Over 2.5 Goals
Last week’s first leg tussle between Zalgiris and Bodo/Glimt in Lithuania developed into a real slugfest where both teams showed an eye for goal in an exciting 2-2 draw. That was the eighth time in ten fixtures involving the Norwegians where over 2.5 goals were scored and we’re tipping the same bet to land when the attack-minded hosts go on the hunt for more goals on Thursday.
Highest Scoring Half: Second
Bodo/Glimt have been prolific scorers this season, though we noticed an interesting trend in their recent assignments that could open up an opportunity in the market this week. Eight of the last ten goals scored in games featuring the Norwegians were notched after the half-time interval, including three of the four efforts struck in their first-leg draw with Zalgiris last week. That run provides compelling evidence to suggest that backing the second half to see more action than the first on Thursday could be a successful wager.
Both Teams to Score
Both teams scored twice in last week’s first-leg encounter between Bodo/Glimt and Zalgiris and at better than evens, the odds for a repeat performance in the return fixture look favourable. Zalgiris have scored at least once in six of their last nine matches and in four of their seven continental fixtures this term and having unlocked the Bodo/Glimt defence already, they should be worth a consolation effort in Norway.
Bodo/Glimt vs Zalgiris: Match Preview
Bodo-Glimt were just moments away from securing a first-leg lead in Lithuania last week before Zalgiris notched a late equalizer through Elhadji Pape Diaw, though the Eliteserien outfit still had plenty to be enthused about following a strong display. The Superlaget warmed up for Thursday’s crucial second-leg with a comfortable 3-0 win over Kristiansund on Sunday, in a game where Amahl Pellegrino hit a superb hattrick and they look ready to push for another positive result this week.
Zalgiris have already fallen short in both the Champions and Europa League this year and they will be determined to avoid a triple hit of disappointment in the Europa Conference League. With just one victory from their last seven matches in all competitions, the underdogs’ form is less than ideal however, and they are priced as long shots in Thursday’s second-leg as a result.
