IT will take second billing to Arsenal v Barcelona but the Champions League clash between Roma and Shakhtar Donetsk is no less intriguing.

The Italians have been in poor form, slipping to seventh in the table, and much depends on how the Ukrainians come out of cold storage.

They have played eight friendlies to keep them ticking over during the close season but it's not the same as Champions League crunch tie.

Shakhtar impressed in the group stage to top Arsenal's group despite a 5-1 loss at the Emirates and I reckon they can battle to a scoring draw.

Roma don't look good value at a best 1-1 with William Hill and bodog to win at the Olympic Stadium while Shakhtar are 10-3 at Paddy Power and Ladbrokes.

If the Ukrainians manage a draw I reckon they'll qualify. Blue Square and 888sport go 11-10 for a last-eight spot.

Recommendation: Both teams to score (10-11, Skybet, William Hill)
