Roma Director Antonio Tempestilli: Champions League Battle With Shakhtar Donetsk Won't Be Easy

Roma director Antonio Tempestilli believes that taking Shakhtar Donetsk lightly will be like pushing the Champions League self-destruct button.

The Italians avoided being paired against Europe's elite in today's last 16 draw, but Tempestilli has said they cannot undervalue the Ukrainian side.

"Lucky draw? It's obvious there are more competitive teams, but I believe when you reach these levels no game is easy," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"It would be a mistake to think there will be no problems against Shakhtar and it would be a mistake to underestimate the opponents."
