Match preview

After a shock victory at Windsor Park, can Linfield complete the upset as they make the long trip north to the Arctic Circle.

Eight nights ago, Kirk Millar’s impudent chip just seven minutes from time snatched a 1-0 victory for Linfield in Belfast.

Will that advantage prove to be decisive for David Healy’s team?

Bodø/Glimt came into this clash as overwhelming favourites having reached last season’s Europa Conference League semi-finals.

In the last 12 months, the Norwegian champions have defeated Roma, Celtic, AZ and many more, playing 20 matches in UEFA competition last season.

Kjetil Knutsen’s side certainly won’t be panicking just yet, given that they’ve won their last ten European home games, scoring 26 goals.

So, despite being a goal to the good, this is a daunting prospect for the Northern Irish champions.

The Blues are hoping to reach a UEFA group stage for the very first time, coming from behind to beat The New Saints in the previous round.

Linfield’s best-ever run came in 2019, losing to Qarabağ in the play-offs, and they’re already guaranteed to match that.

Here though, Bodø/Glimt will need Aspmyra Stadion to continue to be a fortress.

The winners of this tie will face Žalgiris Vilnius or Malmö in the Champions League third qualifying round.

The losers will drop into the Europa League third qualifying round and face the losers of Qarabağ or Zürich.
