Roma welcome Leicester to the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday in the second leg of the Europa Conference League semi-final, with the tie finely poised.

A 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium last week means both sides will feel they have a strong chance of progressing to the final, although Jose Mourinho's men are strongly fancied in their own stadium.

Ahead of the game, GOAL brings you everything you need to know, including how to watch, team news, odds and more.

Roma remain a tough side to beat in their own stadium with the Italians yet to taste defeat in front of their own fans in the six Europa Conference League matches they have contested this term.

Leicester, meanwhile, have not been overly convincing on the road in Europe this season and the Foxes know they are in for a tough evening when they visit the Italian capital.
