Roma lost 2-1 in the first match, but will use goals on a foreign field to eliminate Shakhtar Donetsk from the race. The Welsh champion is not a good guest, and it will be a real surprise if the outcome of this clash is different from a home win.
Although they came to victory after a complete turnaround, Shakhtar Donetsk did not have a good record when visiting Italian teams after losing in seven of the last 10 games. At the same time, the Donetsk team recorded four consecutive successes in the Premier League of Ukraine, keeping their network dry in every match of them, marking 16 goals. During the group stage, the team proved to be the "right" team after having managed to overcome competition in a group of Man City, Napoli and Feyenoord.
A Checo and Federico Facio missed the success of their teammates over Torino on Friday, but after they had suffered their penalties, they would return, rested on Shakhtar. Diego Perrotti is punished for a match, and Rick Karstdrop is injured, so the problems with Eusebius are exhausted.
In the Shakhtar Out camp, there are Serhiy Krivtsov and Maxim Malishev. Krivtsov was injured in the victory over Roma and Malishev was permanently injured. Facondo Ferreira and Tyson are punished for a match.
Roma is a favorite to win this match, but their defending problems may prove to be fatal in view of the counter-attacking football practiced by the Ukrainian champion. The goal difference rule will play a key role in determining the outcome of this outcome, expect the unexpected!
