AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has qualified for another cup final after leading the club to Europa League final.
The Special one helps his lads to hold out under siege for a goalless draw with Bayer Leverkusen that send them into the Europa League Final thanks to the first leg 1-0 win.

The Giallorossi got the job done in Germany after winning the first leg 1-0 thanks to an Edoardo Bove goal.
Since some of the injured players have returned to action, the injury crisis at the Italian club started calming down.
Roma had a major boost as Paulo Dybala, Chris Smalling, and Stephan El Shaarawy were on the bench.
They were without Robert Andrich and Odilon Kossounou due to severe injuries sustained at the Olimpico, joining Patrik Schick on the treatment table.

Roma got the first chance when Lorenzo Pellegrini fired wide.
Bayer Leverkusen would have restored parity when a huge chance came through Moussa Diaby, who got away on an inspired slide-rule Florian Wirtz pass. He managed to thump the crossbar from a tricky angle, as Roger Ibanez did just enough to make it difficult.

Roma might ve without Leonardo Spinazzola for this season again due to an injury pocked in the game after 34 minutes.
Meanwhile, the play was briefly halted after the restart due to excessive fireworks and flares thrown by the home fans.
The host continued the search for a goal, but Rui Patricio made a low one-handed save on the Demirbay daisy-cutter. Then Azmoun wasted a gift as he drilled wide from 12 yards after a lucky ricochet fell into his path.

Roma may witness more injury crises as Zeki Celik and Lorenzo Pellegrini also had injuries.

It’s expected to know the injury status of the club before the weekend as they head into the final games of the league.
