Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma predictions and betting tips for their Champions League Round of 16 First Leg fixture on Wednesday February 21st with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included.
Ahead of this Champions League first leg tie, Shakhtar Donetsk have only just resumed competitive action in the Ukraine Premier League and earned a 5-0 home win at the weekend. Shakhtar also won each of their three home fixtures when finishing second behind Manchester City in Group F earlier in the campaign. Visitors Roma finished as winners of Group C, but won only one of their three away fixtures when beating bottom team Qarabag 2-1. The Romans also waited nearly three months to claim a competitive victory on the road before winning at Udinese and Hellas Verona this month. A difficult match awaits Roma, so read our Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma predictions below and get yourself a free bet to use on our betting tips.
Although Shakhtar Donetsk won each of their group games on home soil in this season’s Champions League tournament, they conceded once in each of those contests and failed to register a clean sheet in any of those six matches. Roma will arrive in Kharkiv having won each of their three Serie A games this month after a difficult start to the year, and they have failed to score in just one game during 2018. The Romans have also lost just twice this season on away soil when beaten at Juventus and Atletico Madrid, but they now face a formidable home team which can conceded goals. Therefore, the first of our Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma predictions is for Shakhtar to win this leg by a one-goal margin.

Since transferring from Istanbul Basaksehir during the Summer, Turkish international Cengiz Under failed to score a goal for Roma until the beginning of February. He has since netted four Serie A goals and scored in each of the three league games this month. Under could appeal as a decent anytime goalscorer tip. Therefore, the second of our Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma betting tips is for Under to score anytime. Turkey failed to qualify for the World Cup so the Roma man will not be taking part and Turkey will not be a-part of our World Cup tips for this summer.
