Roma Preview

Roma, who topped their Champions League group C this season, are in the round of 16 for the 6th time. However, the Giallorossi are now on a perilous situation as they are obliged to score at least once here and to not conceded in order to qualify further in the competition. Their record in the round of 16 isn’t great as Roma have lost three of their last five appearances at this stage. The good news is that Roma head into this tie high on confidence following two excellent victories against Napoli and Torino in the Serie A, scoring seven goals and conceding just two in the process. The negative thing is that Roma’s home form over the past three months have been poor, as they have won just two of their last seven competitive games. Furthermore, Roma have lost their last four meetings with Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League, conceding at least two goals in three of these. Edin Dzeko is definitely the player to watch for Roma, as he netted a brace last week to increase his goalscoring tally to 13 goals in Serie A. In addition, Dzeko have netted three goals in the Champions League this season.

Roma Team News

Luca Pellegrini and Rick Karsdorp are both missing through injury.

Shakhtar Donetsk Preview

Shakhtar Donetsk looked amazing since their return from the winter break, having won each of their five competitive games. The Ukrainians managed four consecutive victories in the Ukrainian Premier League in this early part of the year and a 2-1 home win against Roma a fortnight ago. Shakhtar beat Roma 6-2 on aggregate at the same stage of the competition back in 2011, but they have lost on both their last 16 appearances since then. In addition, Shakhtar have suffered a thrashing 3-0 defeat against another Italian side this season, as they were beaten by Napoli on matchday five. Shakhtar’s away form over the past five months have been a complete mixed bag with five wins, two draws and three defeats in their last ten competitive trips. Domestically, Shakhtar Donetsk sit comfortably at the top of the Premier League table, six points more than the 2nd-placed Dynamo Kyiv. Bernard and Facundo Ferreyra have been Shakhtar’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout this Champions League campaign, having scored three goals each.

Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

Silva Sanches Aguiar Welington Nem and Maksym Malyshev are both doubts, but Sergey Krivtsov is out through an ankle injury. In addition, Darijo Srna is missing through suspension.
