Tammy Abraham grabbed the winner as AS Roma booked a place in the inaugural final of the UEFA Conference League with a 1-0 victory over Leicester City.
The former Chelsea forward crashed a brilliant header beyond Kasper Schmeichel on 11 minutes to net his 25th goal of the season and secure a 2-1 success on aggregate for Jose Mourinho’s men.
Mourinho had called upon the home support to play their part and they duly responded with a partisan atmosphere that helped inspire their side to a super-charged start.
Leicester gradually improved but struggled to test Rui Patricio and did not muster a shot on target until the 79th minute when James Maddison’s tame strike was easily saved.

Roma seemed content to drop deep and defend through to the final whistle as the Foxes simply did not do enough to truly threaten a comeback.
I Giallorossi will now meet Feyenoord in the final in Tirana, Albania on May 25.
