Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Leicester City and Roma take on each other at King Power Stadium in a highly-anticipated Conference League semi-final. The Foxes have been having their ups and downs in the 2021/2022 season, and, as a result, they sit in 10th place in the Premier League table. The good news for the hosts is that key attacker Jamie Vardy has overcome his injury, while all Soumare, Ndidi, and Bertrand remain in the recovery room.
The Giallorossi, on the other hand, suffered a 3-1 loss to Inter in their last league match. Both Zaniolo and Fuzato are back from their domestic bans, while Tammy Abraham should continue to lead the line for the capital club. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at King Power Stadium, and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (AS Roma):
AS Roma is a professional football club based in Rome. Roma were founded by a merger in 1927 and they play in the Italian Serie A. Roma’s fiercest rivals are Lazio and it has to be noted that both capital clubs play their home games at Stadio Olimpico. The two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Capitale, which is considered one of the most exciting derbies in the world of football.
The Giallorossi (The Yellow and Reds) have won three Serie A titles (1941/1942, 1982/1983, 2000/2001), while winning nine Coppa Italia trophies. The colour of Roma’s shirts is imperial purple with a golden yellow trim. A number of top-class footballers were part of Roma in the past, but Francesco Totti is undisputedly the club’s biggest legend.The Prince of Rom made his 601 appearances for Roma on 14 May, 2016 when the Giallorossi recorded a 3-1 win over Milan at Stadio San Siro.
