After delivering a clean sweep of winners in the Scottish Premiership playoff final on Monday night, SlipsTips is back to cast his eye over the Bet Builder market ahead of Wednesday's Europa Conference League final between Roma and Feyenoord.
Roma vs Feyenoord (Wednesday, 20:00)
The National Arena in Tirana plays host to the Europa Conference League final on Wednesday night, as Roma and Feyenoord face off for a shot at continental glory.
Jose Mourinho's men got the better of Leicester City in their semi-final to seal their passage to the final, on a night where my recommended Bet Builder landed.
As for Feyenoord, they have knocked out Partizan Belgrade, Slavia Prague and Marseille to reach this year’s inaugural showpiece.
The Serie A side enter this contest as general 13/10 favourites inside 90 minutes, while their Dutch counterparts are 2/1 shots, but I’m once again going to highlight an alternative offering by heading to the Bet Builder market.
Combining Roma to lift the trophy and under five match goals will bring about a 4/5 play with Bet 365 and that looks like a nice way in.
Whilst Feyenoord’s attacking threat should not be underestimated, I suspect Jose Mourinho’s nous and tactical ability will count for plenty here, and that his Roma side will ultimately do enough to get over the line.
The Italian giants have enjoyed a strong second half of the season, having avoided defeat in 20 of their last 24 matches across all competitions, not to mention they have a considerable ace up their sleeve in the form of free-scoring Tammy Abraham.
Given that Mourinho's sides tend to adopt a pretty cautious approach to the game, coupled with what's at stake, I'll also throw under five match goals into the mix.
Each of Roma’s six knockout ties in this competition to date have featured four goals or fewer and I see no reason to oppose a repeat here given that Mourinho’s sides tend to be involved in very low scoring games.
With all things considered, the aforementioned Bet Builder holds plenty of appeal as the first-ever edition of the Europa League Conference League reaches its climax on Wednesday night.
- Roma to Lift the Trophy
- Under 5 Match Goals
- Bet Builder – 4/5 (Bet 365)
