Ky it’s writing i full i tyre:
After easily advancing from the second qualifying round, Bodø / Glimt are ready to start the penultimate round before the play-off for the Conference League. The same round last year, the boom stopped when the team was stopped by AC Milan.
This year, on paper, there is significantly easier resistance when FC Prishtina of Kosovo is in the opposite half of the field on Thursday night. The first match is in the heat of Southeast Europe.
“We can hardly wait for the match. We reach the extreme heat and a fantastic audience that makes a lot of noise “, says Kjetil Knutsen, and probably hints at a similar experience in the Polish capital earlier this summer.
“We meet a good team. But this time it is the capital of Kosovo that should be visited. The temperature is just as high, but we hope that it is more airy in the arena of Prishtina than in the stadium of Legia Warsaw, which is a more intimate stadium “.
“It is a great course and we meet a good team. A team you could say is somewhat similar to Legia. We think they can play 3-4-3, even though they have changed a lot in the team “, reveals Knutsen who admits that the coaching staff has spent time analyzing Thursday’s opponents.
The analysis shows that there will be no “park walk” for the Yellow, despite the fact that the Kosovar league is among the lowest ranked leagues in Europe.
“It’s a good team. The team that finished second in the league there lost narrowly to Feyenoord in the previous round. The best teams are a bit underrated. We meet a good opponent who has a lot of good players on the offensive, defends well from time to time. When they burst, they burst a lot. “We have to be patient and use the opportunities when they come, in a difficult game outside.”
“I hope to see a little more than we saw there. I think we play two good matches against Valur and we are strong, but then I think we still have a lot to continue “, insists the coach and adds that the only thing that works are hard training and frequent games.
“We work hard to improve the details in the game. “We are interested in developing that team here and then there is an exam every time we play a new match.”
The match between Prishtina and Bodo / Glimt takes place on Thursday night at the “Fadil Vokrri” stadium.
