Match facts

Roma

  • Roma's round of 16 record is W2 L3. They beat Olympique Lyonnais (2006/07) and Real Madrid CF (2007/08) in their first two appearances, but have since lost to Arsenal FC (2008/09), Shakhtar (2010/11) and Madrid (2015/16).
  • Roma have lost their last five matches in the round of 16. They were beaten 2-0 both home and away by Madrid two seasons ago.
  • Roma's record at home to visitors from Ukraine is therefore W2 L2. Overall against Ukraine clubs it is W3 L6. That 2010/11 tie with Shakhtar is their sole knockout contest before this one.

Shakhtar Donetsk

  • Since that 2011 win against Roma, Shakhtar have lost on both their last-16 appearances: against Borussia Dortmund in 2012/13 (2-2 home, 0-3 away), FC Bayern München in 2014/15 (0-0 home, 0-7 away). The second-leg loss to Bayern is their heaviest European defeat.
  • The Ukrainian side have therefore lost their last two round of 16 away games in the UEFA Champions League, conceding ten goals and scoring none.
  • Shakhtar had won their previous five European away games before losing at City, and have been victorious in nine of their last 13 matches outside Ukraine, losing the other four.

Predictions

Though behind on aggregate, Roma are in a good position after that first leg. A win to nil will book their place in the quarter-finals, and with Shakhtar poor away from home in this competition, there is a good reason Roma are favourites.

Final Score 2 - 0
