Bodo/Glimt vs Roma 6-1: Giallorossi Get Dismantled in Norway

A forgettable trip to Bodo ended with one of the largest losses in recent history, as Roma looked out of sorts from the get-go. The Norwegian side never took his foot off the gas and kept piling on. The Giallorossi were overtaken atop of their European Conference League group but still hold a lead over the other sides.

As expected, José Mourinho revolutionized the lineup. Rui Patricio and Roger Ibanez were the only regulars in the XI. Riccardo Calafiori and Bryan Reynolds got the nod on the defensive wings. Amadou Diawara and Ebrima Darboe manned the midfield. Carles Perez, Gonzalo Villar and Stephan El Shaarawy supported Borja Mayoral.

Bodo/Glimt were more intense right away. They created a few chances and scored with Erik Botheim eight minutes in the game. After a plethora of quick passes, the striker wriggled free in the box and hit the net with a low-driven shot. The Norwegian club doubled the lead at the 20th minute, with Patrick Berg rifling home a lefty piledriver.

Roma finally got off the match and reacted. At the 28th minute, Diawara sprung Perez loose ball, and the Spaniard kept his aplomb in front of the goalkeeper. However, it turned out to be just a consolation goal.

Mourinho subbed in three starters at half-time and two more at the one hour-mark. However, things kept spiraling out of control. Botheim bagged his second as Alfons Sampsted pickpocketed Diawara on the baseline and found the teammate with a square ball.

Bodo/Glimt added three more goals in the span of ten minutes, all in the same method. Their forwards continuously slipped behind the offside trap, beating Patricio in one-on-one situations. Ola Solbakken notched the fourth goal. Afterward, Botheim and Amahl Pellegrino exchanged assists via through balls, with the former completing a hat-trick.
