Leicester vs AS Roma is one of the first two legs of the semi-finals of the European Cup/Europa Conference League 2021/22. This competition took place at King Power Stadium.
Leicester’s biggest good news before kick-off: Jamie Vardy has fully recovered from his injury and is ready to start. The British star was in fact back in the competition with Aston Villa this past weekend. However, in that match, Vardy only came on from the bench. He came on for Patson Daka (71′).
With the return of Jamie Vardy, Leicester promises more ball deployment options. Jamie Vardy can both ‘stand alone’ and coordinate with surrounding satellites. James Maddison or Youri Tielemans therefore has a reliable address to make passes.
Coach Jose Mourinho, of course, understands this. The special person and his associates have probably prepared no less than 1 plan to deal with The Foxes’ players ‘stuffing the ball’ for the 35-year-old striker.
Mr. Mourinho of course understands Leicester. In the composition of AS Roma, there are many players who have competed with representatives of the Premier League. Rui Patricio, Chris Smalling, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Henrikh Mkhitaryan or Tammy Abraham are 5 of them.
With the experience of coach Jose Mourinho and players who have played in the Premier League, AS Roma promises to win a favorable result before the second leg.
