UEFA Champions League Report: Roma v Shakhtar Donetsk, 13 March 2018

A straight red card for Ivan Ordets in the closing stages helped the Giallorossi's cause as they reached the last eight of the Europe's elite club competition for only the fourth time in their history.

Diego Perotti fired straight at Pyatov as Roma chased a second and Dzeko then nearly struck again with a wonderful curling shot that just faded wide, before Shakhtar redoubled their efforts.

The Serie A outfit were back in the contest just seven minutes after the restart, however, when the visiting defence was caught out by Kevin Strootman's ball over the top and Dzeko ran through on goal to slot under Pyatov into the back of the net.

The two teams went into the interval level, with the visitors looking the more risky of the two in the opening stages.

"We made a few too many mistakes in the first leg and they made the majority".

"[Paulo] Fonseca's team has technical and fast players who can find space between the lines and as soon as you give them space on the pitch they turn around and counter-attack you, which is what happened in the second half". "Shakhtar dominated the entire game and were always around the Roma area, even when going down to 10 men against 11".

For the victors a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League awaits.

Goal scorer Dzeko had no doubts, saying Roma were "deservedly" through, and he said the chance to move on with Roma was a big reason why he stayed on in January, despite interest from Chelsea. We scored that goal and then we did everything all together.

"What I liked best is that we played like men and that's the most important thing if we want to aspire to certain goals and dreams", said Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco, in his first ever Champions League campaign.

The judicial Committee of UEFA announced the referees for the second leg of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League between Shakhtar and Roma. "I don't have a preferred opponent: they are all strong teams, but we will play to win against anyone. The victory is experiencing nights like this", he added.
