Roma will face RB Salzburg in the Europa League knockout playoffs in late February following this afternoon’s draw at UEFA’s headquarters.

The Giallorossi will travel to face the Austrian side for the first leg on February 16th before the second leg takes place at the Stadio Olimpico the following week on February 23rd.

In the meantime, Salzburg manager Matthias Jassile commented the draw in a press conference earlier today. The young technician expressed his excitement at facing Jose Mourinho’s side.

“We can’t wait to play them. Roma won the Conference League in the summer and are at the top of one of the best leagues in the world. It is a top-level team.”

“They have one of the best and most successful coaches in the world, José Mourinho. We are certainly not starting as favorites, but we will try to play with courage and show our style of football.”
