CSKA Sofia invite Roma to Vasil Levski National Stadium in their final group stage fixture of the UEFA Europa Conference League on Thursday.

The hosts have been eliminated from the competition as they have just one point to their name after five games. Roma have the chance to finish as table-toppers if they win here and leaders Bodo/Glimt drop points in their game against Zorya Luhansk.

Roma suffered their second defeat in a row as they fell to a 3-0 loss at home to reigning Serie A champions Inter Milan on Saturday.
