On Wednesday night, Shakhtar Donetsk welcomed Roma to the Metalist Stadium on Wednesday for the knockout stages. Both sides were aiming to make it through to the quarter finals, with the second leg played in three weeks time.
Cengiz Under scored his first Champions League goal to give Roma the lead in the 41st minute on Wednesday. Facundo Ferreyra equalised for Shakhtar Donetsk just six minutes into the second period. Then hosts went ahead on 71 minutes thanks to a bullet free-kick from Manchester City target Fred.
It was another impressive result for Shakhtar, which beat Manchester City and Napoli in Ukraine in the group stages of this season's competition.
Shakhtar are playing their home matches in Kharkiv as the stadium in Donetsk was damaged by the conflict in Ukraine.
