Shakhtar vs Roma
Roma is traveling to Donetsk to face a tough challenge. It will be very cold weather and Shaktar already proved to be a dangerous team at home in Champions League. That's why we'll take this high price on a home win. It's Champins League, so it's the most difficult competition to bet, but we consider Roma an unexperienced and pretty fragile team in this competition.
Roma is not used to play Champions League ties. They don't even dream about winning it. They are having a decent season, but nothing amazing. Just another typical Roma year, heading towards the 3rd place and nothing more. This team cannot fight for the title in Italy, such a poor league, so how can they be dangerous in the most difficult competition in the world?
Shakhtar has a good record at home lately in Campions League, losing only to Real Madrid (3-4) and PSG (0-3) in the last two seasons. They were able to beat Napoli, Feyenoord and Man City at home in the group last fall, and they had plenty of time to prepare this game, as their league ended last December.
Roma won just 1 of last 13 games on the road in Champins League, and it was at Qarabag (2-1) with 6 losses and 6 draws. Roma played twice Shaktar in the past and lost both games on the road (0-1, 0-3) and one at home (2-3).
