Roma headed into the Europa Conference League semi-finals on the back of an impressive turnaround in the previous round, as they came from behind to dump out Bodo/Glimt.

Jose Mourinho‘s men had already suffered a shock 6-1 defeat to the Norwegian outfit in the group stage, and they fell 2-1 behind in the first leg, only to put up a dominant 4-0 thrashing in the reverse fixture in Italy.

Tammy Abraham drew them level on aggregate inside the first five minutes before Nicolo Zaniolo hit a hat-trick to book their semi-final tie with Leicester City, and the Giallorossi made the trip to England for the first leg last week.

Lorenzo Pellegrini gave Mourinho’s side the lead in the 15th minute, but they were eventually forced to return to the Italian capital on level terms after conceding a second-half equaliser.

While Roma should not be disheartened by coming into the second leg level with home advantage, they do come in on the back of a disappointing goalless draw with Bologna at the weekend, ruling out a top-four finish in Serie A as a result, and they will now be keen to bounce back and earn a place in the final on Thursday.

Roma are not set to have to deal with any forced absences after the recent returns of striker Nicolo Zaniolo and midfielder Bryan Cristante, with full-back Leonardo Spinazzola also fit to feature in the squad after a long-term layoff since Euro 2020.

Mourinho looked to rest several key players in the weekend’s game with Bologna, as the likes of Chris Smalling, Tammy Abraham, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicola Zalewski all dropped to the bench, and although he had to call upon several late in the game, they are set to return from the outset on Thursday.

Abraham will lead the line, with the Englishman netting 24 goals in all competitions for the capital club since his summer switch from Chelsea.

Leicester City have doubts over the fitness of midfield duo Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and James Maddison, after they missed out on the Tottenham game due to calf and hip issues respectively, while Wilfred Ndidi and Ryan Bertrand will continue spells on the sidelines.

Elsewhere, centre-backs Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana were both said to be rested at the weekend, and they should come back into the starting XI on Thursday, with Caglar Soyuncu only expected to keep his place if Rodgers deploys a back three for the trip to Italy.

Jamie Vardy was fit to feature off the bench last time out, and he could be in line for a start, while Kelechi Iheanacho and Patson Daka are also pushing for places at the top end of the pitch with Ademola Lookman and Harvey Barnes likely to play if the Foxes line up with a wide front three.

Roma possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez; Karsdorp, Cristante, Pellegrini, Zalewski; Mkhitaryan, Zaniolo; Abraham

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu; Pereira, Soumare, Tielemans, Castagne; Barnes, Vardy, Lookman
