Roma captain Francesco Totti believes that drawing Shakhtar Donetsk in the Last 16 of the Champions League on Friday was favourable for the Giallorossi.
"It's one of the teams we wanted," he told Roma Channel.
"They are less difficult than some of the others, but it will still be hard to address because the weather is very cold [in Ukraine]."
The World Cup 2006 winner also commented on the mouthwatering clash between Barcelona and Arsenal.
"Arsenal - Barcelona? It's certainly a match to watch, to look at closely, and remember," he concluded.
