Roma will face Salernitana on Monday as they begin their quest for a top-four Serie A finish after making it to a European final for the second consecutive season.
The Giallorossi advanced to the Europa League final thanks to a tenacious performance in Leverkusen,
but they have struggled to score goals and accumulate points recently in league action, while their opponents have now guaranteed their place in the first tier.
Roma, who had brought a slender advantage to Germany with them, bit their teeth and defended staunchly for the entire 90 minutes on Thursday
to defeat Bayer Leverkusen and advance to the Europa League championship match against Sevilla.
Seven days after defeating Roma 1-0 in the Italian capital, last year's Europa Conference League champions held Xabi Alonso's team scoreless at the BayArena in a classic Jose Mourinho performance.
