Montella convinced Roma can make history at Shakhtar Donetsk

AS Roma coach Vincenzo Montella is convinced they can win at Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Giallorossi need a win in the Ukraine on Tuesday after surprisingly losing the home leg 3-2 under previous boss Claudio Ranieri.

"They are a quality team who haven't lost for 60 games, but they are beatable," said Montella.

"I want to see the same Roma side who faced Lecce, a team who were concentrated right up until the final whistle.

"I'm optimistic because Roma are clearly growing. We have a better squad than our opponents, but we are aware that we have a feat to achieve.

"It's important that my players have the right stimulus. They have a certain style of play, but we have our characteristics too."
