Match background Only this chapter

Roma are well placed to reach the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League for the second season in a row as they take the field at the Stadio Olimpico holding a 2-0 lead from the first leg of their round of 32 tie against Braga.

• Both teams kicked off their 2020/21 European campaigns in the UEFA Europa League group stage, Paulo Fonseca's Roma registering 13 points as they topped Group A, three points ahead of fellow qualifiers Young Boys, and Carlos Carvalhal's Braga posting the same number as they finished runners-up on the head-to-head rule to Leicester City in Group G.

Previous meetings
• Edin Džeko, making his first start in this season's UEFA Europa League, took just five minutes to give Roma the lead in the first leg – his 17th goal in the competition. The visitors sealed victory late on with a second goal from substitute Borja Mayoral as Braga lost at home without scoring in the round of 32 for the second straight season.

• Roma have faced Portuguese opposition eight times previously in the Italian capital, where their record is W4 D2 L2. In seven two-legged knockout ties their record is W3 L4, the two most recent having both been lost on aggregate to Porto in the UEFA Champions League – 1-4 in the 2016/17 play-offs (1-1 a, 0-3 h) and 3-4 in the 2018/19 round of 16 (2-1 h, 1-3 a aet).

• Braga have won all three of their previous two-legged knockout ties against Serie A sides, knocking both Chievo and Parma out of the 2006/07 UEFA Cup and most recently beating Udinese on penalties in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League play-offs after two 1-1 draws. Their record in Italy is W1 D1 L2.

Form guide
Roma
• Roma finished fifth in Serie A last term to qualify for the group stage for the second season running and fourth time in all. Fonseca's side were defeated 2-0 by eventual winners Sevilla in last season's round of 16, which remains the furthest the club has gone in the UEFA Europa League – though they were UEFA Cup runners-up in 1990/91.

• The Giallorossi have now made it four qualifications from as many UEFA Europa League group stage participations, with three as group winners. They secured this season’s round of 32 place with two group games to spare, doing the double over both Young Boys (2-1 a, 3-1 h) and CFR Cluj (5-0 h, 2-0 a) but dropping points in both games against bottom-placed CSKA-Sofia (0-0 h, 1-3 a).

• The Rome club lost their first UEFA Europa League round of 32 tie, going out to Panathinaikos in 2009/10 (2-3 a, 2-3 h), but have won the three since, eliminating Feyenoord in 2014/15 (1-1 h, 2-1 a), Villarreal in 2016/17 (4-0 a, 0-1 h) and Gent in 2019/20 (1-0 h, 1-1 a).

• A 0-2 defeat against holders Real Madrid in the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League is the only one of their last 18 European fixtures in the Italian capital that Roma have lost, winning 13. Their only home defeats in the UEFA Europa League have all come in the spring, with their knockout phase record at the Stadio Olimpico W2 D1 L3, the victories recorded in the two most recent fixtures.

• Roma have a perfect record of ten wins out of ten in two-legged UEFA ties when they have been victorious away from home in the first leg, the most recent case that round of 32 success against Villarreal four years ago. On the three occasions that they have won the first leg 2-0 away, they have also won the return fixture without conceding.

Braga
• Braga's 16th European qualification in the last 17 years was achieved with a third-placed finish in the 2019/20 Portuguese Liga, a season in which they also topped their UEFA Europa League group undefeated ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Slovan Bratislava and Beşiktaş before losing to Rangers in the round of 32 (2-3 a, 0-1 h).

• The Portuguese club competed in the UEFA Europa League group stage for the sixth time in the autumn, securing a fifth qualification with four wins against AEK Athens (3-0 h, 4-2 a) and Zorya Luhansk (2-1 a, 2-0 h) that offset a 4-0 away defeat and 3-3 home draw against section winners Leicester.

• Braga are in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 for the sixth time. Their record at this stage is W2 L3, beating Lech Poznań in 2010/11 (0-1 a, 2-0 h) and Sion in 2015/16 (2-1 a, 2-2 h) but losing to Beşiktaş in 2011/12 (0-2 h, 1-0 a), Marseille in 2017/18 (0-3 a, 1-0 h) and Rangers in 2019/20. They were runners-up in 2010/11, knocking out Liverpool and Benfica among others before losing the Dublin final 1-0 to domestic rivals Porto.

• Braga were unbeaten home and away in 13 European matches (W9 D4) until those two reverses to Rangers last spring. Their away record in the UEFA Europa League knockout phase is W2 D2 L6, with defeats in the last four matches.

• The Portuguese club have never overturned a UEFA tie in which they lost the first leg at home, the most recent of the six instances being the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League quarter-final against Shakhtar Donetsk (1-2 h, 0-4 a). The only time they have won the second leg after losing the first game at home was that 2011/12 round of 32 tie against Beşiktaş.

Links and trivia
• Roma coach Fonseca was in charge of Braga in 2015/16, leading the club to their first Portuguese Cup triumph in 50 years with a penalty shoot-out victory against his former club Porto in the final.

• Fonseca joined Shakhtar Donetsk that summer and led the Ukrainian side to two victories over Braga in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage, helping to eliminate his former club from the competition.

• Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante was a Benfica player from 2014 to 2016, losing both of the two games he played against Braga – 1-2 in the Portuguese Cup and 0-2 in the Liga. Among his Benfica team-mates was current Braga player Nicolás Gaitán.

• Braga defender Rolando had spells on loan at Napoli in 2012/13 and Internazionale in 2013/14.

• Roma's Carles Pérez and Braga's Abel Ruiz were team-mates in Barcelona's B team between 2017 and 2020.

• Lucas Piazón, who joined Braga from Chelsea in January, spent the second half of  2018/19 in Italy on loan at Chievo.

• Carvalhal returned to Braga as head coach in August 2020, 14 years after his first spell in charge. He coached ten other clubs in the interim but experienced just two European campaigns during that time, in which he led both Sporting CP (2009/10) and Beşiktaş (2011/12) to UEFA Europa League round of 32 successes – the former against Everton (1-2 a, 3-0 h), the latter against Braga (2-0 a, 0-1 h). In both seasons his team were eliminated in the round of 16 by eventual winners Atlético de Madrid.

Penalty shoot-outs
• Roma's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L3:
4-2 v Norrköping, 1982/83 UEFA Cup second round
3-4 v Liverpool, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final
3-4 v Real Zaragoza, 1986/87 European Cup Winners' Cup first round
6-7 v Arsenal, 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16

• Braga's record in one UEFA penalty shoot-out is W1 L0:
