  • The Giallorossi have won seven straight home European knockout ties

Familiar faces can’t stop Fonseca

2021 is proving to be a trip down memory lane for Roma boss Paulo Fonseca. He saw off former club Braga in the last 32 and now the Portuguese boss takes on another former since in Shakhtar.

Fonseca lead his team to wins in both legs against Braga and the Giallorossi come into this one having won five of their last six in this competition. That makes them the favourites seeing as Shakhtar toiled against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the last round.

The hosts certainly come into this one on form, following five wins from their last six at the Stadio Olimpico. On top of that, Roma have won each of their last seven home knockout matches in major European competition. We think they’re worth backing for another victory on Thursday.

Given that Shakhtar Donetsk have failed to score in each of their last four matches against Italian opposition in European competition, we’re backing a 1-0 home win as our correct score prediction.
