Scorers: Abraham 5′, Zaniolo 23′, 29′, 49′.

Nicolö Zaniolo scored a hat-trick as Roma shrugged off a first leg defeat to thrash Bodø/Glimt.

Tammy Abraham gave José Mourinho’s side the lead before a stunning team move saw Lorenzo Pellegrini send Nicolò Zaniolo through on goal to slide the ball through the legs of Nikita Khaykin.

Zaniolo added a second moments later as Nicola Zalewski burst away from a Bodø/Glimt corner before setting up Zaniolo to chip over Khaykin.

The 22-year-old completed his hat-trick at the start of the second half to set up a meeting with Leicester City in the semi-finals.

Scorers: Payet 34′.

Scorers: Traoré 14′; Dessers 2′, 59′, Sinisterra 78′.

Leicester book place in first European semi-final

Scorers: Zahavi 27′; Maddison 77′, Pereria 88′.

Leicester City came from behind to beat PSV Eindhoven and reach the UEFA Europa Conference League semi-finals.

The hosts were given a gift to take the lead in the 27th minute, when Youri Tielemans gave the ball away outside his own area before it worked it’s way to Eran Zahavi to slot into the far bottom corner from a tight angle.

Brendan Rodgers’ side almost equalised immediately with James Maddison’s goal-bound shot deflecting over the head of goalkeeper Yvon Myogo but denied by the overhead kick clearance of Jordan Teze.

Substitute Patson Daka had a golden chance to equalise for Brendan Rodgers’ side when he was sent through on goal but his shot flashed just wide of the far post.

Thankfully for Daka, Maddison pulled his side level in the 77th minute. The 25-year-old arrived late in the box to smash Ayoze Perez’s cut-back into the top corner to level the tie.

And just as it looked as if we were heading to extra time, the Foxes found their winner.

Daka saw his shot parried by Myogo but it only went as far as the on-rushing Ricardo Pereria who fired home the rebound to silence the Philips Stadium and book Leicester’s place in the final four.
