“It’s not that complicated” Bodo manager believes he has worked out Arsenal

Arsenal faces Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League today as they look to get back-to-back wins in the competition.

They won their opening fixture against FC Zurich, but their second game against PSV was postponed because of the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

They will go top of their group if they can beat the Norwegians, but Bodo is not a team you want to underestimate.

They have one of the finest managers in Norway and Kjetil Knutsen has done his homework on the Gunners.

He reveals ahead of the match that he watched Mikel Arteta’s side face FC Zurich and he didn’t think they were hard to beat.

He said via Dagbladet

“When you see it over time, it’s not that complicated. They have a number of rotations at left-back, central midfield and left wing. There they have the freedom to change positions, but they have much less of it on the right side.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Every club is beatable and so is Arsenal, but we are in top form and it would require more than an extra effort to beat us.

The team we field in the game tonight knows they have to bring the points home, so we expect a top performance from them.

  1. The local pub team can probably understand how Arsenal play, but that doesn’t mean they can beat us.

    That said, I have a feeling this will be a difficult opponent for any side, although the away leg probably more so since they’re up inside the Arctic circle. In the last season or so, Bodo thrashed Roma 6-1 and beat Celtic 3-1 at Celtic Park, 5-1 on aggregate). Underestimating them by playing a patchwork side that hasn’t played together could lead to problems.

  2. I think Bodo Manager didn’t do his homework properly, we have Marquinhos as Saka’s understudy who can make chaos on opponent’s half, And we have Vieira and Nelson who can play as ring wing-forward too. Defensive side we have Tomiyasu, White and Cedric

  3. He should go and work again for the 2nd leg.
    The more he looks, the less he will see.
    Arsenal has so much on their arsenal to give Bodo 4 next time

  4. And so he thinks Arteta wasn’t clever enough to do a homework on his team too. Every clever manager does some homework prior to meeting your opponents. At the end, the one with the best players or tactics usually wins the game like what happened on Thursday
