Today’s Champions League draw paired Roma with the top Ukrainian side. Shakhtar could be a dangerous client for the Italian club.
Although the Roma fans were celebrating right after today’s positive draw, the giallorossi will face a tough side in the Round of 16.
Shakhtar Donetsk has played 28 games so far and achieved an average of 2.25 points per game. Coach Fonseca built a very competitive team able to impose its offensive strategies domestically and internationally.
By analyzing Shakhtar’s top men a particular mention goes to the Italian-Argentine striker Facundo Ferreyra who played all the games scoring 20 goals.
The Brazilian left winger Bernard is definitely worthy of a mention having collected 1,832 minutes and scored 9 goals so far.
Shakhtar’s captain Stepanenko is a solid defensive midfielder who played almost 2,000 minutes demonstrating his efficiency and ability in both phases.
Roma needs to carefully study Shakhtar’s performance data. The Ukrainian side is a top club with a solid international experience in the Champions League.
