Wearing the yellow uniform of Bodo is a great statistic against Jose Mourinho’s men. Two home wins (6-1, 2-1) and one draw (2-2) in Italy are the results of the Conference League.
On Thursday, the semi-final ticket is at stake.
– We have found a very effective Romaine recipe. Then we just have to keep working on the details in our game that give us better control over the game. It will be fun to compete against them again away from home. “We have all the prerequisites to perform well again,” Sampstead said in an interview with the club.
The Icelandic right-back played all three matches against Roma.
In October, just over 40,000 spectators saw Glimt earn one Stadio Olimpico point. Now another 30,000 is expected to settle wholly sold out.
– The weather is great there. When the fans sing the Roma song before the match, it is absolutely amazing. I’ve heard now that there will be more than last time, so the weather will probably be better. “We’re expecting a tough game against a good opponent,” says Sampstead.
The return of the quarter-finals took on an added dimension after the noise at Aspmyra last week. A riot broke out between Glimt coach Kjetel Knutsen and Roma goalkeeper coach Nuno Santos in the dressing room after the match.
Knutsen and Santos have been suspended by UEFA. Glimt appealed the decision, but was rejected by UEFA’s appeal committee. This means that both of them should stay out of the technical area during tonight’s game.
