Who lifts the first UECL crown ?
It hasn't been the best domestic season for Jose Mourinho and AS Roma as their 3-0 victory on the final day against Torino was nothing but a formality given that their sixth-placed finish was already confirmed. Nonetheless, it could still be termed a somewhat successful season for Jose Mourinho and Co. provided that he manages to lead his side to glory this week in what would be his fifth European crown. They had to do it the hard way against Leicester in the semifinals with both sides having played out a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium in the first leg. The tie's decider would come in the return leg as Tammy Abraham- a man who has rediscovered his form under Jose Mourinho- scored the only goal of the game. Roma head into this final with just two wins in their last eight games in all competitions but the win against Torino on the final day would surely do a world of good for their confidence. Would they use this as a stimulus to lift their first-ever European title ?
Feyenoord, just like their opponents, came up short in their domestic league as they could only manage a third-placed finish. They also didn't close off their domestic campaign on the best note, losing to FC Twente on home soil- a loss which dashed their 12-game unbeaten run. Arne Slot and his troops are known to be a very attacking side and this was very evident in their semifinal first-leg clash against Marseille where they emerged 3-2 victors. They could also be very defensive when they need to be and they showed this in the return leg as they completely shut out the opposition in a goalless draw in front of a hostile Orange Velodrome. Although it has been a while since they went all the way in European competition, Feyenoord does have some European pedigree with the side having picked up the European Cup in 1970 before UEFA Cup triumphs in 1974 and 2002.

Roma vs Feyenoord Prediction: 2-1
Jose Mourinho has been in four different European finals and has gone on to win all of them so it would be safe to say that he does know how to get the job done when it matters most. Feyenoord should have a thing or two to say about that and although they should bet on them making it a little bit difficult for Roma but we expect the Italians to eventually secure their first-ever European trophy this Wednesday.
