Champions League – Qualifications: HJK Helsinki vs Rabotnicki Betting Preview

In the second leg in qualifications for the UEFA Champions league, Helsinki will host Rabotnicki.

After goalless draw in the first leg, Helsinki will have another 90 minutes to show their quality. HJK was better side in the first match, but they failed to score.


In the last match in Veikkausliiga against SJK, HJK rest many important players. Heikkilä (18/1 d), Tainio (13/1 m), Väyrynen (17/0 m), Lod (19/3 m), 2nd top scorer Alho (16/5 f) and top scorer Kandji (15/6 f) all were out and all should be fresh and ready to be in the starting eleven against Rabotnicki. In the first eleven also should be an experienced attacker Mikael Forssel (13/5 f).

Despite the fact that they played without many important players they have managed to win SJK 2-0. (Btw, SJK was the second at the table before last match against HJK and after loss they dropped at the 3rd position).

Rabotnicki finished the last season at the 1st position in Macedoninan league. I wrote about Rabotnicki last week before the first match and mentioned that many important players left the club. More about it you can read here.

Helsinki is in the great form, they are in the middle of the season and they played many competitive matches so far and that’s their big advantage here. 

Rabotnicki have managed to save their net in the first leg, but today it will be very hard for them to avoid defeat.
