Venue: Telia 5G-Areena (Helsinki).
Finland needs one more win to ensure that they progress to the mains of the competition. With them having the home advantage this Friday, and the worst of the lot, Liechtenstein, taking a trip to Helsinki, it seems the perfect recipe for a home win.

Finland vs Liechtenstein Prediction
Finland, aided by the support of the home crowd the last match-day, trumped incoming Armenia in style. Not only did the hosts score three goals in a row, but they kept their nets clean for the whole of ninety minutes as well.
Importantly, Teemu Pukki, who had impressed a lot in the initial stages of the Premier League competition, chipped in with two goals to ensure a win for Finland.
Meanwhile, Liechtenstein, despite having the home advantage, came up short against group-toppers Italy, in their latest fixture. Right away in the second minute itself, the leaders opener their account, and later added four more goals without conceding any, to post a 0-5 scorecard.
As things stand, Finland is the best of the lot after Italy, and their second spot in the table is completely justified. Right now, they need two more points to solidify their entry into the Euros.
They do have the home advantage, and importantly, they are taking on the worst team in the group. Not only Liechtenstein have been winless in their preceding twelve match-ups, but they have managed a total of just two wins from their former thirty-eight attempts as well.
Furthermore, they also lost to this same opponent in the reverse fixture of this match-up. Then, despite their home advantage, the team conceded a 0-2 loss, and this Friday, on the road, they are surely expected to suffer.
As such, expect Finland to easily register a victory this Friday.
