Shakhtar v Roma: Tense tie expected in Ukraine
Shakhtar Donetsk and Roma will both see their Champions League round of 16 clash as a great chance to make it into the quarter-finals.
But like most first legs, tonight’s game in Kharkiv is likely to be very tight. Neither side will want to play catch-up in the return leg.
The Ukrainian champions won all three of their home matches in the group stage, including victories against Manchester City and Napoli.
It’s a very impressive record, but Roma have only lost two matches on the road across all competitions this season.
With that in mind, the two sides could cancel each other out. The Draw and Under 3.5 Goals has potential at 16/5.
We like the look of 5/1 for a 1-1 draw at the final whistle too.
Shakhtar tend to be dominant in domestic games. But it’s not as easy against top-class sides in European competition. They’ve only kept one clean sheet in their last 12 Champions League outings.
Both Teams to Score could be a smart call at 3/4.
As for who’ll get the goals, Edin Dzeko is always dangerous for Roma. He’s 9/5 to net anytime.
Facundo Ferreyra is the home side’s biggest threat up front. The Argentine is priced at 17/10 to score at any point.
It’s all set up for a very intriguing match-up!
