HJK Helsinki vs HB Torshavn Match Preview
HJK Helsinki host HB Torshavn for the first leg of their 1st Qualifying Round Champions League clash looking to build on a comfortable win over HIFK (0-2) last week, where Kaan Kairinen and Sebastian Dahlstrom put it beyond doubt in the first half already despite seeing the attacking line fail to produce once again.
Klubi have thus extended a three-match unbeaten streak, after beating Mariehamn (0-2) and holding KuPS (1-1) to a draw in late June. More worryingly, Toni Koskela’s men have been conceding more goals in front of the home fans and only bagged one win in last six outings here, which will have the crowd at Telia 5G-Areena with a lot on their minds.
HB Torshavn return to Champions League after five years out and they come into the match in great shape in the final third, where they beat EB / Streymur (6-4), IF (1-5), Skala (0-3), and AB (5-0) to leave on a three-week domestic break in great spirits.
Indeed, Faroe Islands side have scored a high total of 19 goals on those four occasions and will now have high hopes they can show off – led by youngsters Adrian Justinussen and Ari Olsen in the final third. Breaking down HJK should prove much more of a challenge, though, and it’s a wild longshot to back them to cause an upset.
We this feel HJK should have what it takes to secure a comfortable win in a high-scoring contest looming, as we back them with Asian Handicap -1.5 at 11/20 with bet365 – which feels like more of a banker bet with obvious difference in depth of quality.
However, Helsinki rivals have struggled to keep it together defensively at this ground and we feel HB Torshavn will be able to get on the scoresheet too, which has us backing a Yes on Both teams to score at an eye-catching 2/1 with bet365.
