Shakhtar Donetsk is to cross swords with AS Roma in the Round of last 16 of UEFA Champions League. The home game for Shakhtar will be held at Metalist arena in Kharkiv, northeastern Ukraine, on Wednesday evening.

Both teams are in decent shape, having won recent games in their respective national leagues. Interestingly, both coaches, Eusebio di Francesco and Paulo Fonseca, estimate their chances for success as 50/50. 

Shakhtar may have a better chance than their opponents; having defeated Napoli, which leads the way in Italian Serie A, the Mountaineers can rely on their experience in this game.
