On its way to the group stage of the Champions League, the home team showed quality, but also certain weaknesses. After the 3:0 victory in the first round against Klaksvik, it was expected that the second leg would be just a formality.
Instead, Bodo almost got eliminated, but somehow they “survived”.
In the second round, they lost 1:0 away from Linfield in the first match, and after that then won 8:0 convincingly at home. We have to mention that Bodo is in a really great goal-scoring form, considering that they have scored 15 goals in the last 3 matches in all competitions.
Also, we have to say that lately, they have been playing games every 3 days, which means that the consequences of the strenuous rhythm could be visible on the field in this match.
The team from Lithuania is one of the more pleasant surprises in these qualifications. Although they struggled in the first round, we must say that they left a very pleasant impression on us.
In the first round, they only managed to eliminate FC Ballkani in overtime of the second match, and then it seemed that Malmo would routinely beat them in both games. In the second round, Zalgiris managed to make a real feat, since they twice defeated the much more experienced and better Malmo.
They showed that a patient and disciplined game can bring results, so we expect a very cautious approach from them this time as well.

Injuries and suspensions
Bodo/Glimt: Sondre Brunstad Fet, Morten Konradsen, Brede Moe, Ulrik Saltnes.
Zalgiris: No absences.
We are expecting a duel between two teams that play in opposite rhythms. Bodo/Glimt is a classic attacking team, while Zalgiris plays much more patiently and with a special focus on the defensive segment of the game.
It was this style of play that allowed them to eliminate Malmo in the second round, and we will remind you that Malmo is a team that plays very similar to Bodo/Glimt.
We believe that Zalgiris will defend in this game, and in their favor is the fact that the home team plays in a very hard rhythm for a long time, so fatigue could have consequences.
