Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Farul Constanta and Helsinki square off against each other at Central Stadium Hagi Academy in what is expected to be an interesting Conference League qualifier. Farul recorded routine back-to-back wins over Flora in the previous qualifying round, but they head into Thursday’s clash following a 3-1 loss to Rapid Bucuresti in the national championship. Mihai Popescu limped off with injury in the last league match, with fellow defender Kevin Boli likely to step up.
HJK, on the other hand, aim to recover from the Europa League defeat to Qarabag. The Finnish champions, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Farul’s party in Ovidiu. A man to keep an eye on in the visiting team will be Bojan Radulovic, who scored a hat-trick in a 3-1 win over Inter Turku at the weekend.
