Roma v Shakhtar Donetsk betting preview

Diego Perotti fired straight at Pyatov as Roma chased a second and Dzeko then nearly struck again with a wonderful curling shot that just faded wide, before Shakhtar redoubled their efforts.

Shakhtar were defending a 2-1 lead from the first leg in Kharkiv, where they had come from behind.

Roma are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2008 after beating Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 in their second-leg tie at the Stadio Olimpico thanks to a magnificent finish by Edin Dzeko, which sent them through on the away goal they scored in a 2-1 defeat in the first leg.

The Serie A outfit were back in the contest just seven minutes after the restart, however, when the visiting defence was caught out by Kevin Strootman's ball over the top and Dzeko ran through on goal to slot under Pyatov into the back of the net.

The Champions League round of 16 completes on Wednesday, and the draw for the quarterfinal round will take place on Friday, with no restrictions placed on which teams can be paired together.

Dzeko then curled a shot from the edge of the penalty area inches wide in the 62nd minute before the Shakhtar centre-back Ivan Ordets was shown a straight red card in the 79th for hauling down the Bosnian when he was through on goal.

"I'm proud of this team because I think we knocked out a very strong team".

"I was glad to see so many people in the stands cheering us on, suffering together and relishing every moment".

Roma hadn't conceded in its three Champions League matches at the Stadio Olimpico this season but almost netted an own goal when Alessandro Florenzi tried to head clear a free kick but sent the ball flashing across the face of goal.

"In terms of organisation, I think we are doing much better and we worked on a few set-play routines too".

A small scuffle between players broke out 10 minutes before full time after Facundo Ferreyra pushed a ballboy over the advertising boards when trying to retrieve the ball from him.

The champions of Ukraine went for broke in the final five minutes of the match, knowing an equaliser would send them through to the last eight, but the Eternal City outfit held on for a narrow victory.
