You don't have to be an expert on Norwegian football to understand what makes Bodø/Glimt such a dangerous club. With 46 goals scored in 22 league matches, Bodø is among the most prolific scoring teams in the Europa Conference League. Thanks in part to that offensive output, Bodø is leading the way in the Norwegian Eliteserien, clinging to a three-point lead over second-place Molde with nine league matches remaining.

Led by Erik Botheim's 13 goals, Bodø, despite not being a household name among Serie A fans, should present quite a challenge for José Mourinho and Roma, doubly so when you consider the weather forecast for the 6:45 PM (local time) kick-off. With temperatures hovering slightly above freezing and mixed precipitation in the forecast, the Giallorossi will have their work cut out for them, facing an unfamiliar opponent under potentially hostile conditions.

The lineups are in and, as expected, José Mourinho has made several changes from the club's loss against Juventus last weekend. Now it's time to see if his tinkering will keep Roma's perfect Conference League record intact.
