Draw

A comprehensive first-leg victory means that Roma could approach the game in a calm manner. Roma’s record in Ukraine is not great with their solitary success on this soil coming against Dynamo Kyiv rather than Shakhtar Donetsk. Unless an early goal arrives, the hosts stand little chance of progression and their confidence will diminish by the minute.

Both teams to score

Shakhtar Donetsk have done quite well in Europa League matches at home. The team has failed to score in just one of the last 13 home encounters in the Europa League. Roma’s poor form in European games is likely to help Shakhtar Donetsk. But the visitors do possess players like Lorenzo Pellegrini, who found the net in the first leg.

Total goals under 2.5

Even though the two teams have produced some high scoring games in contrast, the result of the first leg is likely to make this encounter all about qualification to the next round for Roma. Even with both teams scoring, this game is likely to be low on goals, according to UEFA Europa League predictions.

Shakhtar Donetsk

Shakhtar Donetsk have a mountain to climb if they are to reach the next round of the Europa League. If an early goal does not come, the confidence of the home team is likely to diminish quite significantly. Shakhtar Donetsk have not done exceptionally well in the European home games, but they are up against a Roma outfit who have been struggling for good away results. Taras Stepanenko and Maksym Malyshev are unavailable for the hosts.

Roma

Roma are hoping to reach beyond the Europa League last 16 for the first time. The Italian outfit might have been knocked out at this stage in recent seasons, but they are now the odds-on favourite to qualify after the mammoth first-leg win. Roma have a poor record in travels to Ukraine and this statistic will be playing hard in the minds of the players and staff. Roma will be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Juan Jesus, and Chris Smalling.
