Soccer News – Roma-Feyenoord
It’s time for the first ever final of the Conference League – the newest club competition in Europe. AS Roma will face Feyenoord at the Air Albania Stadium in Tirana. Let’s preview it in these soccer betting tips for today.
Jose Mourinho reaches his first final since he started managing AS Roma. For the Italian club this is a first European final since 31 years when they lost against Inter Milan for the UEFA Cup. It has been a long wait, but now the Wolves have the opportunity to add a first major European trophy to their museum.
For Roma it was a turbulent season in the Conference League. A few people believed they could reach the final after conceding six goals against Bodo/Glimt in the group stage. But you should never count Mourinho out when it comes to European competitions. Roma improved their performances and reached the final after a win against Leicester City in the 1/2-finals.
Tammy Abraham is a player who really flourish for Roma since his arrival last summer. The English striker has scored 9 goals in 13 matches in the Conference League this season. He’s going to be the biggest danger to Feyenoord’s defense on Wednesday.
Feyenoord is one of the biggest Dutch clubs and they reached a final in Europe for a first time since 2002. That’s when they won the UEFA Cup for a second time after beating Borussia Dortmund at their own ground De Kuip.
Currently managed by Arne Slot, Feyenoord are close to making this season successful. The team finished third in the Eredivisie, but winning the Conference League could be a great boost for doing something bigger during the next campaign. Their biggest hope for Wednesday is the Nigerian striker Cyriel Dessers who is the competition’s leading goalscorer this season. So far Dessers managed to score 10 goals in 12 matches in the Conference League.
That’s the soccer betting tips for the Conference League final between AS Roma and Feyenoord in Tirana. Maybe Roma are favorites here, but you should not underestimate Feyenoord – we all know the strength of Dutch football.
