Bodo/Glimt vs Linfield Match Analysis and Prediction

Bodo/Glimt will be looking to overtunr a 1-0 deficit when they play host to Linfield at the Aspmyra Stadion for the second leg of their Champions League second-round qualifying tie on Wednesday.

Bodo/Glimt have not enjoyed away days in Europe so far, as they very nearly let a 3-0 lead slip in their first-round qualifying encounter with KI before managing to progress 4-3 on aggregate.

They have not managed to quickly find the formula for success on unfamiliar ground, as Kirk Miller scored with 83 minutes on the clock in last week’s first leg to hand Linfield an unexpected narrow advantage ahead of Wednesday’s second leg.

The Norwegian champions went out with a point to prove on Saturday in Eliteserien action against Jerv and defeated them 5-0.

By reaching the second round of the Champions League qualifying, Bodo/Glimt have already achieved their best-ever finish in the continent’s premier competition, and their home form reads well for head coach Kjetil Knutsen.

Meanwhile, an impressive run of form has come the way of Linfield over the summer, as they have been going through friendlies and Champions League encounters with composure since the beginning of the month.

David Healy’s side needed extra time to see off New Saints 2-1 on aggregate in the first round of Champions League qualifying, but they could now reach the third round of qualifying for the first time in their history.

The Northern Irish outfit have never progressed beyond the second round of Champions League qualifying, and they made the first round proper in the 1993-94 competition before being eliminated by Copenhagen.

Linfield picked up their fifth win in a row across all competitions on Saturday, beating Loughgall 2-0 in a friendly, but out of their 18 away matches in Champions League qualifying, only three have ended in victory.

Bodo/Glimt news

Bodo/Glimt defender Brice Wembangomo only competed for the first 45 minutes for the 5-0 victory over Jerv on Saturday, but he should be fine to feature on Wednesday.

Attacker Ola Solbakken is still absent with a shoulder injury, so Sondre Sorli will expect to get the nod on the right-hand side this week.

Linfield news

Linfield have not reported any fresh concerns since the first leg. However, midfielder Cormac Austin has departed the club to join Premier League side Crystal Palace.

Head coach Healy is not likely to change the winning formular, but the visitors will cope without Joel Cooper due to a calf injury.

Prediction and Odds

Linfield were definitely underestimated in the first leg, but Bodo/Glimt went on for vengeance in league action at the weekend and will be out to make an expected turnaround.

The hosts have been excelling at home with plenty of goals in tow, a trend that we expect to continue in this game.
