Darijo Srna subject of several challenges from Serie A side's players

Shakhtar Donetsk coach Mircea Lucescu has lashed out at the behaviour of Roma's players during the Ukrainian champions' victory on Tuesday evening at the Donbass Arena.

The Miners qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time, winning 3-0 on the night and 6-2 on aggregate.

However, during the victory captain Darijo Srna came in for some bitter treatment from the Roma players. The Croatian full-back was on the end of a deliberate blow to the face from Roma captain Daniele De Rossi and then a series of tough, late tackles from Marco Borriello and Simone Perrotta.

"Roma's players were rough. Srna was wrong to make fun of the Italians after the goal and during the break I told him how angry I was and I would replace him if he didn't stop it. In any case, the reaction of Roma was very unprofessional," quoted the coach as saying post-match.

De Rossi could again come under the eye of Uefa for his reactions against Srna, after being cleared of accusations of having thrown a punch at the end of the first leg at the Stadio Olimpico.
