In what has been a mixed domestic season for Leicester City in the Premier League, with the Foxes failing to keep pace in the fight for continental qualification, a European run has been somewhat of a shining light.
After dropping out of their Europa League group in third place, they entered Europe’s third competition in the playoff round, and they thrashed Randers 7-2 over two legs before seeing off French outfit Rennes, eventually triumphing with a 3-2 aggregate win thanks to a 2-0 victory on home turf.
That booked a semi-final tie with Dutch high-fliers PSV Eindhoven, and, after a goalless first leg, Brendan Rodgers‘s side fell behind in the Netherlands and trailed by one goal with 15 minutes to go.
James Maddison then levelled the scoring, before Ricardo Pereira popped up with an 88th-minute winner to see them come out on top away from home and progress to the final four.
With the Midlands outfit 10th in the English top flight, after consecutive draws with Newcastle United and Aston Villa, the Europa Conference League presents their only viable chance to play on the continent next season, and they will hope to gain a lead in the tie on Thursday with home advantage.
Leicester City are set to remain without midfielder Wilfred Ndidi and defender Ryan Bertrand, while Jonny Evans and Boubakary Soumare are also not expected to feature.
Given the absences in midfield, Rodgers could deploy the trio of James Maddison, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Youri Tielemans, with Wesley Fofana and Caglar Soyuncu partnering up at the heart of the defence.
Jamie Vardy is fit to feature after several injury issues throughout the season, while Patson Daka is also vying for a place in the starting XI, having hit six goals across Europa League and Europa Conference League action this season.
Roma will likely remain without attacker Nicolo Zaniolo, who fired them to the semi-finals with a hat-trick against Bodo/Glimt, after he missed the Inter Milan game through injury, while Bryan Cristante is sidelined and Leonardo Spinazzola is not expected to be thrown in from the start after his injury layoff since Euro 2020.
Tammy Abraham will lead their line, having hit 24 goals in 48 appearances this season since a summer switch from Chelsea, including eight goals in 10 Conference League games.
