“I think I’ll be in Rome to see the challenge. It’s all open, both teams can pass to the next round. I was surprised seeing Shakhtar’s second half. They raised the pace of the game putting Roma in trouble. The Ukrainian team should have had a physical decline in the second half mainly due to the long winter break. We know that they have good and fast players, but the team had the strength to raise the pace and surprised Roma “.
