Roma and Shakhtar can put on an exciting show
Goals should flow in Italian capital
Champions League last-16 second leg
BT Sport 3, 7.45pm Tuesday
Shakhtar take a 2-1 advantage to Italy following a pulsating encounter at home, where Roma deservedly led in the first period but were fortunate to concede just twice after the interval.
Ace Roma keeper Alisson was kept busy by Shakhtar’s all-South American frontline of Facundo Ferreyra, Marlos, Bernard and Taison.
Manchester City target Fred was also right on the money with a fabulous free kick and on the counter Roma need to be wary of Shakhtar’s qualities.
Roma have won just three of their last ten home Champions League matches so there is no rush to back Eusebio Di Francesco’s outfit to qualify at evens. However, with Edin Dzeko up front the hosts are still a major attacking threat.

Lorenzo Pellegrini and Rick Karsdorp are sidelined. Gregoire Defrel is doubtful.
Maksym Malyshev is injured and Darijo Srna is suspended.
Roma have won only two of their last seven matches in all competitions.
