AS Roma Form and Team News
Mourinho’s side sealed their place in Europe next season, thanks to a three-nil win over Torino last weekend. They now look forward to this fixture without their place in Europe next season hanging in the balance, effectively taking the pressure off their shoulders. They have enjoyed considerable success in the first edition of the Conference League and are the second-highest goalscorers this season.
With only two losses in the competition, Roma will draw enough inspiration from their form and Tammy Abraham, who has struck nine times in the competition. Their previous two finals in Europe ended in losses, but the men from Rome will hope to banish their bad luck at the Air Albania Stadium, Tirana. For injury news, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will not feature for Roma due to a muscle injury.
Feyenoord Form and Team News
The Dutch team’s performance in the Conference League makes them huge favorites in the eyes of many to win this title. They remain unbeaten in the tournament and have scored the most goals (28), with red-hot forward Cyriel Desserts grabbing 10 of those goals. They already have a place in the Europa League qualifiers next season, which winning this trophy will help them avoid.
Although Feyenoord’s last appearance in a European final came in 2002, they have won on four occasions, with only the 2002 appearance ending in a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid. They also boast a great record against Italian opponents, unbeaten in nine out of fourteen meetings with clubs from Italy. Their route to the final was straightforward, but they notably had to come from behind in all three knockout fixtures.
For injury news, Feyenoord will be missing the duo of Tein Troost and Cole Bassett, who will not feature due to the coach’s decision and inactivity.
