Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma Predictions


Shakhtar Donetsk can beat a Roma side that have seen some poor results on the road. Can they do enough to overturn the 3-0 deficit?

  • Shakhtar Donetsk have won their last 4 home matches (UEFA Europa League).
  • Shakhtar Donetsk have won 8 of their last 10 home matches (UEFA Europa League).
  • Shakhtar Donetsk have won their last 3 home matches against Roma (UEFA Champions League).
  • Roma have lost 6 of their last 11 away matches (all competitions).
  • Roma have failed to score in 4 of their last 6 away matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Shakhtar Donetsk have a 4-3 advantage against Roma. 

Shakhtar won four in a row before a 1-0 defeat in Rome in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League last 16 second leg.

The first leg in the Europa League this season saw Rome win 3-0 in Italy. It was a closer match than the score suggests.

Shakhtar Donetsk Form


Shakhtar Donetsk have seen some mixed results in 2021. They kept four clean sheets before 1-0 defeats against Zorya in the Ukraine Premier League and 1-0 at Ahrobiznes Volochysk in the Cup.

Luís Castro’s side then won 1-0 at Olimpik Donetsk before a 3-0 defeat against Roma in the Europa League last 16 second leg. They had plenty of the ball in Rome but were inefficient up front.

Shakhtar’s last match was a 4-0 home win against Desna in the Premier League. Tete and Manor Solomon bagged braces in a routine victory.

Shakhtar Donetsk Injuries & Team News


Shakhtar Donetsk are missing injured defensive midfielders Taras Stepanenko and Maksym Malyshev.

Roma Form


Roma bounced back from a 2-1 defeat against AC Milan with three straight wins. They won 2-1 at Fiorentina and 1-0 against Genoa before hosting Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League.

Paulo Fonseca’s side won 3-0 with goals to Lorenzo Pellegrini, Stephan El Shaarawy and Gianluca Mancini.

I Giallorossi returned to Serie A with a disappointing 2-0 defeat in Parma. Roma had 58% possession and 21-7 shots but another poor result on the road makes it six defeats in their last 11 away matches.

Roma Injuries & Team News


Centre back Chris Smalling is injured and Juan Jesus is out after testing positive for corona virus.

Midfielder Jordan Veretout is also injured alongside attacking midfielders Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Nicolò Zaniolo.
