Ma, 19:45: AS Roma – Sahtior Donetsk

After losing both the Sahtior tour and the run in the first round, the Romanians were defeated by AC Milan in Serie A score 2-0. However, Dzeko & Co made two very solid matches with two very important results, 4-2 with Napoli and 3-0 with Torino. You currently know 3rd place in the championship with a 47-23 goal, the Romanians can concentrate quietly on this return. Their problem in the tournament was the fact that they were the goal, they made the step back and if the first half of the first half was 8-3 for them, in the second part of the match the Ukrainians managed to score twice from the 11 occasions on which and they created them. For the Olimpico match, AS Roma will not be able to rely on Karsdorp and Pellegrini, while De Rossi is uncertain and it seems hard to believe that we will see him in the first place. Their momentary shape and especially the fact that they have being able to score gives them good chances for the hosts to qualify and they are definitely preparing to get it.

On the other side Sahtior succeeded to impose itself in each of the last 6 games of all competitions, winning only one goal and one in Rome. After the tournament they played 3 games in the domestic competition, having 3 successes with Zirka score 5-0, Karpaty 3-0 and Vorskla 3-0. It is also interesting that Sahtior has been forced into each of the last four matches with Rome, out of a total of 5 disputed in history. For this game Captain Sarna is suspended and Malyshev will not be used due to injury. Even after the tour victory, the chances of the Ukrainians to qualify are quite small and they certainly know that this trip will be extremely difficult. However, we believe that the strongest team of our neighbors in the last few years will make a solid match and will not make the step back than in the case of a possible goal scored early.

Finally, we consider this game to be quite spectacular, but the goals were not only expected from the hosts. Both bands are in shape and played at an extremely high level lately. That is why we will avoid giving up on the final result, choosing instead to bet on success.
