Feyenoord vs Roma match preview

A repeat of last season’s Europa Conference League Final, meaning there is no love lost between these two.

11 months ago, the now departed Nicolò Zaniolo was the only scorer as Roma beat Feyenoord 1-0 in Tirana.

Will this rematch go the same way?

Since that final defeat, Feyenoord have massively improved, so will be confident of claiming revenge.

De club aan de Maas are eight points clear at the top of the Eredivisie, having beaten Ajax in Amsterdam for the first time in 18 years last month.

Sunday’s 5-1 demolition of RKC Waalwijk made it eight successive league wins, leaving them in pole position to claim a first league title since 2017.

In Europe, Arne Slot’s side demolished Shakhtar Donetsk in the round of 16, prevailing 7-1 at home after a 1-1 draw in Warsaw.

Orkun Kökçü and Oussama Idrissi both bagging braces as Feyenoord scored 7+ in a European game for the first time since victory over Baltika Liepāja in 1995.

So, will the fans have plenty more goals to celebrate in Rotterdam?

This tie is unlikely to be quite as high-scoring, with José Mourinho determined to win the Europa League with a third different club.

I Giallorossi came from behind to beat RB Salzburg in the first knockout round, before edging out Real Sociedad in the round of 16.

Stephan El Shaarawy and Marash Kumbulla were on target in the first leg at Stadio Olimpico, before la Lupa battled to a goalless draw in San Sebastián.

By hook or by crook, Roma need to get back into the Champions League this season.

Following back-to-back wins, they are surprisingly third in Serie A, with Paulo Dybala’s penalty downing Torino on Saturday.

Across all competitions, Roma’s 41 matches this season have produced a measly 88 goals, that’s just 2.1 per 90.

Thus, Mourinho’s men will want to keep this two-legged affair as low-scoring as possible.

Feyenoord meanwhile have been irrepressible at De Kuip this season, so can they establish a healthy first leg lead this week?

Feyenoord team news

With regular number one goalkeeper Justin Bijlow out injured, Timon Wellenreuther will continue to deputise.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh, who scored in the demolition of Shakhtar Donetsk, has since picked up a groin injury, making him a doubt.

Santiago Giménez scored his 18th goal for Feyenoord at the weekend, so will continue to lead the attack.

Roma team news

Full-back Leonardo Spinazzola will miss the return leg in the Eternal City if booked in Rotterdam.

On the other side, with Rick Karsdorp sidelined, Nicola Zalewski could keep his place, chosen over Zeki Çelik.

José Mourinho elected not to select either of his strikers, Tammy Abraham or Andrea Belotti, as Roma had just one shot on target against Torino on Saturday, this being Paulo Dybala’s winning penalty.

So, Abraham is likely to return here, seeking his first goal since 4 February, with Ola Solbakken dropping out.
