AS Roma wing-back Leonardo Spinazzola cautions his teammates, especially the defenders to be 'on their toes' against Shakhtar Donetsk, as he called their opponent a team with 'quality and stamina.'

The first leg in the

Europa League

Round of 16 commences at 20:00 GMT. 

"We have to be careful with the preventative marking, so our defenders need to always be fully focused and on their toes," the Italy international Leonardo Spinazzola told Sky Sport Italia.

"Shakhtar are a really strong team, very quick, they have quality and stamina."

With

Edin Dzeko

and

Borja Mayoral

on the seat, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is in an unusual False 9 position.

The 27-year-old defender added:

"It changes nothing for me, as I just need to get the ball back quickly. All three forwards are excellent and whoever plays gives their all

."
