While football fans grow accustomed to UEFA's newest international competition, the Europa Conference League, Roma fans will likely reserve a special place in their hearts for the ECL, for no other reason than it gave us our first official glimpse of José Mourinho's Giallorossi. After a pretty successful pre-season campaign, Mourinho officially took the Roma reins last week in Turkey for the first-ever ECL match between Roma and Trabzonspor.

Despite the unfamiliar surroundings, Mourinho's men overcame some early jitters to walk away 2-1 winners thanks to an Eldor Shomurodov 81st minute match-winner. It wasn't a flawless performance but it did set the stage for the more efficient brand of football we saw in Roma's 3-1 win over Fiorentina last weekend.

With another domestic match looming this weekend, Roma will want to make quick work of Trabzonsport today.

Can they do it?
