Shakhtar Donetsk vs AS Roma Prediction & Tips
Last Sunday’s match against Parma should have taught Roma a lot: woe to take a commitment lightly, to think that it can be “simple”, to underestimate the opponent. The defeat against the last in the standings of our league, if nothing else, could have served the Giallorossi in view of the second leg of the Round of 16 of the Europa League. Yes, because after the 3-0 first leg Mister Fonseca probably would have had to “hammer” on his players to prevent them from considering the practice closed, so instead there will be no need to insist too much. Hoping that the Parma lesson was served …
In the first leg Roma proved to be far superior to Shakhtar Donetsk and the result (3-0) speaks for itself …
But beware of Shakhtar, who in the Champions League group stage was able to score five goals for Real Madrid in two games!
In the Round of 32 of the Europa League, on the other hand, the Ukrainians beat Maccabi Tel Aviv both in the first leg and in the second leg.
In the first leg they managed to score two away goals (0-2), in the return one one at home was enough (1-0).
Roma, on the other hand, gave a great show of strength against an opponent as rated as Braga: 0-2 in Portugal and 3-1 at the Olimpico.
Shakhtar will have to try to clear the game quickly to hope to overturn a result like the 3-0 of the first leg, but this could expose the Ukrainians to the lethal yellow and red counter-attack. We are focusing on the Goals option, which should still qualify the players of Mister Fonseca unless there are sensational scores.
