Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk have already faced 4 times in the Champions League. The team of Mircea Lucescu imposes both the first leg (3-2) and the return (3-0). The overall balance of Shakhtar against the Italian teams is instead of 5 wins, 2 draws and 13 losses.


Shakhtar Donetsk lost only one of the last 13 European home matches. Roma have won their group against all odds: better than Chelsea (second) and Atletico Madrid relegated to the Europa League.

Roma surprisingly won their group stage in front of Chelsea and Atletico Madrid. The Ukrainians finished second in their group behind Manchester City but in front of Napoli. It will be a shrewd Rome but with great unpredictability in attack that will go down tonight at 20.45 at the Metalist Stadium in Karkhiv in the first leg of the final round of the 2017-2018 Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk.
