Analysis and forecast for the match of the 2nd qualifying round of the Champions League “Bodø-Glimt” – “Linfield” (27.07.2022)
This Wednesday, in the Norwegian city of Bodø at the Aspmira stadium, the local Bodø-Glimt will try again to correct the mistakes that they regularly make in away matches in European competitions. A week ago, the Norwegian champion returned with nothing from Northern Ireland. The club sensationally lost to Linfield (0:1), thus for the first time putting itself in a situation where it needs to recoup.

Bodø-Glimt has been among the most interesting teams in Europe since last season. Among those about which until recently nothing was heard, of course. The club won the Norwegian championship twice in a row and returned to European competition after 18 years. And in the debut draw of the Conference League, he reached the quarterfinals and almost stopped Roma with Jose Mourinho. This success turned the recent underdog into one of the big favorites in the qualifying round.

However, Bodø-Glimt is making its way into the group stage of the main club tournament of the continent with the same creak as it did last season, when the team failed to get past the Polish Legia. Now the lot has given the Norwegians much less experienced opponents, but the problems have not gone away. The wards of Khetil Knutsen still have poor implementation and terrible performance in a foreign field.
They are really disastrous on the road – just one win in their last seven matches in all tournaments on the European arena. And only in two of them, Bodø-Glimt conceded less than two goals. Russian goalkeeper Nikita Khaikin had to take balls from the representatives of the Faroe Islands and Northern Ireland four times from the net of his goal. And a completely different picture at home, where the Norwegians have won 10 out of 11 previous European Cup matches.

In Belfast, a week ago, Bodø-Glimt played the way a favorite should be – they possessed the ball, hit a lot on goal, and doubled their opponent in terms of moments. Just did not implement anything. You can complain about the failure, but it is also important to note that the main striker Victor Bonifase did not play in the match from the first minutes. Bodø-Glimt scored four goals in this Champions League, and everything is on account of the 21-year-old Nigerian footballer, who with Linfield came out only for 24 minutes.

However, it is not worth blaming a coach who decided to give rest to an important player who recently returned from a torn knee ligament. In many ways, also because Linfield in the last year in European competition also jumps above its head and deserves praise in its address. This team very rarely even made it to the second round of the Champions League qualification, but on its field it regularly pleases with the quality of resistance.
The Northern Irish club can also be called exclusively home. At home, it is much easier for blue not only to contain the attacking impulse of the opponent, but also to catch him on counterattacks. Linfield have only lost one of their last four home matches in European competition, where they have only surpassed 10 shots on goal once. Whereas on the road things are much worse – for the same four meetings in the assets of the guests there is one goalless draw.
Linfield still has enough problems in the game. The loss of last season’s top scorer Christy Manzinga, who scored 17 goals, has not yet been compensated. Newcomer Robbie McDade has not a single ball to his credit even in test matches. All creativity is again built on the experienced Kirk Millar – the best assistant of last season is forced to take over the game more often.

The Northern Ireland Championship has not started yet, and the team has to catch the full-fledged rhythm of the game precisely in the qualifying matches. In friendly matches, Linfield only once opposed an opponent of a obviously higher level – at home they lost to the Scottish St. Mirren. Therefore, in Norway, the blues will have to face a serious challenge, and a one-goal advantage will hardly help.

Bodø-Glimt gave intrigue to this confrontation, once again failing to overcome a more modest opponent on the road, but at home they will not make such a mistake. After the defeat from Linfield in the Norwegian championship, the hosts powerfully dismantled the outsider Yerv (5:0), but everyone expects the same reaction from the team in the Champions League. The Northern Irish have not won away matches in European competition for several years, and now they cannot avoid defeat. In our opinion, it is worth considering the victory of Bodø-Glimt with a handicap (-2.5) with a coefficient of 1.98.
Forecast and bet on the Champions League qualifying match Bodø-Glimt – Linfield July 27, 2022
In this match, the favorite is so obvious that it is pointless to consider betting on a clear victory for the hosts. On the one hand, this may be surprising, because Linfield has already proven that it is capable of presenting a sensation. And Bodø-Glimt at the start of the season barely resembles the team that reached the quarter-finals of the Conference League in April. Nevertheless, the periodic failures of the Norwegian club cannot be called catastrophic. Bodø-Glimt has already taught its fans that in European competition it is exclusively a home team. There are still enough resources, and therefore we are waiting for a reaction to the defeat in the first match and a confident victory.
