Brighton showdown to mark Roma’s 50th sold-out stadium in Friedkin era

Andy Mattioli

Roma will once again play in front of a packed home crowd at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday night.

The Giallorossi will look to welcome Brighton in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16 in front of over 64,000 fans who will be attending the game, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport.

A sold out perhaps more special than many others considering that it will be the fiftieth sold-out crowd of the Friedkin era since their ownership takeover in 2020.

The newspaper calls it ‘a demonstration of love’ that establishes how what many had identified as the “Mourinho effect” is actually the Roma effect.
