Roma survive penalty drama against Feyenoord at Olimpico

Roma eliminated Feyenoord 4-2 on penalties in a dramatic second leg from the Europa League. The regular time of "Olimpico" ended in a draw - 1:1 and the total score swelled to 3:3.

The two teams met in the third season in a row in Europe and the "Wolves" came out victorious again. This time it happened in the most dramatic way possible - with penalties. Thus, after four consecutive eliminations from Europe after penalty kicks, Roma finally managed to get rid of the curse

In a crazy first half, the two teams traded goals in just the opening quarter of an hour. First, Santiago Jimenez scored a lucky shoulder goal for Feyenoord, but in the 15th minute, Pellegrini blew up the stands at the Olimpico with his powerful shot, which turned into a beautiful goal for 1:1.

There were more interesting moments in front of both goals until the end of the half.

After the break, the opponents slowed down and, as if logically, brought the match to extra time, in which nothing much happened again, until it was the turn of the penalties.

There, Romelu Lukaku made the first pass, but then Mile Svilar saved two consecutive shots from Feyenoord players and with a score of 4:2, Roma moved on.

In another match of the tournament, Milan suffered a 2-3 defeat at the hands of Rennes, but it did not prove fatal due to the classic 3-0 success that the Italian giants had from the first leg.

Benjamin Bourrigaud became a hero for Rennes with his three goals, but they did not bring the French team anything more than just a prestigious success. The French managed to take the lead twice, but Luka Jovic and Rafael Leao equalized.

Bourrego scored again for 3:2, but Rennes could not fight for anything more in this clash.
