Roma vs. Feyenoord Predictions: Two bet builders for Europa Conference League finale
Roma vs Feyenoord Odds
Live on BT Sports 1, Roma go head to head against Feyenoord in the final of the Europa Conference League final this Wednesday at the Arena Kombetare in Tirana. Mourinho’s men finished 6th in the Serie A to seal a Europa League spot for next season and come into this final off the back of a dominant 3-0 win over Torino in the league.
After beating Norwegian Champions Bodo/Glimt, Roma then overcame Leicester City in the semi-finals to get to this final and will take confidence from the fact that their manager Mourinho has never lost a major European final. His experience will certainly be significant for the Italian side as they come up against a Feyenoord team full of confidence who are unbeaten in their last 12 games in this competition.
After beating Slavia Prague in the quarterfinals, they overcame French side Marseille 3-2 on aggregate to qualify for this final. They are looking to become the first team to lift all three of Europe’s current club trophies and are a force to be reckoned with under their manager Arne Slot. We have a contrast in strategies as Roma will likely take a pragmatic approach to this game while Feyenoord will be expected to continue their free flowing attacking football which has helped them come this far.
A mouth-watering final awaits us and as usual, I have you covered with 2 of my best betting angles included in the preview below:
Roma vs Feyenoord Tips
Henrik Mkhitaryan is doubtful due to a hamstring injury.
Justin Bijlow is out for Feyenoord while Orkun Kokcu is doubtful.
Roma possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Karsdorp, Cristante, Oliveira, Zalewski; Pellegrini, Zaniolo; Abraham
Feyenoord possible starting lineup:
Marciano; Geertruida, Trauner, Senesi, Malacia; Aursnes, Kokcu; Nelson, Til, Sinisterra; Dessers
- Lorenzo Pellegrini Over 1.5 shots in the match
- Luis Sinisterra Over 0.5 shots in the match
- Over 0 cards in the 2nd half for both teams combined
Lorenzo Pellegrini averages 3.3 shots per game for Roma this season and is their 2nd top scorer with 11 goals. He has had at least 2 shots in his last 8 out of 9 league games and loves to shoot from distance. Luis Sinisterra averages the most shots per game in the Feyenoord squad (2.6). He has had at least 1 shot in his last 12 consecutive games and is Feyenoord’s 2nd top scorer with 16 goals.
Finally, I am adding a 2nd half card to boost the odds as we have a card happy referee Istvan Kovacs in charge and we should expect to see aggressive tackles coming in the final 45 minutes with both sides desperate to win the trophy. Combining these 3 selections gives us a cracking bet builder @ 4/5 and I am happy to stake 1pt on that as our main bet for this final.
Tammy Abraham is Roma’s top goalscorer with 23 goals to his name. He scored 2 goals in the final league game of the season against Torino and also scored a match winner against Leicester in the semi-finals of the Conference League.
Gianluca Mancini is Roma’s most booked player with an incredible 18 yellow cards this season. He has received 2 yellow cards in his last 3 games including a booking in the Conference League semi-final 2nd leg against Leicester.
Finally, Tyrell Malacia is Feyenoord’s 2nd most booked player with 6 yellow cards and has received 3 yellow cards in his last 4 games for the club including cards in both legs of the semifinals against Marseille.
Combining these 3 selections gives us a huge long shot @ 23/1 and I am happy to stake a very small 0.25pt on that as my final bet for this final.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly.
