Match : Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma
Competition : Champions League
Time / Date : 21:45h / 21 February 2018
Venue : Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist
Roma will go to cold Ukraine , to meet fast and technical side like Shakhtar with lots of Brasilians in the squad.
The Miners play first competive game this weekend and smash their opponent Chornomorets with 5:0 and lack of competive matches can be a problem for them.
At group stage they finish second behind Manchester City and Napoli left behind them , with that they manage to win against Pep Guardiola team at home with 2:1 with that we can understand that is not too easy to play in Ukraine.
With four wins and 2 loses , 3 of the wins was at home.
After bad spell in league ,Roma start to get back in shape and in last 3 matches they recorded 3 wins and the team start to get used to the new game tactic.
At group stage Eusebio Di Francesco’s players recorded 3 wins 2 draws and 1 lose ,but away from home they manage to win only against Karabakh with 1:2 and they conceded goals in all away games.
Maksym Malyshev (Knee-OP)
Maxime Gonalons (Calf Injury), Jonathan Silva (Medial collateral ligament injury), Rick Karsdorp (Cruciate Ligament Rupture)
H2h meetings (3S,1R)
Both team meets each other before in Champions League and Roma has no good memories ,once in a group stage and once in elimination stage.
In Ukraine is not very easy to play and Shakhtar proved this against Manchester City and now play against a comfortable rival.
