Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma Prediction 21 February 2018

Tournament: UEFA Champions League
Location: Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist
Match date: 21.02.2018 at 19:45

On February 21 2018 at 19:45 in the forthcoming regular match of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 at the Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist in Kharkiv Shakhtar Donetsk are playing against their Italian guests Roma.

The results of this couple of teams are obviously rather difficult to predict. Shakhtar proved to be difficult competitors at the group stage of the competition where they won against Feyenoord twice, outplayed Napoli and Manchester City at home and lost to them in their away matches. Shakhtar scored at least two goals in all of their home games played in the Champions League even when they played against the favorites of it. Yet, they conceded at least once every time.

Shakhtar feel rather comfortable when they have to play without the ball and their counterattacks are extremely strong. On the other hand, they also have one drawback and that’s the fact that they have only played one single game after the winter break and they outplayed Chornomorets with the devastating 5:0 score. Anyway, we are certain that Shakhtar will do their best to get some kind of a handicap before the second leg game.

As for Roma, they made it to the play-offs of the competition from the first place in a very difficult group where they participated against Chelsea and Atletico. They scored at least once in five of their six matches played and didn’t manage to do it only playing against Atletico who were extremely motivated.

Roma won’t mind if they draw this time while Shakhtar will definitely be trying their best to win. Both teams will be trying to avoid conceding and yet we don’t really think that it’s going to happen. Both teams are great in counterattacks and despite the fact that the Romans will probably be very careful, we still think that both teams are going to score at least once this time.
