AS Roma vs Shakhtar Donetsk Prediction & Betting tips
Entertaining game is what awaits us this Tuesday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, when Rome receives the visit of Shakhtar Donetsk of Ukraine, in game corresponding to the return of the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.
Those led by Eusebio di Francesco made a good first stage in the first leg to the point that they went into halftime with the 0-1 victory, but the second part was quite the opposite and the Ukrainian team turned it over to finish winning 2- 1, this defeat affected the confidence of the team and then another defeat came before Milan 0-2 playing at home, but happily the Roman team has managed to recover in their last games and so it comes to win 2-4 on their visit to Naples and now last a 3-0 over Torino results that puts them in the UEFA Champions League qualifying zone and fills them with a lot of confidence to turn a series where it will be enough to win 1-0 to continue in competition and what better way to do it than local where the Giallorossi in this season in the UEFA competition does not know of defeats and eye that faced teams like Atlético Madrid and Chelsea.
Meanwhile no one can deny the good performance shown by the Portuguese Paulo Fonseca, so Shakhtar comes from winning 0-3 in his visit to Vorskla Donetsk and in this way not only continue as leader in the Ukrainian Premier League with a nine points advantage over Dinamo Kiev, but add a streak of five consecutive victories taking as reference all the competitions and are now decided to go to the Italian capital to ratify his great moment.
The theme for Shakhtar is his poor performance away from home especially when we refer to UEFA competitions, so the Ukrainian team has just won one of their last seven outings in the UEFA Champions League where six of them were defeats and here is included his last visit to Italian soil that was last year when he lost to Naples 3-0.
