The match Roma-Shakhtar Donetsk will take place at 03:45 PM (EST) on March 13, 2018, at the Stadio Olimpico.
Roma faces the Ukrainian champions in the Champions League second-leg match. The giallorossi want to qualify for the quarterfinals. Di Francesco plays his favorite starting 11. Florenzi and Kolarov on the defensive sides with Fazio and Manolas as centre-backs.
De Rossi will set the pace of the game as a playmaker. The Italian midfielder will be supported by Strootman. Probably, Nainggolan will operate closer to Dzeko. His offensive approach will support Under and Perotti on the two flanks as well.
Roma’s tactical approach should be 4-3-3 but the team is able to switch back to the 4-2-3-1 if needed.
