Roma and Feyenoord hoping to turn the corner in Conference League final

Starved of success in recent years, both teams travel to the Arena Kombetare knowing they will be backed to the hilt for the climax to a successful inaugural season for UEFA's new tournament.

Such is the desire to be at the final that the 20,000 capacity stadium in the Albanian capital is nowhere near big enough, with Roma coach Jose Mourinho saying that the two teams' fans "would have filled the Santiago Bernabeau".

Feyenoord said they were disappointed with the paltry allocation of just 4,000 tickets and asked fans not to buy from touts, but that is unlikely to deter supporters hungry for a rare chance for European glory.

Roma were last in a continental final 31 years ago -- losing the UEFA Cup to Inter Milan -- and their fans haven't seen their team win a trophy since 2008.
