Two weeks after Bodo/Glimt shocked European football and beat AS Roma 6-1 in Aspmera, it’s time for a new battle against Jose Mourinho’s staff in the Italian capital.
It was the first time the Portuguese star had conceded six goals in a match as a coach. The former coach of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea made seven changes, and stood with a long strong squad.
Several shopkeepers made the trip to the Eternal City, recharging them on the city streets before settling in the Stadio Olimpico.
They have a very special experience in the store.
Ola Solbakken sent Glimt in front just before the break with a superb goal, but Roma equalized early in the second half.
But the Bodø/Glimt adventure is by no means over. Eric Bothem, who weighed Rosenborg this winter and found it too light, is back at Glimt once again in the lead.
Roma pressed and equalized shortly before the end. There were no more goals, and thus Glimt was able to keep the great Italian team in a draw.
– I feel now that there are two losing points. It’s a little awkward, but in terms of performance it’s pretty good. We are absolutely on par with them,” Ola Solbakken tells Viaplay.
– I’m a little discouraged, but we get caught in the belts, mistaken for waiting with prey. But we put in an insane amount of work today, Kjetil Knutsen tells the channel.
– He adds that Mourinho’s calculations may have been a little different.
– Great start
A draw in Rome is a great result for Bodo / Glimt. Now they have good chances of winning the group, says TV 2 expert, Jesper Mathisen.
He got excited for the league leaders in the Elite Series.
“The way they play football no matter who they meet is incredibly impressive, and it’s very interesting to see Kjetil Knutsen’s team perform at such a level,” he adds.
This week has been quite a bit for Ola Solbakken. Earlier this week, he was knocked out for the national team for the first time, before sending Glimt into the lead with a beautiful goal.
The scoring is excellent, and the national team manager is of the opinion that Bodø/Glimt winger is a player he could use in the national matches now being played in November, so he deservedly been left out.
After winning the league gold medal last season, Jens Peter Heug, Philip Zinkernagel and Kasper Juncker all disappeared from the gates of Aspmyra Stadium. Mathiesen believes that the two goalscorers in Rome took it upon themselves to replace last year’s trio of Brafora.
– That Solbakken’s performance must be at this level, no one believed him before the season, and the same applies to Botheim’s highest score. Everyone thought Kasper Juncker would be missing out on the Bodo/Glimt, but no one will miss the Danish Bodo in 2021!

lying in the stars
After the embarrassing loss in Northern Norway, Jose Mourinho opted to make seven changes to the settlement at Stadio Olimpico. Well-known names such as Roy Patricio, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Tammy Abraham have all been involved from the start in trying to discipline Kjetil Knutsen’s crew.
The good news for Glimt was the return of Frederic Bjorkan, while the insecure Patrick Berg was able to be on the bench.
Bodo/Glimt shot straight down the home team’s throat, and was close to goal after just three minutes. Amahl Pellegrino has advanced many players and is placed on the death streak. Eric Bothem was a little surprised by Roy Patricio.
After that, Roma took over, and in a short time, the home team had three great opportunities to take the lead. First on finishing Tammy Abraham from 20 metres, then a block that prevented Stephan El Shaarawy, before the same man once again got a great opportunity in the next corner.

In the rest of the inning, Roma continued to draw, but defended well. Vigilant Nikita Heiken prevented many potential opportunities.
To have a break in management
But Glimt is in a flux, and just before the break, he zips right into the far turn.
Elias Hagen fired the ball at national team player Ola Solbakken, who shot the ball into the corner removable from the first touch. Scoring score for the attacking player!
Thus, the teams entered the first half with a score of 0-1, and the fans of the team rushed to Roma outside the stadium.
– We have to play our own game. We just have to keep going and not hide. Then it’s good. We have to dare to play and shit at the score,” Eric Bothem told Viaplay during the break.
– I’ll give the fans a score in the second half.

Then Mourinho had to make a move, and he made two substitutions. He could quickly give an early comeback, when one of the posts hit Brady Mo’s arm. However, the referee was not affected and booked him for diving.
But after 53 minutes, Bodo/Glimt had to give up. Stephan El Shaarawy got a chance to turn things around. Thus, the teams were equal again.
That didn’t make Glimt dig for himself. Alphonse Sampstead found Eric Bothem completely unmarked at the Stadio Roma, and he was able to nod Bodo/Glimt in the lead once again.
Thus, he did what he promised during the rest period.
Losing his ground against Bodou/Glimt is something that Jose Mourinho has a hard time accepting. Roma took control of the match, and were incredibly close to the new equalizer. First, Marius Laud saved a big chance, before a header from Gianluca Mancini hit the crossbar.
Six minutes before the end, the Italians got their paycheck, and the ball curled into the net just above the goal line from Roger Ibanez.
