AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko says his side 'fear no one' as they await their UEFA Champions League semi-final opponent ahead of Friday's draw with the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich also vying for the final slot in Kiev next month.

Dzeko who has scored three goals in his past three Champions League games against Barcelona, more than he has netted against any other club in the competition is delighted with the stylish way Roma secured the semis ticket and says he's confident they can take on any of the other three teams.
