Our football match prediction:
Helsinki failed to get their job done in the first leg of the Europa League qualifying tie against Connah’s Quay and, as a result, the Finns will have to be on top of their game in Thursday’s football match at their Telia 5G – areena if they are to make it to the next qualifying round. It is well known that HJK are a real force to be reckoned with at home and you should bear in mind that they scored 14 goals in previous home fixtures in the national championship. Connah’s Quay managed to record a hard-fought 1-0 win over Helsinki in front of home fans, but they are unlikely to repeat the success in Thursday’s clash at Telia 5G – areena. In their last away game in the Europa League qualifiers the Welsh side suffered a 1-0 loss to Vojvodina and we predict that they are going to return home empty-handed. HJK sit in top position in the Veikkausliiga standings and they are likely to overcome the deficit in the Europa League tie against Connah’s Quay.
