Rematch excitements are ahead of us!
Tonight you have a chance to see the 2nd leg game between HJK and Malmo from the qualification campaign of the UEFA Champions League. The first game was a very intense football show with plenty of goal opportunities, where the hosting club Malmo was more successful and rightfully won the duel with the result of 2:1. They’ve created more goal attempts, 7 shots on the target, and 2 of them in the back of the net of HJK.
The first goal was scored at the very end of the first half. Then the response came in the 68’ minutes of the game from the HJK when they even the result (1:1). But in the 74’ minutes of the game, the Blue Ones scored their second goal and placed the game's final result (2:1).
Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi meanwhile played one match at Finland's Veikkausliiga against Haka and won the game with the result of 2:0. This solid performance must put extra confidence for Toni Koskela’s crew before tonight's game against Malmo. One goal deficit shouldn't be a great obstacle if HJK manages to bring the right approach from the very beginning of tonight's game, so it would be interesting to see the tactical approach and mindset that the Finlandians are going to present at their home stadium at Bolt Arena in Helsinki.
Malmo FF on the other hand also won the away game in their Swedish national league Allsvenskan against Mjallby last Saturday with the result of 2:0. So this makes the Blue Ones even more motivated to bring another great football performance on their visit to Helsinki tonight. Jon Dahl Tomasson believes in his squad, and he knows that they will do their best to end up as the better team from the double match against HJK and continue to the semi-final.
We expect a very interesting duel with an offensive approach from both teams where Malmo FF will be with better chances to enter the semi-final.
