Bodo Glimt vs Arsenal live: How to watch the Europa League game online and on TV tonight
Arsenal will be looking to continue their recent strong form as they travel to face Bodo/Glimt in Norway.
Mikel Arteta’s side provided further reason to be optimistic about their budding Premier League challenge with a weekend victory over Liverpool, and won their first two Group A games.
Goals from Eddie Nketiah, Rob Holding and Fabio Vieira propelled the London club to a 3-0 victory against Bodo/Glimt seven days ago, and Arsenal will once again be confident of victory.
But a trip to Nordland County might not be easy: Roma, under manager Jose Mourinho, were heavily beaten 6-1 by Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League last year.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
When and where?
Bodo/Glimt vs Arsenal is due to kick off at 5.45pm BST on Thursday October 13 at Aspmyra Stadion in Bodo, Norway.
How can I watch it?
UK viewers can watch the game live on BT Sport 2, with coverage starting at 5.15pm BST. Subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app or an online player.
Kjetil Knutsen has few major injury problems, although the Bodo/Glimt manager is still without Sondre Fet and Gaute Hoberg Vetti. Four second-half goals helped the Norwegian side overcome Sandefjord in their weekend championship, and striker Runar Espejord could return to the starting line-up.
Promising performances from Rob Holding, Eddie Nketiah and several other fringe first-teamers helped Arsenal to a comfortable victory last week and there is no doubt that Mikel Arteta will select a broadly similar side. Mohamed Elneny and Emile Smith Rowe remain unavailable for selection through injury, but Oleksandr Zinchenko is also a doubt after missing Liverpool’s win with a muscle problem.
Bodo/Glimt XI: Haikin; Sampsted, Moe, Lode, Wembangomo; Vetlesen, Berg, Saltnes; Mvuka, Espejord, Pellegrino
Arsenal XI: Turner; Cedric, Holding, Tomiyasu, Tierney; Xhaka, Lokonga; Marquinhos, Vieira, Nelson; Nketiah
Bodo/Glimt win 13/2
Arsenal win 10/21
The much-changed Arsenal side got the job done convincingly last week and should once again feel confident of securing victory in Norway. Bodo/Glimt 1-3 Arsenal
