HJK vs Vikingur Preview and Predictions

HJK vs Vikingur
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 17 July 2018
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Telia 5G-Areena (Helsinki).

HJK snatched a well-deserved 2-1 win in the first leg against Vikingur and they will go into the decisive tie as firm favorites on the back of a solid home form.

The defending Finnish Champions won each of their last 7 matches at home turf scoring 2 or more goals in all of them.

Besides, they are unbeaten at home in 5 Champions League games with 2 wins and 3 draws. The highlight among those are stalemates against APOEL and Astana.

This represents the tough task at hand for the side from Faroe Islands, who hardly come across quality oppositions often.

Vikingur won four games on the trot before the home defeat to HJK last week, but as we mentioned earlier, the quality of those oppositions are debatable.

The first leg of the corresponding tie was the first h2h meeting between the two sides.

Vikingur have fond memories of their previous visit to Finland as they defeated Inter Turku 1-0 in the 2013/14 Europa League qualifiers.

HJK vs Vikingur Prediction

It is not a surprise that most bookies are expecting a one sided HJK win in this contest and we have no reasons to believe otherwise.

As we mentioned earlier, HJK have a solid home record and a good scoring form to go with it and this is going to be a tough day for the minnows from Faroe Islands.
