Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Finland quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to Italy in the opening match of their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, but they quickly got back on course. Following a 2-0 win at Armenia, the Finns outplayed Bosnia and Herzegovina in their last group game, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of Tuesday’s clash against Liechtenstein. Norwich City attacker Pukki has found his goal-scoring touch and all eyes will be on him when Finland and Liechtenstein face each other in Vaduz.
The hosts, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss at Armenia and we do not believe that they are capable of shocking the Finns in the Rheinpark Stadion clash. You should bear in mind, though, that Finland are after their first win over Liechtenstein since 2009, when the two teams met in the World Cup qualifiers.

Highlighted Team (Finland):
Finland national football team played their first international game before the World War 1. The Finns were beaten by fellow Nordic side Sweden (2-5) on October 22, 1911, but eleven years later they recorded their biggest ever win on the international stage.
Finland outclassed Estonia 10-2 in Helsinki and, speaking of their heaviest defeat, the team suffered a 13-0 loss to Germany in Leipzig during the World War II (1940). Finland national team became a member of FIFA back in 1908, but they have yet to qualify for the finals of the major tournament. The Finns did not participate in the European Championship finals as well, but several top-class footballers were part of their national football team in the past.
Former Liverpool ace Jari Litmanen scored 32 goals in 137 appearances for Finland and Sami Hyypia is yet another notable footballer who played for the Eagle-owls. The colour of Finland’s home kits is white, while they play their away games in blue shirts and blue shorts.
