AS Roma will wrap up their preparations for the upcoming Serie A campaign when they take on Shakhtar Donetsk in their final pre-season friendly on Sunday.
Roma returned to winning ways, seeing off Tottenham 1-0 on Saturday. Shakhtar, meanwhile, head into the weekend winless in their last four games and will look to end their barren run.
Before their Spurs win, Roma saw their four-game winning streak come to an end on July 19 when they suffered a 3-2 loss against Sporting Lisbon before playing out a 1-1 draw with OGC Nice four days later.
Jose Moutinho’s side head into the weekend unbeaten in all but one of their last eight games across competitions, claiming five wins and two draws.
Meanwhile, Shakhtar failed to find their feet last time out, as they were held to a 2-2 draw by FC Utrecht.
They have now failed to win their last four games, picking up two draws and losing twice. Shakhtar's last win came back in April, when they saw off Turkish side Antalyaspor 2-1 away from home.
