The UEFA Europa Conference League is a new competition designed to give even more of the top clubs in Europe a chance to compete on the continental stage, and a huge semifinal match will take place on Thursday between leicester city and Rome. The two clubs don’t have much history against each other, but managers Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho should know each other well from their time as opposing managers in the Premier League.

However, both sides would love to give their supporters a trophy to celebrate and you can see what happens when you stream the match live on Paramount+.

UEFA Europa Conference League picks for Roma vs. leicester city
Before you tune in to Thursday’s match, you need to see the Leicester City vs. Roma picks from SportsLine’s soccer insider Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine’s top soccer editor for nearly five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe.
Sutton has also been on a roll with his best bets, going 67-52 in his last 119 soccer picksreturning over $1,000 for $100 bettors.
For Rome vs. Leicester City, Sutton is backing Leicester City on the money line for a +124 payout. From a motivation standpoint, it’s pretty clear that the Foxes have more to gain with Roma sitting in a position to qualify for either the UEFA Europa League or the UECL next season through its league position.
You can also expect Rodgers’ side to want to establish itself before a difficult away trip to Stadio Olimpico for the second leg. Leicester City has won five of its last six matches at home across all competitions and Jamie Vardy coming back into the squad this weekend should give Rodgers plenty of attacking options going forward with Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka up front and james madison, harvey barnes, Yuri Tielemans and Ademola Lookman all lending to the assault.
Meanwhile, Roma is coming off a 3-1 loss to Inter-Milan in Serie A that essentially wipes away its chances of playing Champions League football next season. Mourinho will still put out a strong side here but the general focus is likely to be on holding onto fifth place in Serie A and the UEL spot that comes with it.
