Roma vs Bodo/Glimt: prediction for the Conference League match
Roma have looked impressive in the second half of the Serie A season, but they are only 5th in the standings, five points behind the Champions League zone. The Wolves lost only three home games in Serie A, and last weekend got an easy victory over Salernitana (2:1) at Stadio Olimpico. In the last 16 of the Conference League, they defeated Vitesse 2:1 on aggregate.
Bodo/Glimtkickstrated the new Eliteserien season with a draw against Rosenborg (2:2), but a couple of days ago they earned three points in the game againt Sandefjord (2:1). The Norwegians are having a fantastic Conference League campaign. In the round of 16, they knocked out AZ (4:3 on aggregate), and then secured a 2:1 victory in the first leg against Roma in Bodo.
Roma won 4 of the last 9 games with this score.
Roma haven't conceded in 5 out of 9 games.
Bodo/Glimt conceded less than 2 goals in 3 out of 4 games.
We do not expect a high-scoring game here. Roma do not score a lot in general, and their focus is on Serie A, not the Conference League. However, they intend to get into the semifinals, so the hosts will play very carefully on the defensive and strive to keep a clean sheet.
Our prediction - total under 2.5 goals
Bodo/Glimt have created a few sensations in the Conference League, but this time we think the Norwegians won't get the upper hand. We are backing Roma in the upcoming game.
Second bet - Asian handicap(-1) to Roma
