This is the first leg and will be played in Kharkiv, as Shakhtar’s original stadium in Donetsk was badly damaged by bombs.

The Giallorossi topped their group ahead of Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, but Shakhtar eliminated Napoli and won all three of their home games, including against Manchester City.

The big doubt surrounds Alessandro Florenzi, who was suffering from a stomach bug last night.

The temperature during the game is expected to be -8 degrees Celsius.

Roma have conceded in each of their last 21 Champions League away fixtures, last holding out 2-0 in Lyon on March 6, 2007.

The last time the Capital club reached the quarter-final was in 2008.
