Roma Preview – Can Roma win three on trot?

Recent back-to-back wins in Serie A over Fiorentina and Genoa will give Thursday night’s hosts, Roma, plenty of confidence ahead of their 1st leg clash against Shakhtar Donetsk, while results overall have been pretty encouraging for the hosts of late.

Roma have suffered just the one defeat out of their last seven matches in all competitions which came in a 2-1 loss at home to 2nd placed AC Milan in Serie A but home and away wins against Portuguese outfit, Braga, in the previous round of the Europa League will have given Paulo Fonseca’s side a boost.

The hosts have also been impressive at home in the Europa League as Roma are unbeaten in their last nine ties, winning six of these including notable wins over Lyon, Gent and Braga and they beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 in their last meeting against the Ukrainian side.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Shakhtar Donetsk Preview – Can Shakhtar hold their own?

Shakhtar Donetsk bounced back from recent losses in the Ukrainian Premier League and domestic cup competition last time out when they registered a 1-0 win away from home at Olimpik Donestk in the domestic top flight.

Previous defeats to Zorya and Ahrobiznes Volochysk, the latter being an upset in the domestic cup competition perhaps show Shakhtar Donetsk are not quite the team they used to be but they’ve performed well on the Europa League stage in recent times.

Shakhtar have lost just one of their last eight ties overall which came in the shape of a heavy 5-0 loss at Inter Milan but they’ve managed just two wins out of their last five ties away from home at this level.
