Roma vs Bodo/GlimtUEFA Europa League Conference, KO: 20:00 Apr 14, 2022, Stadio Olimpico
Roma will be aiming to finally get the better of Bodo/Glimt as both clubs clash in the second leg of their Europa Conference League quarter-final tie. The Norwegians have already shown they have the quality to trouble Roma and can hold out for a draw on Thursday.
Roma are desperate to finally get one over on Bodo/Glimt after failing to beat the Norwegians this season in three attempts. Despite taking the lead through Lorenzo Pellegrini in last week’s first leg, they still ended up suffering a 2-1 defeat.
The Serie A side’s inability to overcome Bodo/Glimt must be troubling for manager Jose Mourinho as they have only lost to the Norwegians in their last 11 matches across all competitions. They warmed up for Thursday’s second leg with a 2-1 win over Salernitana in Serie A last Sunday.
Roma have also been solid at the Stadio Olimpico in recent weeks and are unbeaten in their last eight matches. However, they have been held three times in that run and have also played out two draws in their last three home matches in the Conference League.
Bodo/Glimt showed great character coming from a goal down to claim a 2-1 victory in last week’s first leg. Ulrik Saltnes struck the equaliser after the restart while Hugo Vetlesen netted the winner one minute from time.
That result extends Bodo/Glimt’s impressive unbeaten run as they have still not tasted defeat since August. Kjetil Knutsen’s men claimed a 2-1 victory over Sandefjord in a Norwegian league fixture last Sunday with Saltnes once again on target.
Bodo/Glimt also have a fine record on their travels and are unbeaten in their last 19 away matches across all competitions. However, they have drawn five of their last six away matches in the Conference League.
How the bookies view it
Head to head
Bodo/Glimt are unbeaten in three matches against Roma, claiming two wins and a draw. The Norwegians hold a 2-1 victory from the first leg while the last meeting at the Stadio Olimpico ended in a 2-2 draw.
Players to watch
Tammy Abraham had a quiet game in the first leg but is still expected to carry the goal threat for Roma. The striker has found the net four times in his last four home matches and is priced at 8/11 by bet365 to get on the scoresheet.
Amahl Pellegrino also failed to get on the score sheet for Bodo/Glimt last time out but could be worth keeping an eye on. The forward has scored in two of his last three Conference League matches and is priced at 9/2 by bet365 to find the net.
Anything else catch the eye?
There have been lots of goals in the three meetings between Roma and Bodo/Glimt and Thursday’s clash should be no different. Two of the three meetings have produced over 3.5 goals which is priced at 19/10 with SBK while both teams could be backed to score at 11/10 with Unibet.
There have been more goals after the break in the three meetings between both teams so the second half can be tipped as the highest scoring half at evens with William Hill.
