HB Torshavn vs HJK Helsinki Match Preview
Lassi Lappalainen opened the scoresheet and not even an early red card for Faith Obilor could deny HJK a comfortable first-leg win over HB Torshavn, as O’Shaughnessy doubled the lead just before half-time and Lappalainen made it 3-0 with a beautiful goal just after the hour mark.
Klubi have thus bagged their third win in four outings with just the 1-1 draw against KuPS interrupting the streak, which has us hoping they’re travelling to the Faroe Islands in great spirits too – which really makes it hard to believe HB have what it takes to overturn this one.
HB Torshavn had come into the first leg in a good mood and on the back of some convincing displays domestically, where they bagged four consecutive wins through June – beating EB / Streymur (6-4), IF (1-5), Skala (0-3), and AB (5-0) with 19 goals scored along the way.
Heimir Gudjonsson’s men have felt short of depth in quality to overturn the clash and simple shaky at the back on some occasions, which proved costly as the rivals converted their chances. They will now hope for more in front of the home fans but getting it will be no easy task.
We will thus back HJK to punch their ticket to the 2nd Qualifying Round with a win in the second leg too, as we go for an Away win at 8/11 with William Hill, which seems like great value seeing how well they coped with ten men in the first leg.
We don’t feel we’re in for as many goals this time around, though, and we’ll now stick our necks out for Under 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with 888 – hoping to see the visitors base such a success on a solid defensive approach before anything else.
