How to Watch Roma vs. Shakhtar Donetsk

The Ukrainian giants had won the first leg 2-1 at the Donbass Arena last month, as Facundo Ferreyra and Fred scored to cancel out Cengiz Under's opener for Roma.

The visitors' Ivan Ordec was sent off with 10 minutes to go which steepened the already uphill task and just 60 seconds later, Ferreyra lost his head ever so slightly.

And with the clean sheet, Roma goalkeeper Alisson has yet to concede at the Stade Olimpico in the Champions League this season.

This sparked a brawl, as furious Giallorossi players reacted, but Ferreyra only received a yellow card.

From a possible sacrifice for his cash-strapped club in January, Edin Dzeko proved his worth to Roma Tuesday, sealing a first Champions League quarter-final berth in a decade.


Roma did not initially improve from the restart but, when the Shakhtar defence switched off the first time, a clear chance finally fell for Dzeko and he made no mistake.

Dzeko looked through on goal with only Pyatov to beat, however, Ordets did not want to take the chance of Dzeko converting and so brought him down. Or will Roma defend the Stadio Olimpico?

The Italian side booked their spot in the last eight on the away goals rule, with the tie ending 2-2 on aggregate.

There will also be at least three Italian coaches in the quarter-finals - Di Francesco, Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus and Vincenzo Montella of Sevilla. "I don't have a preferred opponent: they are all strong teams, but we will play to win against anyone".

On Wednesday, it would be between Barcelona and Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Besiktas.
