Europa League Conference: Roma win the final against Feyenoord!


At the end of a fairly balanced final where the two teams will have had their highlights, it is José Mourinho’s Roma who offer themselves Feyenoord (1-0) and therefore win the first C4 in the history of the club.

In Tirana, in the small enclosure of the Arena Kombëtare, AS Roma and Feyenoord, who defeated OM in the semi-finals, faced each other for the very first final in the history of the Europa League Conference, a new competition . The Italian team, led by José Mourinho, hoped to win the first European Cup in its history. For this match, the Portuguese technician obviously fielded his typical team and could even count on the return from injury of Henrikh Mkhitaryan while Feyenoord fielded the same team as in their matches against OM.

In the first period, the Romans showed a face like their season in C4: solid defensively, well in place with some flashes in front. Without worrying a Feyenoord team that was also uninspired offensively. Just back from injury, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who had forced his return to play this final, was forced to give up his place after 20 minutes of play. The Louve club ended up opening the scoring thanks to the man of the competition Nicolo Zaniolo. The 22-year-old Italian international perfectly adjusted Bijlow who slightly missed his outing (1-0, 32nd). A goal that had the merit of waking up Feyenoord afterwards.

New trophy for José Mourinho

When they returned from the locker room, Arne Slot’s men came back with better intentions and showed it immediately. A few seconds after kick-off, the Dutch touched the post before seeing Rui Patricio miraculously return a powerful strike from Til (46th). The goalkeeper in great shape kept his people alive in stride with a new phenomenal parade by sending back a super-powerful shot from Malacia (49th) on the bar. Valuable stops when his team needed them most, because in the second act, Roma almost only suffered the game and the attackers of the Dutch formation lacked precision each time in the last gesture.

And the more time passed, the more José Mourinho’s band retreated to completely lock the meeting and keep this precious advantage. In a style specific to Special One, Roma ended up keeping this lead until the end and therefore won in this match to win the first C4 in history. The first European Cup in the history of Italian training as well. For his part, after winning the C1 with Porto and Inter Milan, then the C3 with Manchester United and Porto, José Mourinho won the C4 with Roma. The 5th European trophy of his career, his 28th overall. And the Roman city, which has been waiting for a trophy for a very long time, will be able to celebrate until the end of the night (or the week) in view of the explosion of joy from the supporters at the final whistle.
