After some ups (four wins) and downs in the group stage (including losing 6-1 at Bodø/Glimt) Roma found consistency in the knockout phase, responding well to defeat at Bodø/Glimt in the quarter-final first leg and making the most of a packed, passionate Stadio Olimpico again to see off Leicester in the semi-finals. Their resilience came to the fore in the showpiece as they repelled a determined Feyenoord in the second half to make history by scooping the club's first European silverware.
How do Roma play?
Mourinho fields three at the back, two attacking wing-backs, solid midfielders and two dynamic players behind the lone striker, Tammy Abraham. Roma love to attack at pace, getting the ball forward with as few touches as possible. The aim is to get Nicolò Zaniolo – the final match winner in Tirana – and Lorenzo Pellegrini in space and Abraham one on one with the goalkeeper.
Who is Roma's key player?
Tammy Abraham. Replacing Edin Džeko was no easy task but Abraham has done magnificently since joining from Chelsea. The tall striker is very mobile, links up well with his midfield team-mates and takes his chances when they come. Nine goals in this competition tells its own story.
Who is Roma's coach?
José Mourinho. With two UEFA Champions League and two UEFA Europa League/UEFA Cup successes to his name, Roma's final victory made Mourinho the first coach to win all three current men's UEFA club competitions. He is both a serial winner and an expert in dealing with pressure at the highest level.
