27 goals for Abraham in debut season

Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori are yet to convince Gareth Southgate, but the duo had a sensational debut Serie A season to remember. And both of them ended the campaign the way they started it.

Tomori won the Scudetto with Milan while Abraham’s two goals against Torino on Friday meant the striker ended the campaign with a respectable 17 goals to go with 9 strikes in the Conference League all the way until Wednesday’s final.

Roma secured a Europa League success based on their league position. This would mean they would only target to win the Conference League against Feyenoord. Jose Mourinho, who labeled the tournament as Roma’s Champions League, aims to be the first coach to win all the three current European competitions.

When and where to watch?

The match kicks off at 20:00 on Wednesday 25th May 2022, and the entire match will be available on BT Sport 1.

Unbeaten run for Feyenoord

Feyenoord reached the Conference League final without losing a single game. Four of their games were against the former European Cup winners Slavia Prague. Feyenoord were also one of the teams to win the big trophy in their heyday.

The semifinal was a rollercoaster against Olympique de Marseille. In a tie that had two passionate sets of fans, Feyenoord won by an aggregate score of 3-2. All the five goals scored in the first-half of the first-leg at Feyenoord.

Marseille had enough chances to turn the deficit at Velodrome, but Arne Slot’s side held on to reach a final of an European competition for the first time since Pierre van Hooijdonk inspired them to UEFA Cup victory over Borussia Dortmund in 2001/02.

First meeting since 2015

The two clubs met in the 2014-15 Europa League as Roma prevailed with a 3-2 victory. After their draw at Rome, in the decisive return leg, Gervinho scored the winner moments after Feyenoord lost two substitutes with red cards dished by Clement Turpin, who will referee Saturday’s Champions League final.

Nicolo Zaniolo, who scored a hattrick in their win against Bodo/Glimt, could return to the lineup while Henrikh Mkhitaryan is absent with a hamstring injury. Leonardo Spinazzola returned to the side in the final match of the Serie A season.

Justin Bijlow remained sidelined for Feyenoord, but their attacking trio of Ceyril Dessers, Reiss Nelson and Luis Sinisterra is the big factor in their success in Europe.

Historic night for Mourinho or a first European trophy in 20 years for Feyenoord?

Mourinho was in tears after his side salvaged their place in the final with a narrow win against Leicester City.  He’s ready to make history in Tarana on Wednesday night. For Feyenoord, who are more successful than Roma in Europe, it’s all about winning a first continental trophy after two decades.
