustrations get the better of them on a number of occasions.
Former Newcastle United player Facundo Ferreyra was the main culprit, taking things into his own hands as he tried to prevent a Roma ball boy from time wasting.
The forward got himself involved in a scuffle just 10 minutes from time as the Miners chased an equaliser, when he decided to shove the kid over an advertising hoarding as he retrieved the ball.

Ferreyra was angered by the kid’s attempt at time wasting as Shakhtar chased an equaliser but, incredibly he only received a yellow card for his actions.
Hazard got suspended for kicking the ball out from under this Swansea ballboy who laid out prostrate on the ball in 2013… pic.twitter.com/TIG8laWvcg
