The 1-1 return leg in England already showed that there was not much difference between the two teams, and the second leg confirmed those relationships.
Backed by a full house, Roma got off to a good start with a buffalo punch from Tammy Abraham in a corner, then Jose Mourinho’s team closed the match more and more.
Leicester City also had very few chances together. Also in the last stage, where Roma dragged himself to the final whistle.
Olimpico rallied with glee, Mourinho allowed himself to go for a while and then let all the attention slip towards his group of players.
His rich rest can be enhanced on May 25 in Tirana with the first cup of the Conference League.
“We could have done better,” said Timothy Castanee, Leicester’s substitute. “But we conceded another goal in a corner kick.”
“Goals on set-pieces have already cost us a lot of games this season. That made the difference today as well, because Roma had few chances. So we killed ourselves again.”
Leicester no longer plays league football for a European ticket. “That’s a shame. It’s going to be an empty season. Now we have to find the motivation and we have to recharge our batteries so they finish well.”
