Dzeko the difference as Roma through on away goals

Dzeko the difference as Roma through on away goals

Indeed, despite needing only a draw to themselves reach the last eight, this was no backs-to-the-wall job for Paulo Fonseca's Shakhtar as it sought to enjoy itself at Stadio Olimpico.

The game started positively, with Roma creating a chance in the opening minute of the match when Edin Dzeko dribbled his way to the edge of the box, but he saw his powerful effort well-saved by the keeper.

In the first half, Shakhtar managed to keep the ball and played carefully, searching for the ways to penetrate the opponent's defense line.

Alessandro Florenzi flicked a risky backwards header just wide of his own goal and a nervous home crowd witnessed the visitors maintaining a level of control throughout the first half, Pyatov intercepting when Aleksandar Kolarov led a rare Roma foray.

Taison then had a chance from 25-yards, but his effort glided past Alisson Becker and over the woodwork. The Bosnian took a defence-splitting pass from Kevin Strootman into his stride and beat the offside trap before he steered the ball into the far corner with the outside of his foot, past the advancing Pyatov.

Romelu Lukaku replied for the Red Devils, but it wasn't enough after the first leg ended goalless in Seville. In the group stage of 2007-2008 Champions League, the Spaniard recorded the Shakhtar's win over Benfica (2:0).

Despite being a man down Shakhtar pushed forward in search of the goal that would send them into the quarterfinals of the competition but they were unable to do so, losing 1-0 on the night and exiting the Champions League on the away goals after a 2-2 aggregate scoreline.

3 -The Italian side have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three Champions League home games, winning the last two (D1).

On Tuesday, Roma will welcome Shakhtar Donetsk while Manchester United will file out against Sevilla.

Dzeko was then brought down by Ordets who got a straight red card for his troubles, making Shakhtar's task that bit harder.
