From the onset, AS Roma displayed a dominant performance, leaving Brighton struggling to find their footing. Despite Lamptey’s best efforts, the Seagulls were unable to penetrate the Italian side’s robust defence.

The Ghanaian international found it challenging to make a significant impact in the game and even picked up a yellow card for his efforts.

AS Roma’s relentless attack proved too much for Brighton. The Italian side’s clinical finishing was on full display, leaving the Seagulls’ defence and goalkeeper with little chance of preventing the goals. Goals from Romelu Lukaku, Paulo Dybala, Giancula Manicini and Bryan Cristane put Brighton to bed.

The defeat leaves Brighton with a daunting task in the return fixture. The Seagulls will host AS Roma at home, but with a four-goal deficit to overturn, their journey in the UEFA Europa League quarter finals hangs in the balance.
