The race for a place in the final four of the Europa League concludes this week, as the second legs of the quarterfinals are staged on Thursday. AS Roma will have a tough challenge on their hands to reach the semi-finals, as they were beaten in last week’s first leg by Feyenoord in the Netherlands.
Before Betting On AS Roma vs Feyenoord
The pressure will be on AS Roma for this second leg on Thursday, as Jose Mourinho’s side looks to overturn a 1-0 disadvantage from the first meeting between the sides. In a rematch of last season’s Europa Conference League final, Feyenoord gained revenge with a 1-0 home success. Mats Wieffer scored the crucial goal in the game early in the second half, but it will be a tall order for them to defend that advantage.
The defeat suffered by Roma in the first clash between the sides was the first time that they had lost against Dutch opposition. In each of the previous four home matches against sides from the Netherlands, they have drawn. However, Feyenoord are winless in their previous four trips to Italy since recording a win over Inter Milan in 2002.
Feyenoord should be confident coming into this second leg, as they have progressed from each of their previous three European ties when boasting a one-goal advantage going into the return game. But, they are winless in five away matches since reaching the final of the Europa Conference League last season.
The goals appear to have dried up for Roma in European competition, as they have now failed to find the net in their previous two. They haven’t gone three without finding the back of the net since March 2016.

This will be a tense second leg between the sides, as there will be huge stakes on the line for both sides. We wouldn’t be surprised to see AS Roma land a 1-0 win in 90 minutes to force extra time, before the Italian’s score a crucial winner in the extra time period.
