It’s time for Europa League! Tonight at 20:00 GMT 0 at Stadio Olimpico, Roma hosts Shakhtar Donetsk in the 1st leg of the 1/8 finals of Europa League.

Flawless Roma in the 1/16 finals

Roma eliminated easily Braga in the 1/16 finals as the team beat effortlessly the Portuguese team in both legs (0-2, 3-1). Roma is currently placed 4th in the domestic league but should keep consistency in their performance, otherwise the team is risking to be removed by Atalanta. Frederico Fazio, Jordan Veretout and Jesus cannot take part in the match.

The experienced Euro-fighter Shakhtar

Shakhtar managed to qualify for Europa League knock-outs by finishing 3th in a highly competitive group in the Champions League involving Real Madrid, Inter and Borussia M. The team beat easily Maccabi Tel Aviv in the previous round (0-2; 1-0) and now Shakhtar is ready to face a more difficult challenge – Roma.

Final thoughts

Despite the superiority of Roma, we think that Shakhtar has good chances to score an away goal. Roma, on the other side, has a brilliant attack this season and it is very likely to score too. We expect to see goals on both nets.
