European football returns this week and will see Bodo/Glimt host Roma at the Aspmyra Stadion on Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the Europa Conference League.

Bodo/Glimt's relentless run in the Europa Conference League has been nothing short of spectacular. They beat Scottish powerhouse Celtic 5-1 on aggregate in the playoffs before seeing off AZ Alkmaar in the last 16 with a 4-3 aggregate victory.

The Norwegian side are currently on their farthest run in Europe and will be looking to go as far as they possibly can.

Roma faced Dutch outfit Vitesse in the last 16 of the Europa Conference League. They won the first leg 1-0 via a Sergio Oliveira winner. They then played out a 1-1 draw in the second leg, with star striker Tammy Abraham scoring a late equalizer to ensure the Italian outfit secured an aggregate win.

Jose Mourinho's side are one of the stronger teams in the competition and are favorites to lift the continental title at the end of the season.

Bodo/Glimt vs Roma Prediction

Bodo/Glimt are in immense form at the moment and are unbeaten in their last 33 competitive outings, a run dating back to early August last year. They have performed brilliantly against their midweek opponents in their previous matchups and will be looking to take confidence from that.

Roma are performing well at the moment as they are unbeaten in their last nine games across all competitions. They failed to beat their Norwegian hosts in the group stages and may have to settle for a draw this week.

Prediction: Bodo/Glimt 2-2 Roma
