Rome finished second in Pool J, making him a potential opponent of Red Bull Salzburg and LASK in the semi-finals. The visitors were already tied to the group before the match, bringing six wins, two draws and three defeats in six games.

Wolfsberger began with ambitious pressing and presented the Romans with absolute problems, but had to accept himself in the initial phase, the first goal. Dzeko appeared alone in the box, Goalie Alexander Kofler impressively came out of the gate and brought down the Bosnian team. The penalty kicked Perotti absolutely turned (7).

The response from the WAC was only three minutes away. Anderson Niangbo came in from the right, shooting hard to score after Florensi. Then a balanced game developed, although it was clear that the Romans had the higher individual class.

Edin Dzeko scores for AS Roma

Proof of this was given in the 19th minute. Amadou Diawara played a marvelous hole pass to Perotti who unselfishly dropped Dzeko and the keeper just had to push the ball into the empty goal. As a result, the WAC, which had to do without the sick Mario Leitgeb and Marcel Ritzmaier at short notice, fought fiercely for the equalization, but more than one goal from Weissman (25), who was denied aside, did not look so far.

The Israeli took center stage again in the 48th minute, his header after a cross from Michael Novak landed on the cross. Eleven minutes later was the next chance for the guests: Michael Liendl put Niangbo on stage, if Schlenzer was defeated by Roma keeper Antonio Mirante.
