Bodo/Glimt vs RomaUEFA Europa League Conference, KO: 17:45 Oct 21, 2021, Asmpyra Stadium
Roma are aiming to maintain their 100% record as they visit the Asmpyra Stadium for a Europa Conference League Group C clash with Bodo/Glimt. While the hosts are likely to cause some problems, Roma appear to be a class above the rest of the teams in the group and should pick up maximum points.
Bodo/Glimt played out a 0-0 draw at CSKA Sofia in their previous Conference League fixture. It was a drab encounter with few clear-cut opportunities as they finished with just two attempts on target during the match.
The Norwegians are still unbeaten in the competition having begun their campaign with a 3-1 victory over Zorya. Kjetil Knutsen's men are playing catch-up to Roma and sit two points behind the Italians in the group.
Bodo/Glimt are unbeaten in their last 14 matches and head into Thursday’s clash with a 2-1 victory over Sarpsborg in their previous domestic fixture. However, they tend to struggle against Europe’s elite and fell into the Conference League after losing home and away to Legia Warsaw in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.
Roma were victorious last time in their last outing in the Conference League claiming a 3-0 win over Zorya. Stephan El Shaarawy opened the scoring early in the first half while Chris Smalling and Tammy Abraham added further goals.
Manager Jose Mourinho always wants to win every available trophy and has put out strong lineups in the Conference League. They have a perfect record after two matches and are top of the group with six points.
Roma will be keen to move on quickly from the 1-0 Serie A defeat to Juventus last Sunday and will fancy their chances in Norway. They have scored lots of goals in the Conference League and began their campaign with a 5-1 victory over CSKA Sofia.
