That away tally by Cengiz Under turned out to be the difference for the Italian side with the score knotted 2-2 on aggregate here on Tuesday, allowing the Romans to reach the quarterfinals for the first time in 10 years, Efe news reported.
A determined AS Roma beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 yesterday to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2008 as a magnificent finish by Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko sent them through on away goals.
The visitors' hopes of snatching the equaliser they needed to progress were hampered when Ivan Ordets was sent off for a 79th-minute professional foul on Džeko.
And in the Roma vs. Shakhtar Donetsk game in Rome, William Hill's bet for the Italian team winning this encounter is 1.67.
The Serie A outfit were back in the contest just seven minutes after the restart, however, when the visiting defence was caught out by Kevin Strootman's ball over the top and Dzeko ran through on goal to slot under Pyatov into the back of the net.
"I didn't want to leave, because all season we play for nights like this", he said.
He added: "Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all gave absolutely everything, right up until the last minute".
Roma defender Alessandro Florenzi almost netted an own goal in the 11th minute, but he was lucky to witness his miscued clearance sail inches past the upright.
Roma forced Shakhtar goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov into action in the 24th minute, with Diego Perotti and and Aleksandar Kolarov combining down the left before the latter fired in a cross to the near post.
The home side came out with renewed objective in the second half and Dzeko delighted Roma fans when he broke the deadlock with a trademark clinical finish.
Despite being a man down, Shakhtar launched a late onslaught and had several risky raids down the left flank but the home team's defence held on until the final whistle.
And Roma legend Francesco Totti also congratulated his former side on Twitter.
"A fantastic result, a fantastic Roma", he said on the club's official twitter account.
