Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Roma: Will Shakhtar take revenge on Roma and still leave the Europa League?
Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Roma: Prediction for the Europa League football match on 18, 2021
FC Shakhtar Donetsk
"Shakhtar" from Donetsk will play against "Roma" in the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Europa League. The match will take place on March 18 in Kyiv. We prepared our prediction for the match.
FC Shakhtar Donetsk
"Shakhtar" failed their first match with "Roma", being defeated with a score of 0:3 - an absolutely logical result that fully corresponded to the content of the game. The champion of Ukraine once again played an uncertain match after a winter break.
Reaching the 1/8 finals of the Europa League can be considered a fortunate coincidence for "Shakhtar". In the previous round, Luis Castro’s team got one of the weakest rivals - the Israeli "Maccabi". But even against this club, "Shakhtar" did not look their best, especially at home.
Besides, "Shakhtar" has already been eliminated from the Ukrainian Cup, losing to a team from the first division, and was also defeated by "Zorya" in the most important UPL match.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
Meanwhile, after a confident victory over "Shakhtar", "Roma" played a terrible match against "Parma". The Romans lost to one of the outsiders with a score of 0:2.
But there can be no question of any crisis here, something like that happens with "Roma" from time to time. In general, there are much more positive than negative aspects.
In the previous round of the Europa League playoffs, "Roma" easily beat Portuguese "Braga", winning both away and home matches. And "Braga" could well play on equal terms with the same "Shakhtar".
"Roma" has suffered six defeats in 11 previous away matches.
"Shakhtar" is very keen on revenge, but it will not be easy to make a comeback. The hosts should not concede, otherwise, they will have to score five goals. In any case, "Shakhtar" will play to win, but the final aggregate score will most likely be in the Italians' favor.
Our betting option is that both teams will score with odds of 1.62 on 1xbet.
