Venue: Telia 5G -areena (Helsinki).

Finland made a horrendous start to the recently finished WC qualifications, but they significantly improved the form as the time passed by to leave the very foot of the Group standings to Kosovo.

The Eagle-Owls were undefeated in last four qualifiers and they’ll be looking to keep this form going in Thursday’s friendly against Estonia at Telia 5G –areena.


Markku Kanerva can be proud of his team’s displays in the most recent period as Finland saw off Iceland before holding mighty Croatia to a 1-1 draw away from home in the closing fixtures of the qualifying campaign.

The Fins showed a rock-solid defense which is clearly something they’ll want to build on ahead of the next set of qualifiers for Euro 2020.

Dundee’s midfielder Glen Kamara is about to make his debut for the national side against the Estonians.


The story is quite similar with the visitors who have been undefeated in four straight outings before losing the final qualifier 1-2 to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Prior to that, the Martin Reim’s side kept three straight clean sheets including the goalless draw in Greece.

Finland vs Estonia: Head to head

The two sides will cross each other’s paths for the 11th time over the course of the history this Thursday.

Finland lead the tie by a single win, but they’ve failed to pick up a single win in five home outings with Estonia (three ended in a draw).

Finland vs Estonia: Prediction

The hosts are 1.55 favs to clinch the victory in their capital, but we don’t see a one-way street here given Estonia’s fine defensive form as of late.

We can thus hardly see the goal fest which makes the Under 2.5 goals FT by far the best of the betting options, set at the odds of 1.53.
