(EFE) – Rome lived a real nightmare on his visit to the Bodo field, after falling this Thursday by a resounding 6-1 against the Norwegian team in the Conference League, in a match in which those of the Portuguese Jose Mourinho were unable to contain the young forward Erik Botheim, author of a triplet.
The young Bodo / Glint striker, who also signed two goal passes, at times became an imitation of his great friend Erling Haaland, with whom he shared a dressing room for years in the lower categories of the Norwegian national team.
Less stocky than his famous compatriot, Erik Botheim showed against Rome the same forcefulness that the Borussia Dortmund player is accustomed to with two goals at the beginning of the first and second half.
If Botheim opened the scoring for the hosts in the 8th minute by culminating in the area a beautiful combination, at 52 the young Norwegian forward, 21, ended any chance of victory by setting the momentary 3-1.
But the worst for Jose Mourinho’s men, who during the final stretch of the first half dreamed of the possibility of drawing after the goal (2-1) by Spaniard Carles Pérez, was yet to come.
The Roman team collapsed completely between minute 70 and 80, ten fateful minutes in which the “giallorossi” conceded three goals, two of them the work of Ola Sobakken, another of the night’s heroes, who established the final 6- 1.
A strong score that allowed Bodo / Glint to rise to the first place in group C of the Conference League with a point of advantage over Roma, which will have to improve a lot if they want to beat the Norwegian team in the match that will face both teams again on November 4 at the Olympic Stadium in the Italian capital.
