Ben Yedder brace sinks United; Dzeko sends Roma through

Alessandro Florenzi has called on his team to repeat their Champions League home displays

Roma celebrated only their second win in six meetings with the Ukrainian side and got revenge for a 6-2 aggregate defeat by them at the same stage of the competition in 2011, although they endured a nervy finish.

Secondly, it was when Facundo Ferreyra dispossessed fellow countryman Federico Fazio but failed to capitalise on his opportunity after going through on goal but was fended off well by Fazio as his sliding shot went wayward.

It was an evenly contested first 45 minutes despite Shakhtar Donetsk having the higher percentage of possession.

Roma sporting director Monchi has pledged to sing the club anthem if they reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in its current format.

Kolarov then crucially swept the ball away from Ferreyra's toe inside the Roma box as the sides went in level at the break.

Pyatov mistimed his rush off the line, leaving the former Manchester City marksman to get beyond the Shakhtar keeper and calmly prod the ball into an empty net to put Roma in pole position for progress. Despite killing the tie against Serie A giants AS Roma in the Round of 16 first leg, Paulo Fonseca's men were forced to bow out of UEFA Champions League on Wednesday by resilient Giallorossi at the Stadio Olimpico.

Diego Perotti fired straight at Pyatov as Roma chased a second and Dzeko then nearly struck again with a wonderful curling shot that just faded wide, before Shakhtar redoubled their efforts. "If we had finished off the chances we had in the first leg the match would already have been over".

The Portuguese added: "We had a fantastic (Champions League) campaign as we won all four home games". A momentary loss of concentration ensured the Pitmen conceded a goal that knocked them out, with Ordets' red card not helping their cause.

- Edin Dzeko has had a hand in 55 per cent of Roma's 11 goals in the Champions League this season (4 goals, 2 assists).
