Match preview

After an empathic comeback last Tuesday, will Bodø/Glimt keep their Champions League dream alive?

The Yellow Horde appeared to be in a bit of trouble a fortnight ago, losing their first leg 1-0 to Linfield in Belfast.

Nevertheless, eight nights ago, the Norwegian champions bounced back in style, running out 8-0 winners in the Arctic Circle.

Hugo Vetlesen, Victor Boniface, Ulrik Saltnes, Amahl Pellegrino, Runar Espejord and Alfons Sampsted all on target.

So, Kjetil Knutsen’s side have now won 11 consecutive European home games, form that took them to the Europa Conference League quarter-finals last season.

This year, Bodø/Glimt have already guaranteed they’ll be back in a UEFA group stage, but will they stay on course in this competition?

Žalgiris Vilnius meanwhile, having already caused on upset in Scandinavia, are looking to repeat the trick.

A week ago, the Lithuanian champions dumped out Malmö, winning 1-0 at home and then 2-0 in Sweden.

Kehinde Oyewusi and then Renan Oliveira on target in last mid-week’s shock victory on the road.

The Green Whites got all the way to the play-off round last season, beaten, coincidentally enough, by Bodø/Glimt.

This season, they’re already guaranteed to become the first Lithuanian club to reach a UEFA group stage, a fantastic achievement.

341 days on from their last meeting at Aspmyra Stadion, a game the hosts won 1-0, will this one go the same way?
