The Italian capital and Stadio Olimpico hosted the Round 5 game of UEFA Conferences League. Roma sealed the fate of Zorya Luhansk in this competition in the season of 2021-2022.
Viktor Skrypnyk, Zorya's manager clearly motivated his men to go for active pressure against their opponents. But the Romans had enough skills and fortitude to withhold Zorya's attacks and set their own counterattacks. Carles Perez opened the score soon enough, which was followed by a successful counterattack that ended with Niccolo Zaniolo's shot.
Shortly before the halftime, Jordan Veretout could not score the penalty kick due to the efforts of Zorya's goalkeeper. In the second half, Temmy Abraham finished what his teammates started, scoring a double and making it 4-0.
After this defeat, Zorya lost the only remaining chance to make it to the Champions League's playoffs. Viktor Skrypnyk's team will say goodbye to European competitions on December 9, with the home game against Bodo-Glimt.
