Roma play again at home, trying to reach the third consecutive victory, having won the last two clashes for the Italian Championship, where they now occupy third place. In the last round, the team was far superior to the opponent, and with three goals scored in the second stage ended up defeating Torino. Already for the UEFA Champions League, the Italian team need a victory by the minimum score against Shakhtar Donetsk to move forward, although they were defeated in the first leg, managed to score an away goal. As they showed in their last match, Roma have been standing out for the efficiency of the offensive sector, adding seven goals in the last two games. The 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 should be the tactical formation used by the coach, who should have no problem defining the initial eleven.

In their away mathes there is a tendency for goals, since 18 of the last 26 matches have ended with Over 2,5 goals.

Shakhtar Donetsk is having a great time this season, given that, given all the competitions it contests, it has come from six consecutive victories, having conceded only one goal in that period.

Betting suggestion:

This duel marks the meeting between two teams living a slightly different realities within European football. While Rome comes from a very expressive country, home to one of the continent's hottest national championships, Shakhtar Donetsk comes from Ukraine, a country with little tradition in this sport. Nevertheless, the Ukrainian team disables of the majority of the teams of its country by the strong squad, which was clear in the first leg, when it defeated Rome. However, by having a good offensive power and playing in its domains, although we can have a balanced confrontation, it is a good option to bet on the victory of Rome.
