Bodo/Glimt will welcome AZ Alkmaar to the Aspmyra Stadion for the first leg of their UEFA Europa Conference League round-of-16 tie on Thursday.

The hosts were awarded 3-0 away victory over Aalesund in the Norwegian NM Cup on Sunday.

Prior to that, they successfully navigated their way past Celtic with a 5-1 aggregative victory in the playoff last month. A 3-1 victory in Glasgow was followed by a 2-0 victory in Norway.

AZ Alkmaar secured a 3-1 victory away to Nijmegen in the Eredivisie on Sunday. Jesper Karlsson starred with a brace to guide his side to a comfortable win.

They secured their spot at this stage of the competition by virtue of their first-placed finish in Group D last year.

Bodo/Glimt vs AZ Alkmaar Prediction

AZ Alkmaar had one of the best defensive records in the group stage, although their rearguard is bound to be tested against a rampant Bodo/Glimt attack.

Games involving the hosts are usually end-to-end affairs and there is little to choose from between the two sides. We are backing the spoils to be shared in a high-scoring game.
