The draw determined the Pitmen's opponents against Maccabi from Tel Aviv, in the confrontation with which Shakhtar were the favorites. This status was eventually justified. With a total score of 3:0, the Donetsk club beat the rival. However, already in the first match with Roma, the chances of getting to the quarterfinals dropped almost to zero. The 0:3 defeat in Rome can already be seen as a verdict.
In the Ukrainian Premier League, Shakhtar are currently second in the table and are four points behind the leader represented by Dynamo Kiev. The 4:0 victory over Desna in the last round became the Pitmen's 11th victory of the season.
In Serie A "Roma" continues to fight for a place in the Champions League, while the "wolves" are on the sixth line in the table. At the same time, there is a gap of two points from the fourth Atalanta, which can be overcome in the next round. Roma dropped out of the first four due to a 0:2 defeat to Parma in the last round, which interrupted the Romans' streak of three victories in a row.
It is obvious that at home Shakhtar will strive to take revenge. There are definitely chances for success, given that Roma have consistently lost in Ukraine in the previous three matches against the Pitmen. In addition, the "wolves" have been regularly failing in defense lately.
We believe that hosts have a better chance of success. Forecast is Asian handicap (0) at Shakhtar. In bookmaker 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 2.04.
The result of the first meeting obliges Shakhtar to play only to win and the Pitmen will definitely take risks, so it will be very difficult for Roma to stay dry. The match will probably turn out to be open, in which we expect at least three goals scored.
Our second bet will be over 2.5 goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.82.
