A much-changed Roma were left humiliated as they were handed a 6-1 thrashing by Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League in Norway on Thursday.

The hosts raced into an early lead as Erik Botheim found space in the box to meet a low pass and tuck the ball beyond Rui Patricio. It was soon 2-0 as captain Patrick Berg played a one-two before unleashing a fine curling effort from the edge of the box to put the Norwegian champions in command.

Carles Perez handed Roma a lifeline midway through the half when he latched onto a lofted pass and tucked home, but lackadaisical defending allowed Botheim to net his second soon after the break.

Things went from bad to worse for Jose Mourinho’s side, as Marash Kumbulla was caught out in defence and Ola Solbakken raced clear before dinking the ball past Rui Patricio. Minutes later, Amahl Pellegrino robbed Roger Ibanez and broke clear to add a fifth, whilst Solbakken completed the rout with a sixth late on.
