Shakhtar Donetsk Preview

Shakhtar Donetsk looked decent throughout the group stage, winning four of their six fixtures, including a 2-1 home victory against Manchester City in the final match. Their Champions League home form over the past three years have seen Shakhtar lose just two of their nine fixtures. They are currently on a four-game winning streak, including solid victories against Napoli and Manchester City. In addition, the Ukrainian league resumed at the weekend after a long winter break and Shakhtar Donetsk kicked it off with a comfortable 5-0 home victory against Ch. Odessa. Shakhtar find themselves at the top of the Ukrainian Premier League table with 45 points to their name after 20 rounds, three points clear of the second-placed Dynamo Kiev. Bernard is the team’s top scorer in the competition so far with three goals under his belt, while Facundo Ferreyra have helped the team with two goals and two assists. Shakhtar Donetsk should feel confident ahead of this clash as they have won the most recent three meetings with Roma in the Champions League, keeping a clean sheet in two of these.

Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

Silva Sanches Aguiar Wellington Nem is a doubt, but Maksym Malyshev is out through injury.

Roma Preview

Roma have endured a terrible run of form in the Serie A between the middle of December 2017 to the end of January 2018, but they finally managed to steady the ship of late. The Giallorossi enter the fray on the back of a three-game winning streak in the Serie A, scoring eight goals while conceding once in the process. The bad news is that Roma have been terrible on the road in the Champions League over the past four years, having won just once in their last nine trips. Furthermore, the Italians have lost their last four games in the round of 16. Their record in Ukraine is also poor as Roma have won just once in four trips. Their recent away form have also been bad as Roma only managed two victories in their last eight competitive trips. Edin Dzeko have been Roma’s most dangerous player in front of goal during the group stage, having helped the team with three goals and two assists. Stephan El Shaarawy have also scored two goals throughout the group stage.

Roma Team News

Jonathan Silva, Luca Pellegrini, Maxime Gonalons and Rick Karsdorp are all out through injury.
