Bodo/Glimt host CSKA Sofia at the Aspmyra Stadion on matchday five of the UEFA Europa Conference League, with one eye on a last-16 spot.

With two wins and draws apiece so far, the Norwegian side are on top of Group C with eight points, one clear of Serie A giants AS Roma. They stunned Europe with their fearsome potential, thrashing Jose Mourinho's side 6-1 last month before holding them to a 2-2 draw in Rome.

They're not to be taken lightly, although CSKA Sofia managed to hold the side to a goalless draw on matchday two. But can they repeat the trick away from home? For the record, Glimt have scored a combined nine goals in two home games thus far. Also, the Bulgarian side are rock-bottom with just a point in the bag.

Bodo/Glimt vs CSKA Sofia Prediction

Bodo/Glimt have been the surprise package of the group stages, securing some big results along the way as they now sit on the cusp of last-16 qualification.

Sofia, meanwhile, have been the weakest side in the group and don't look capable enough to stop the swashbuckling Norwegian side from cruising to another three points.
