In the first leg, AS Roma took the lead early in the first half before Leicester equalized midway through the second half. The hosts will be hoping for more goals in this match, and their forwards like Tammy Abrahams, Nicolo Zaniolo, and Lorenzo Pellegrini have their work cut out for them.
Leicester City have been giving mixed performances of late, but they can still rise to the occasion when needed. They did well to get the equalizer in the first leg to keep this tie alive. Now they have to go for victory away from home. The Conference League presents a chance for the Foxes to redeem themselves after a disappointing domestic league season by their standards.
Coach Brendan Rodgers knows winning the Europa Conference League now presents their best chance of playing European football next season since they are currently in the bottom half of the premier league table. He will first have to improve his defense, which has failed to keep any clean sheet on the road in Europe this season.
