The fact that Roma lost the first fight with Shakhtar did not surprise us at all. Wolves have been in crisis for some time and this can be felt. Team coach Di Francesco lost in the last days not only with the Ukrainian team, but also with AC Milan. For De Rossi, Dzeko and the company, a positive sign must have been a win from Napoli. Will AS Roma win and eliminate the team from Donetsk?
