Lech Poznań vs Bodø/Glimt betting tips: Europa Conference League preview, predictions, team news and odds


Match preview

There was nothing to separate the two clubs in the Arctic circle last Thursday, but there must be a winner this time.

The first leg at Aspmyra ended goalless, with the best chance falling to Lech’s Filip Marchwiński in the second half.

So, having earned a draw on the road, the Polish champions are now overwhelming favourites to advance.

Lech Poznań are competing in the knockout stage for the first time in 12 years, having finished above Hapoel Beer-Sheva and Austria Wien in the group stages.

John van den Brom’s team have won six of seven European home fixtures this season, drawing the other, so will be confident of maintaining that record.

Bodø/Glimt meantime got all the way to the quarter-finals of this competition just last season, eliminating Celtic and AZ to get there.

Thus, the home fans inside Stadion Poznań are likely to be celebrating a home win.
