Europa League: HJK vs Krasnodar

HJK vs Krasnodar Betting Tip and Predictions. In the second leg of the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League, HJK Helsinki take on Krasnodar.

HJK was suffered a humiliating defeat in the first leg (5-1) and they have many chances to reach the group phase of the UEFA Europa League. Anyway, they will try to make positive result and try to win this match upfront their supporters, but their recent form is very poor. Home team have managed to win only one of their last seven matches in all competitions (1-2-4). Anyway, for them is more important league match against Ilves (without defeat in the last 6 league matches) on Sunday.

Krasnodar made one step forward to Europa League and it would be a big surprise if they failed to go through in that competition. They are playing very good this season. In the Russian Premier League they are standing at the top 6 and with their participation in Europa League, this season could be very good for them. Visitors are defeated only once this season.

HJK vs Krasnodar injuries and suspensions

HJK will be without few players for this match. Nikolai Alho (0/0 f), Veli Lampi (14/0 d), Mac Kandji (0/0 f), Sebastian Sorsa (21/1 d), Gideon Baah (11/0 d), Taye Taiwo (1/0 d) and their second top scorer Demba Savage (17/6 f) are all out. On the other side, Krasnodar have almost full squad available except Joãozinho (0/0 m) who is still out due to injury.

HJK vs Krasnodar Betting Tip and Predictions

HJK is without motivation, Europa league is far from them and I don’t believe that they can win this game. Krasnodar is much better team and IMO they are capable to take another win, this time in Finland.
