Shakhtar Donetsk eliminated from tournament

Shakhtar Donetsk eliminated from tournament”

Roma progressed into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League on the away goals rule as Tuesday's 1-0 victory over 10-man Shakhtar Donetsk at the Stadio Olimpico secured a 2-2 aggregate win.

Roma's Edin Dzeko celebrates scoring their first goal against Shakhtar Donetsk at Stadio Olimpico in Rome March 13, 2018.

Shakhtar's chances of producing a comeback were dealt a huge blow in the 79 minute when they were reduced to 10 men following the sending off of Ivan Ordets after straight red card.

In the 2010-2011 season mallenco refereed match of the Champions League between Ajax and Dinamo (2:1), then worked on the matches in the group stage of the Champions League 2012-2013 between "Dynamo" and "Port" (0:0), and in the 2015-2015 season came to Kiev for the match of 1/4 final of the Europa League between "Dnepr" and "Bruges" (1:0).

Neither side could find the breakthrough by half time, but the Giallorossi went on to take the lead not long after the restart when Dzeko sprung the offside trap to latch on to a Kevin Strootman through-ball.

"Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all gave absolutely everything tonight and we fully deserve to be in the quarter-finals", Dzeko was quoted as saying by Sky Sports Italia. "All the other teams are strong but we are strong too".

Shakhtar were unlucky not to get an away goal of their own early on when Roma's Alessandro Florenzi nearly headed an in-swinging free-kick into his own net with a glancing clearance.

The home side came out with renewed goal in the second half and Dzeko delighted their vocal fans when he broke the deadlock with a trademark clinical finish.

He could have had a second just after the hour mark when he curled in an effort from outside the area but it sailed inches wide of the top left-hand corner. Shakhtar goes home, though.

"A fantastic result, a fantastic Roma", he said on the club's official twitter account.
