Bodo/Glimt vs KI Klaksvik Tips and Prediction
Last year, Bodo/Glimt won the Norwegian top division for the second time. They finished first in the division with 63 points after 30 games, qualifying them for the first round of the European Cup qualifying.
After 12 games in their first league campaign, the Yellow Horde are sixth in the standings with 19 points, 11 points back of league-leading Lillestrom.
Between June 18 and June 29, Bodo/Glimt enjoyed a four-game winning streak, but they come into this match after losing to Odd 3-2 on Saturday in league play.
Last season, Kjetil Knutsen’s team advanced to the quarterfinals of the Europa Conference League after defeating AZ and Celtic in the round of 16 before falling to Roma, the eventual champion, 5-2 on the road.
The scale of the job ahead of Bodo/Glimt is evident from the fact that they were defeated by Legia Warsaw at this stage of the Champions League last season and that they have never advanced past the group round of the European Cup.
When it comes to KI, the guests are coming off of a 4-2 league victory over NSI on June 29 that made it four straight victories for the Faroese squad.
Mikkjal Thomassen’s team will enter this encounter with confidence as they presently sit atop their domestic league standings with 43 points after 15 games.
KI lost to RFS 6-5 on the road in the first round of the Europa Conference League qualifying competition last season, but they did advance to the second round of the 2020–21 Champions League qualifying competition before falling to Young Boys.
The Faroe Islands team entered this two-legged match as the underdogs because of their recent Champions League performance, which included five losses and one victory. The winner of the match will face either Linfield or the New Saints in the second qualifying round of the competition.
Bodo/Glimt made an impression in the Europa Conference League last year, and they’ll be hoping to advance to the following round of qualifying. Although KI should not be taken lightly, we anticipate the home team to easily win the opening leg on Wednesday night.
