The away goals rule no longer applies in Europe, but VAR will be active today, unlike the rest of the Conference League so far.

Ranieri reached his career high at Leicester City by winning the Premier League title against all odds in the 2015-16 campaign.

He remains a hero for the Foxes supporters, but even they cannot compete with the fact Ranieri is a born and bred Romanista.

The 70-year-old tactician is at the Olimpico this evening with his wife.
