Jose Mourinho resumes his trophy hunt on Wednesday night as his AS Roma side take on Eredivisie side Feyenoord in the first-ever UEFA Europa Conference League final.

Neither club has been in the hunt for silverware on the domestic stage this term, with Feyenoord third in the Dutch top flight and Roma sixth in Serie A. But in Europe it’s a different matter, with both teams now having a glorious chance to complete the 2021/22 campaign by etching their names into club folklore. The final itself takes place in Tirana, Albania, with Roma overtaking Bodo/Glimt, Vitesse and Leicester along the way. Feyenoord, meanwhile, have seen Partizan, Slavia Prague and Marseille to reach this stage.

The Dutch club won the old UEFA Cup in 2002, their last continental trophy, while Roma have never won a major European competition – the Intercity Fairs Cup in the 1960s and the Anglo-Italian Cup there. 50 years are their only triumphs in this regard. stage, without a trophy of any kind won since the 2008 Coppa Italia. Mourinho and his team are doing everything possible to end this sterile race. Follow the action and updates from the Europa Conference League final below:


Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

60 mins: Karsdorp nods behind the ball for another Feyenoord corner. It’s played short and worked in a very complex way before Aursnes slips a pass into Kokcu who lets fly but Smalling blocks superbly! The former Manchester United man has been brilliantly so far tonight.

UNDER! Guus Til gave way to Jens Toornstra.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

What a backup it was from Rui Patricio.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

57 mins: It was a really disappointing decision by referee Istvan Kovacs and VAR officials. You have to assume that if Abraham had gone down there it would have been a foul and a red card. His desire to stay on his feet cost him and helped Feyenoord.

Nevertheless, a totally different second half! There was almost no action in the mouth of the goal in the first period. There has been nothing but action in the goal mouth since the break!

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

Abraham catches Senesi taking a nap and suddenly seems to be on goal. Senesi then chooses to withdraw it and the England international chooses not to go down. When he cannot reach the ball, he straightens up and asks the referee to give the free kick and possibly a red card. Nothing is given. It goes to the VAR and still nothing!

If Abraham goes down there, it’s a red card. Sad to see really.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

51 mins: Another Feyenoord corner is played short and when Aursnes sends it through the middle, he seems to have put Patricio in trouble for a moment before he steps back to claim a difficult cross.

OH WHAT A SAFEGUARD! It’s a delightful move from Feyenoord as Sinisterra sprints down the right and turns it around for Geertruida whose 20-yard thunderbolt is knocked down the post by Patricio!

The corner is then tipped and the film narrowly escapes Trauner.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

48 mins: Til does well to beat Mancini down the right in the opening moments of the second half but the Roma defender comes back to him brilliantly to win the ball back.

CHANCE! Oh two great opportunities for Feyenoord! The corner is played short and when it is finally sent low into the box, Mancini turns it against his own post! A pinball ensues around the penalty area and Patricio is forced to make a smart save!

There is then a VAR check for a possible handball but nothing comes of it.

Feyenoord started this second period so quickly!

Second half: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

46 min: It started then with the second half. Roma are 45 minutes from a first major European trophy.

HT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

We will be back in Albania shortly. Feyenoord are going to have to show more attacking threat in the second half or this final will go away from them.

From a Roma perspective, you can bet your house on Mourinho calling for more of the same.

HT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

I mean, it’s not the Champions League, but it’s still pretty impressive.

HT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

That was Jose’s rather disappointing reaction to that first goal. To be fair, he’s seen enough European final goals at this stage.
