    Forebet is back for more football predictions in the Europa Conference League where the latest trends, mathematics, data and insights is handed to you to conclude the probability of this match between Bodo/Glimt and Ajax.

    This fixture sees the second leg of the Europa Conference League playoffs, after a thrilling first leg that ended with Ajax pulling back a late draw in stunning style.

    After going 2-0 down thanks to a brace from Albert Gronbaek, Bodo/Glimt looked to be inflicting more damage on the Dutch giants in what has been one of their worst seasons in recent memory.

    However, Ajax finally bounced back and brought one back through Branco van den Boomen.

    Steven Berghuis was the hero in the end as he scored in the 97th minute to bring the tie level, which now means there's everything to play for up in Norway.

    However, the Norwegian side are now without Odin Luras Bjortuft after the defender received a straight red card in the first leg.

    Things have looked a little bit more positive for the Eredivisie side in the past few weeks, as they have swapped a spot down in the bottom five for a spot in the top five.

    Nevertheless, a loss to Heerenveen and a draw with NEC means more winless games for Ajax with the club also getting a commendable draw at home to PSV Eindhoven.

    The last victory for Ajax was against Heracles, as Brian Brobbey scored twice alongside a finish each from Berghuis and Krisitan Hlynsson.

    Such results leave the 2021/22 champions with a gap of three points on AZ Alkmaar in sixth and adrift of Feyenoord in second by 16 points.

    Ultimately, a spot in the Europa League seems to be Ajax's best shot this season, but this in itself may only come as a result of winning the Europa Conference League.

    As for Bodo/Glimt, they are currently in the offseason of the Eliteserien, but by finishing above Brann by nine points, the club won the league once again and for the third time in the past five seasons.

    This means the meeting with Ajax in leg one was the last competitive game for Bodo/Glimt and their first since losing to Club Brugge back in the Champions League on matchday six.

    They also lost in the Norwegian Cup final to Molde just before that.

    Forebet predicts a draw and over 2.5 goals.
