Leicester and Roma are clashing at King Power Stadium in the first leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League semifinals. Leicester has been decent lately, but they are struggling a bit with scoring goals. Roma was undefeated for a long time, but they lost to Inter in Serie A this past weekend, which will jeopardize their Europa League chances.
Leicester hasn’t won any of their last 3 games, but they have lost only 1 of their last 8 games. Leicester’s EPL season has been a disappointment, and they are now in 10th place with 42 points, and as of right now, they will not be qualifying for any of the European competitions. In the Conference League, Leicester is in the semifinals, and the opponent is of the same quality as them, but it won’t be easy. Leicester has enough quality to win this competition, and if they do, they will qualify for the Europa League next season which will be amazing for them. Maddison is the leading goalscorer for Leicester with 3 goals, while Barnes has added 2 goals. Lookman has added 3 assists. I mentioned Leicester has been struggling with scoring goals, but now that Vardy is back that shouldn’t be a problem, and that will be a huge help for Leicester.
Roma hasn’t lost many games, especially in Serie A, but they did lose their last game against Inter. Roma has lost this game 3-1. In Serie A, Roma is now in 5th place with 58 points, they have scored 55 goals, but their defense is not that good this season. Roma has conceded 40 goals in 34 games. In the Conference League, Abraham is the leading goalscorer for Roma with 8 goals, while Zaniolo has added 4 goals and 4 assists. There aren’t any notable injuries in Roma as of right now. It has been a pretty inconsistent season for Roma so far, but they did get on a nice streak where they showed us a bit of what they can do. I think Roma is a good team, they have a lot of talent, and Abraham has been lighting their opponents. I think Roma has the quality to do some damage here, but they will need a solid defense against Leicester, at least on the road.
This is the first matchup between these two teams, and I think it will be a good one. Roma is in a bit of a better form, but Leicester at home is dangerous, especially with Vardy. I’m taking goals.
