Leicester vs Roma: TV channel, live stream, kick-off time, team news for CRUCIAL Europa Conference League semi-final tie

LEICESTER CITY are back on the big screen THIS THURSDAY when they take on Jose Mourinho's Roma in a huge Europa Conference League semi-final clash.

The Foxes have had an underwhelming Premier League campaign so far – and their goalless draw against Aston Villa on Saturday epitomised that.


But, Brendan Rodgers' men have displayed their qualities in the Europa Conference League.

Especially when they had to dig deep and snatch a marginal victory away against PSV Eindhoven in the quarter-final.

However, Roma dismantled their opposition in the last round, and Jose Mourinho will have a point to prove on his return to England.

What time does Leicester vs Roma kick-off?

  • Leicester City take on Roma THIS THURSDAY – April 28.
  • The match is scheduled to kick-off at 8pm UK time.
  • King Power Stadium in Leicester will be the chosen venue for the first leg which holds approximately 32,000 spectators.
  • This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since data has been recorded.

However, Jamie Vardy is expected to be thrown in from the start following his substitute appearance on the weekend.

Elsewhere, Roma have taken a huge blow as quarter-final hat-trick hero Nicolo Zaniolo, is unavailable due to a muscular injury.

And the Italian will be joined by Bryan Crisante who is also struggling with muscle issues.

But a return for Leonardo Spinazzola could be on the cards as he seems to have shaken off his injury which he sustained at the Euros last summer.
