Shakhtar Donetsk vs AS Roma Champions League:
Date: 8th March 2011 – Time: 7:45 PM GMT
In the next match of the Champions League Round of 16 we will have Shakhtar Donetsk taking on AS Roma in the 2nd leg of the knock out stages. AS Roma are playing really well of late and although they are trailing in the tie as they were struggling to cope with the pressure they have a huge task of overtaking the 3-2 lead which Shakhtar established in the 1st leg at Stadio de Olympico couple of weeks ago. Shakhtar are leading in the tie by 3-2 and have scored priceless 3 away goals which will help them greatly to take advantage.
In the first leg of the this Round of 16 tie we had a superb match as two of the great teams played a superb match which resulted in a 3-2 win for Shakhtar which came as a huge surprise specially considering the fact that they were playing away from home. Roma are playing some poor football in that match resulted in the worst result they could have although mathematiclay they do have a chance to win but they will have to play out of their skin to win the match.
Predictions: Shakhtar Donetsk are in the driving seat at the moment in the tie as they are playing well and I can see them winning the 2nd leg as well specialy considering the fact that they are playing at home and Roma will have to come at them.
