“It is a Final for Us and for Them”- Mourinho on Zorya Luhansk Clash

Roma manager Jose Mourinho has said that today’s Conference League fixture against Zorya Luhansk will be a final for both teams.

The Giallorossi are currently second in their group behind Norwegian side Bodø/Glimt and need to win both of their remaining matches to make it through to the last 16 of the competition.

Speaking about the clash, Mourinho told Roma’s official website: “It’s very clear. If we win we are through, if we lose we are out. A draw leaves everything still up in the air. We will still have our destiny in our hands if we draw or win in Bulgaria on the final matchday. So that’s it, it’s all very clear.

“What does that mean? It means that it is a final for us and for them. It’s a really important game. It will be tough to keep playing in two competitions for months, the league and the Conference League, but it’s a problem that we want to be having. We don’t want to go out. And that’s why tomorrow we will put in maximum effort to win the game.”

Roma won their away fixture against Zorya and are heavy favorites to clinch all three points tonight. After this, they host Torino this weekend.
