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

73 mins: 177 passes vs 372 in favour of Feyenoord so far this evening. Not amounted to anything so far.

The Dutch side work it into Dessers on the edge of the area but he can’t do anything with it and Roma nick it before drawing another free-kick.

If there is one manager you would back to run down the clock in this final 20 minutes…then it would probably be Diego Simeone. But if there was a second then it would be Mourinho.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

That still of the foul (that wasn’t given) is quite damning. Would have surely been a red card too.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

70 mins: The ball drops for Abraham in the box but it’s a tight angle and he can only fire his shot a couple of yards over the bar. Not had much to feed off of this evening, the Roma striker.

Nelson tries to find the space in behind the Roma defence but Mancini is in the perfect position to watch it drift out for a goal kick.

Smalling, Mancini and Ibanez have been absolutely superb so far.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

67 mins: Karsdorp does well to force a throw-in on the halfway line as Roma alleviate the pressure for the first time in a long while. Zaniolo then impressively forces a corner which comes to nothing in the end.

SUBS! Here is the response from Mourinho to the Feyenoord pressure. Zaniolo and Zalewski make way for Jordan Veretout and Leonardo Spinazzola.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

64 mins: Another chance for Feyenoord goes begging. Aursnes works it well down the left and finds Nelson in the penalty area but his poked effort deflects just wide of Patricio’s left-hand post.

Roma need to do something about this pressure. They have been totally dominated since the start of this second half.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

62 mins: Dessers finally appears to be through on goal as he gets beyond Smalling but Ibanez is back there to make the last-ditch challenge. Then it is brought back for a handball by the Feyenoord forward.

Roma look a lot more open in this second half. Jose does NOT look impressed on the touchline.

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.

SUB! Guus Til has made way for Jens Toornstra.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

What a save this was from Rui Patricio.

Roma 1-0 Feyenoord

57 mins: 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.
