Shakhtar has been scoring many goals in their domestic competition and they are a side that love to get big wins, especially at home. This will not be as easy as the domestic games that Shakhtar play but they will hope that they can get some inspiration from Brazilian playmaker Marlos. The attacking midfielder is full of goals and we are getting a good price on him scoring in this leg of the tie. If goalscorers are a bet which you want, betting on Marlos to score seems like a very good bet.
As far as Roma players are concerned, Edin Dzeko is the man who has been scoring. These conditions in Ukraine should not fluster the tall striker too much and I am liking the chances of him continuing his great form. We are getting a good price for a goal from the Bosnian international and I think this is another good wager we can make on this game.
Finally, I think that this will be a hard fought game. Both sides will want a good result so we should see plenty of hard tackles from players of both sides. A red card being shown in this game is a bet which I like very much and as a result that is something which I am suggesting a wager for this game.
