UEL 2023-24 Round of 16 is set to be underway

De Kuip will be the centre of attention when Feyenoord and Roma lock horns in the Europa League knockout stage, first leg. The Rotterdammers are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in all competitions and they must be high on confidence following a win in the Rotterdam derby. They’re firmly second in the Dutch league, unbeaten in the last seven at the De Kuip, where they’ve also kept four consecutive clean sheets.

The Giallorossi, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-2 loss to Inter. The team’s balance might need some fine-tuning, but the direction of travel is the right one, with De Rossi in charge, Roma have scored ten times in four league games. Now Roma are called to show the same brand of football in Europe where their away form has been very poor. This will be an exciting clash for fans for sure.

Kick-Off:

Thursday. 15th Feb 2024, 11:15 PM (IST), 05:45 PM (GMT), 12:45 PM (EST)

Stadium: De Kuip

Form

Feyenoord Form (All Competitions): W-W-W-D-W

AS Roma Form (All Competitions): L-W-W-W-W

Players to Watch

Calvin Stengs (Feyenoord)

Stengs can break down defences through his own movement, through cutbacks from wide positions and through deploying incisive passes from central positions. Combined with his developed tactical empathy, Stengs can rotate positionally with teammates and remain effective. He is physically aggressive with good close control, making him very effective in hold-up play. 

Paulo Dybala (AS Roma)

He is also a competent striker of the ball, and even if he continues to favour his left foot there is a variety to his finishing. Dybala most impresses with his control and the small, quick movements he makes under pressure. He is capable of dribbling or combining through congested areas of the pitch.

Match Facts

  • Feyenoord Rotterdam haven’t lost in their last 6 games.
  • AS Roma have scored at least one goal for 5 consecutive matches.
  • In the UEFA Europa League, AS Roma have performed better than Feyenoord Rotterdam.
