Roma vs Leicester
UEFA Europa Conference League
Semi-finals, 2nd leg
Thursday 5 May
21:00 CET kick-off
The Romans are undefeated at home in their last ten fixtures across all competitions. Their opponents meanwhile have just a win and four losses in their last seven matches on the road. Therefore, they are my pick to register the win.
Neither of these teams is known for getting themselves clean sheets. Especially, following the first leg result and the importance of the 2nd leg, the BTTS wager sounds like a safe option.

Roma vs Leicester: Pre match conference
José Mourinho, Roma coach: “I wouldn’t mind a game like the first leg, where Rui Patrício only had to make one save. That would mean we are well organised. We know we are playing a really good side and will have to be at our best. The fans can make the difference.”
Brendan Rodgers, Leicester manager: “We’re playing now in a one-off game. I know we have been able to do a good job against difficult teams and that has really helped us […We will show] the same character we have shown to get to this stage. We know how to get the job done, Rennes and PSV were difficult games against good sides. It’s a similar mentality.”
