AZ vs Bodo / Glimt Prediction

AZ Alkmaar have been out-of-sorts in recent weeks but need to put their best foot forward if they are to secure qualification. However, their home form leaves a lot to be desired.

Bodo / Glimt have been one of the surprises of the season on the continent and a major reason for their success has been their potent attack. We are backing the Norwegian champions to keep their fine run going by securing a high-scoring draw.

Prediction: AZ 2-2 Bodo / Glimt
