Shakhtar Donetsk – AS Roma : Preview & Prediction
The winner of this Shakhtar – Roma will be a poison for the big favorites of the Champions League. It must be said that if it does not do a lot of talking, this double confrontation will put in conflict two formations now broken European jousts, whose campaign has been conducted for the moment. Led by their colony of Brazilian players, the men of Paulo Fonseca even allowed themselves to drop Manchester City in front of their public (2-1) in the group F, to finally qualify without problem in front of Naples, leader of Serie A … Third in the Calcio, Dzeko and his partners have also made a convincing first part of the European campaign, notably marked by an impressive double confrontation against Chelsea (3-0 in Italy, 3-3 at Stamford Bridge). On a series of three consecutive successes in the league, Louve finds this LDC at the best time. If the Ukrainians are clearly favorites so much ability to be on their ground is impressive, it is felt that this round of 16 first leg can quickly turn into an epic match!
There were at least three goals scored in 5 of Shakhtar’s 6 games in Group F.
More than 2.5 goals have been scored in eight of the last nine games played by Ukrainians in front of their home crowd.
No less than 35 goals have been scored in the Champions League’s last eight trips to the Champions League, ie 4.4 per game …
The truce has just ended in Ukraine and Shakhtar has resumed with a scathing 5-0. The team shaped by Paulo Fonseca is clearly ready to bend the Italian defense.
It is expected that a crazy game on Wednesday in the heart of a Dombass Arena where the goals have rained in the Champions League for several years (33 in the last nine games). Roma have clearly the offensive arguments (Dzeko, El Shaarawy, Ünder …) to shake the nets of Shakhtar but will suffer in the face of the strength of the middle almost 100% Brazilian men Paulo Fonseca also counting a lot on the Argentine Facundo Ferreyra to make the difference. As in five of Shakhtar’s six LDC matches in Group F, we’ll see at least the nets tremble three times!
