When and Where is Roma vs. Feyenoord?
Roma vs Feyenoord, UEFA Europa Conference League Final, will go underway on Wednesday, 25 May 2022, at 8:00 pm BST (GMT+1).
The Arena Kombetare in Tirana, Albania, will host this UEFA’s third-tier cup competition final match.
The Italian giants AS Roma will take on Dutch powerhouse Feyenoord to grab the inaugural title of UEFA’s third-tier cup competition.
The Italian outfits have not been in a good touch under the “special one” Jose Mourinho. They have struggled throughout the season and finished narrowly at 6th in the Serie A, qualifying for the UEFA Europa League next season.
However, they are in with an excellent opportunity to grab their first trophy since 2008. AS Roma finished the competition’s group stage by topping Group C despite a 6-1 goal smashing against Bodo/Glimt. They passed the rest of the path to the final without any trouble. Mourinho’s men defeated the English Club Leicester City by 2-1 goals on aggregate in the semi-finals to qualify for the Final.
AS Roma are coming into this match after a fresh win over Torino by 3-0 goals in the Serie A. This win has confirmed a spot in the Europa League next season. It will certainly boost their confidence in the Final against Feyenoord.
Moreover, it will be the 5th European Final for the “special one” Jose Mourinho. He will try to keep his 100 percent win record in the European Finals by defeating Feyenoord tonight. If his men beat Feyenoord in the final, Mourinho would become the first manager to have won all three major UEFA Competitions.
On the other side of the pitch, we have the Dutch top guns Feyenoord. They are unbeaten so far in this competition. They finished Group E as the group winners. Feyenoord beat Partizan Belgrade in the Round of 16 by 8-3 goals on aggregate, Slavia Praha in the quarter-finals by 6-4 goals on aggregate. They went through to the final by defeating French powerhouse Olympique de Marseille by 3-2 goals on aggregate in the semi-finals.
Feyenoord will go all guns blazing to beat AS Roma in the final to lift their first European trophy in 20 years. They are coming into this match after suffering a 2-1 goals defeat against Twente in the Eredivisie. They need to sort out their problems before the final encounter with the Roman heroes.
AS Roma vs. Feyenoord: Team News and Probable Lineup
Jose Mourinho has an excellent injury boost before the all-important final clash. Henrikh Mkhitaryan, injured in the semi-final first leg against Leicester City, has returned to training and could be in contention to feature in this match.
AS Roma Probable Lineup (3-4-1-2): Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Karsdorp, Cristante, Oliveira, Zalewski; Pellegrini; Zaniolo, Abraham
On the other hand, Orkun Kokcu is a doubt for Feyenoord in this match. He took an injury in their last league match against Twente. Justin Bijlow will also be unavailable due to injury. However, Tyrell Malacia has recovered and may start in the left-back position for Feyenoord.
Feyenoord Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Marciano; Geertruida, Trauner, Senesi, Malacia; Toornstra, Aursnes, Til; Nelson, Desserts, Sinisterra
AS Roma will be the stronger side in the final on paper. They have defeated Torino by 3-0 goals in their last match and qualified for the UEFA Europa League next season. It means they will be high on confidence as well.
Moreover, it will be tough for Feyenoord to beat José Mourinho’s 100 percent winning record in the European Finals by going against the odds AS Roma will try to finish the season positively by grabbing their first trophy since 2008.
Nonetheless, a final will be a last, and you cannot simply write Feyenoord off. Feyenoord is unbeaten so far in this competition, and they are more than capable of being the undefeated champions in the first UEFA Europa Conference League competition.
It will be a toe-to-toe battle between two good sides. It should be a narrow match and can go well into extra time. Our experts predict that Roma should claim a 2-1 goals victory over Feyenoord.
Score Prediction: AS Roma 2-1 Feyenoord
