Match preview

Bodø/Glimt made a name for themselves in Europe last season, so can they go even further this time?

Just last year, the Norwegian champions made this debut in a UEFA group stage, coming in this competition, but got all the way to the quarter-finals, eventually ousted by Roma.

This time round, Kjetil Knutsen’s team so nearly got into the Champions League, but were eliminated by GNK Dinamo in the play-off round.

Then, in their debut Europa League campaign, Bodø/Glimt took third place, below Arsenal and PSV but above Zürich.

At home, the Yellow Horde have won 16 of their last 19 European matches, so will they continue to be formidable in the Arctic Circle?

Lech Poznań meantime are reigning Polish champions, with this their first appearance in the knockout phase for 12 years.

The Railwaymen won qualifiers against Dinamo Batumi, Víkingur Reykjavík and Dudelange, before finishing above Hapoel Be’er Sheva and Austria Wien in their group.

Similar to their opponents, John van den Brom’s team are unbeaten at home in Europe this season, winning six out of seven, but are winless in ten continental away fixture.

So, expect Bodø/Glimt to prevail in this first leg at Aspmyra Stadion.
