Bodø/Glimt - Rosenborg 0-4

RBK awoke after half-time once again, and played circles around Glimt. RBK hasn't lost at Aspmyra since 1979.
Rosenborg have scored 17 out of the 24 goals after half time, 24 out of 33 if you include the cup. Bodø/Glimt have allowed 17 out of 21 league goals in the second half. So it was not surprising that the crowd had to wait until after the pause for the fun to begin.
The first goal should have come after 13 minutes. Stian Theting passed to his goalie. Rade Prica caught the ball, and was fouled by keeper Pavel Londak - and the ref. called an offside! The ball was sent by an opponent, so referee Svein Erik Edvartsen and the lineman Kim André Johnsen made a tremendous blunder.
"I can't understand how they can be four people with headsets... I wonder if they use them to play music - why don't they talk together!? If one guy misses the situation, three others see it. The penalty was clear as day. I seldom get agitated, but now I am," Erik Hamrén explained to TV2.
Instead a header from Alexander Tettey was the closest RBK got to a goal before half time despite owning the game. Glimt couldn't keep up, but had one good finish from Jan Derek Sørensen.
The first corner didn't come until the 51. minute, but then the game exploded:
Marek Sapara began by sending a free-kick with a twist into the goal from 30 meters. The minute afterwards Rade Prica should have doubled the lead with a header from a near-dead angle, but the ball went just wide.
Just when RBK was about to replace Trond Olsen with Didier Konan, the old Aspmyra-hero scored after playing one-two's with Tettey and Prica.
Tettey also began in Glimt as a junior, and wanted to join in on the fun. Sapara left the ball for Tettey, who took it with him and scored from 20 metres.
After that Tettey stole the ball from Runar Berg on the midfield and let an unguarded Prica have it. The Swede missed, but the Estonian goalkeeper gave a rebound, which Tettey sent into the net with his left foot.
Glimt threw in the towel, and the last ten minutes RBK didn't do anything, but pass the ball around.
"We played well. We dominated the first half too. If we had gotten a penalty like we should have... goals change games and that is why this one ended like it did," Hamrén concluded.
