The Europa League quarter-final tie between Feyenoord and AS Roma is scheduled to take place on Thursday at De Kuip. These two teams had previously met in a closely contested continental final less than a year ago. Although AS Roma emerged victorious in the Europa Conference League decider, Feyenoord is currently in good form and on track to become Eredivisie champions, making them well-positioned to take revenge. 

Feyenoord has been performing exceptionally well since their defeat to AS Roma in May last year, despite losing players to richer clubs across Europe. They have not lost in the league since November and recently crushed Shakhtar Donetsk 7-1 in their Europa League last-16 second leg. The only blemish on their record was their controversial KNVB Beker semi-final loss to their arch-rivals Ajax last Wednesday.

Feyenoord vs AS Roma Prediction

Currently, Feyenoord sits comfortably on top of their league, eight points ahead of their arch-rivals Ajax. Their impressive performance can be attributed to the excellent management of Arne Slot, who has been recently linked with clubs like Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United. Although doing well in Europe is a desirable goal, Feyenoord’s current priorities understandably lie domestically. Their star player, Orkun Kokcu, has been one of the club’s top performers this season, and rumors suggest that Manchester United is showing a keen interest in signing the 22-year-old.

On the other hand, Roma currently holds the third position in their league and has won three of their last five league games. There have been rumors that Jose Mourinho has become more mellowed down, and this has helped players like Paulo Dybala and Lorenzo Pellegrini to thrive at the club. 

Mourinho has been linked with a potential return to high-profile clubs like Chelsea and Real Madrid, which could be an interesting development. However, for now, the Special One’s main focus will be on winning another European trophy with Roma and reaffirming his status as one of the top managers in the world.

As for the match between these two teams, we predict that it will end in a draw, with both sides playing at their best to secure a positive result.
