UECL FINAL PREVIEW: AS Roma vs Feyenoord

It’s the turn of the UECL final with Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma facing off against Arne Slot’s Feyenoord.

I presume Roma getting to this final isn’t much of a surprise to anyone considering the team and manager’s pedigree.

The above goes for Feyenoord as well, but I bet we would have ranked Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City, dropped from the UEL, above them.

With the above well said, let’s take a look at each team’s journey to today’s final.

WATCH THE UECL FINAL HERE

UECL (AS Roma)

Giallorossi came first in Group C having managed 4 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss.

However, a shocking 6:1 defeat to Bodoe/Glint was the talking point of their group stage journey.

In fact, Jose’s men were unable to get a win in the double-legged tie between both sides.

I bet you are shocked as I was, weren’t you?

Jose’s men scaled past Vitesse in the Round of 16 managing a win and a draw after both legs.

In the Quarterfinal 1st leg, Roma was once again subdued by Bodoe/Flint, with the latter winning the 1st leg 2:1.

Nonetheless, an impressive 4:0 home victory ensured they, Roma, booked their Semifinal ticket.

Facing off against Leicester City, who have also been impressive, Jose Mourinho’s men had to rely on the exact outcomes they had against Vitesse in both legs.

In all, they managed 3 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss in the Knockout stages.

Fairly impressive, isn’t it?

Let’s now shift our focus to their opponent, Feyenoord

UECL (Feyenoord)

If you actually think Feyenoord is the underdog in today’s game, I think this recap will really help out.

Arne Slot’s men topped Group E with 14 points, managing 4 wins and 2 draws in the process.

They continued this impressive run with a 2-legged victory over Partizan Beograd in the Round of 16.

Followed it up with a win and a draw against Slavia Prague in the quarter-final, a team they played against in the Group stage.

They finally booked their ticket to the final having emerged victorious over Marseille with a win and a loss over both legs.

Shocked to know Arne Slot’s men are on an unbeaten run in this competition, aren’t you?

Guess it’s time to have a rethink then.

ADD-ON (HEAD TO HEAD)

The last time these 2 sides faced each other in a UEFA Champions, Roma emerged victorious managing a win and a draw over both legs.

Another morale booster for Jose Mourinho’s men don’t you think?

CONCLUSION

Although I am tempted to go with AS Roma based on their pedigree and the fact that they are led by Jose Mourinho, I can’t overlook Feyenoord’s impressive run to the final either.

Hmm, I guess I would just sit on the fence and enjoy the game with some bag of popcorn.
