Bet of the Day: Shakhtar Donetsk stunning value to beat Roma

Hosts won't roll over at home
Match Odds: Shakhtar Donetsk 1.90, Draw 3.50, Roma 4.0 (myBet)

Our fine form continued on Monday night as the recommended bet of under 1.5 goals @ 2.80 in the Vicenza - Torino paid off as the home side ran out 1-0 winners. Let's hope another Italian side turns us a profit this evening.

Roma's trek to Ukraine has been dubbed 'mission impossible' in some quarters and in truth that is being generous. Shakhtar have never lost at the Donbass Arena since they moved into the venue in 2009 and indeed are unbeaten at home in Europe since October 2008. One of the few sides to beat Shakhtar in Donetsk in recent years is Barcelona and that was courtesy of some late heroics from a certain Leo Messi.

Since taking the reins at the Stadio Olimpico, former Roma starlet Vincenzo Montella has overseen a mini renaissance. He has a major job on his hands to get anything from this game as his side trail 3-2 from the first leg. A crumb of comfort for Roma fans is that they did pull of a stunning comeback earlier in the competition by beating Bayern Munich 3-2 after being 2-0 down.

Goals look more than likely in this encounter. Shakhtar have scored in every Champions League game this season while Roma haven't been able to keep a clean sheet. More of the same would be welcome at the Donbass on Tuesday evening.
