Bodø/Glimt fullback Alfons Sampsted weighed in on their upcoming Conference League quarterfinals showdown against Roma.
The Norwegians host the Giallorossi on Thursday in Norway for the first leg of their double-legged affair.
“Certainly it’ll be interesting to play Roma again. It’s a huge challenge to try and replicate our performance from October (when they won 6-1),” he told serieanews.com.
“Though, we have to focus on ourselves and play our game. We also have to keep the belief in our system and ability. I think the way we play is very effective, but we need to keep working hard and staying dedicated to our work.”
“But it’s hard to explain why they had so many problems in that game. They seemed to be frustrated throughout it then ended up having to apologise to their supporters.”
“I suppose that result was a huge shock for them because they expected different.”
