Europa Conference League holder AS Roma secured their spot in the Europa League last 16 with a 2-0 victory over FC Salzburg on Thursday, clinching a 2-1 aggregate score.

The Italian side, managed by Jose Mourinho, had trailed 1-0 after the first leg but attacked aggressively from the start in Rome in an effort to overturn the deficit.

Their pressure paid off after 33 minutes when Leonardo Spinazzola crossed the ball into the box, and it deflected off a Salzburg defender towards Andrea Belotti, who scored with a low header.

Paulo Dybala then doubled Roma's lead just before the break with a stunning volley from another Spinazzola cross, sending the home crowd into raptures.

Despite Salzburg's efforts in the second half, they could not break through Roma's defense, and the Italian side held on for the win.

This victory also extended Roma's unbeaten streak to 14 home games in the knockout stages of major European competitions, excluding qualifiers.

The draw for the round of 16 will take place on Friday, and Roma will be hoping to continue their impressive run in the tournament.

With Mourinho at the helm, they will be confident of causing problems for any team they face, and they will be hoping to go all the way and lift the trophy at the end of the season.
