Jose Mourinho resumes his hunt for trophies 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 scene this term, with Feyenoord third in the Dutch top flight and Roma down in sixth in Serie A. But in Europe it’s a different matter, with both sides now having a glorious chance to end the 2021/22 campaign by writing their names into club folklore. The final itself is being held in Tirana, Albania, with Roma getting past the likes of Bodo/Glimt, Vitesse and Leicester en route. Feyenoord, meanwhile, saw off 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 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup dring the 60s and the Anglo-Italian Cup 50 years ago are their only triumphs on this stage, with no trophy of any sort won since the 2008 Coppa Italia. Mourinho and his side are going all-out to end that barren run. Follow the Europa Conference League final match action and updates below:


Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

60 mins: Karsdorp nods the ball behind for another Feyenoord corner. It’s played short and worked very intricately before Aursnes slides 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 has made way for Jens Toornstra.

What a save this was from Rui Patricio

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

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

Nevertheless, a totally different second half! There was almost no goalmouth action in the first period. It’s been all goalmouth action since the break!

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

Abraham catches Senesi napping and suddenly looks to be through on goal. Senesi then opts to pull him back and the England international chooses not to go down. When he can’t reach the ball he then pulls up and calls for the referee to give the free-kick and possible red card. Nothing is given. It goes to 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 into the middle it looks for a moment to have put Patricio in trouble before he backpedals to claim a difficult cross.

OH WHAT A SAVE! It’s a delightful move from Feyenoord as Sinisterra sprints down the right and turns it back for Geertruida whose 20 yard thunderbolt is tipped onto the post by Patricio!

The corner is then swung in and the flick on narrowly evades 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 brilliantly gets back at him to recover the ball.

CHANCE! Oh two superb opportunities for Feyenoord! The corner is played short and when it’s eventually sent low into the box Mancini turns it against his own post! 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 have started this second period so fast!

Second half: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

46 mins: Here we go then with the second half. Roma are 45 minutes away from a first ever major European trophy.

HT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

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

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

HT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

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

HT: Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

This was Jose’s rather disappointing reaction to that opening goal. To be fair, he has seen enough European final goals at this point.
