ROME (AP) Roma beat 10-man Feyenoord 2-1 in a highly charged Europa League match that was briefly suspended twice due to fan trouble on Thursday.

The four other Italian clubs - Inter Milan, Napoli, Fiorentina and Torino - also advanced to the last 16, while five-time European champion Liverpool was eliminated 5-4 on penalties at Besiktas.

Fresh off helping Ivory Coast to the African Cup of Nations title, Gervinho scored the winner for Roma from close range on the hour mark.
