Cengiz Under's goal in the first leg last month ultimately proved crucial for Roma, but Dzeko was the hero on the night and also proved instrumental in Shakhtar defender Ordets being shown a straight red card with 12 minutes left.

Cengiz Under's goal and a string of Alisson saves in a 2-1 away first-leg defeat had kept Roma in the tie, and Eusebio Di Francesco's men edged to victory in the return to reach the quarter-finals despite a dismal display in which Dzeko's victor was scarcely deserved.

Roma boss Eusebio Di Francesco said his side were waiting for Shakhtar Donetsk to "make a mistake" that would allow them to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals.

The former Manchester City forward latched on to Kevin Strootman's through ball before poking the ball between Andriy Pyatov's legs for the only goal.

But it wasn't plain sailing for the Italian side, with Paulo Fonseca's side looking the better of the two clubs in the first half. Substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice after coming on in the second half, with Romelu Lukaku pulling a goal back for United.

A composed 52nd-minute finish from Edin Džeko was enough to claim victory for Roma at home to Shakhtar Donetsk and send the Italian side through after the tie finished 2-2 on aggregate.

A small scuffle between players broke out 10 minutes before full time after Facundo Ferreyra pushed a ballboy over the advertising boards when trying to retrieve the ball from him.

Dzeko then looked to turn provider with an exquisite through-ball for Gerson on 73 minutes, but the Brazilian failed to test Pyatov with a poor strike from inside the box.

The Ukrainians had last reached the quarter-finals in 2011, which came at the expense of Roma.
