HJK Helsinki vs Shkendija by Finwin



Shkendija won the first match at home 3-1.


HJK played pretty poorly in that game, mainly because missing few key players (Yaghoubi, Tanaka) and probably because of the pressure in away game. They made much more mistakes than normally. Shkendija played more actively and got two penalties which were a bit questionable.


HJK is a good home team. They play at artificial turf which is often difficult for visiting teams. Now that HJK got their best player Yaghoubi available, this second match will be quite different than the first. In defence, centre-back Obilor will probably return to the starting eleven and that makes the defence and lower third game better.


I don't know much about Shkendija than what i saw at the first game and based on that, HJK can beat them at home for sure.Still, HJK has problems scoring goals after selling their number one striker to Rangers. For that reason, stake 7 for odds over 1,80 are pretty good in my opinnion.

Shkendja are really solid team who managed to make a comeback that only shows how undisciplined are actually HJK.Also some past experience like 2-1 to Gent and 0-4 to Dacia and some other results says that Shekndja can hold Helsinki.Still its a good prediction but maybe at 2.20, 2.25, I think it is better to avoid it.

Yes odds would need to be higher. This is usually were it ends for HJK and other finnish teams. When they face solid average level team from europe. Home advantage for HJK but odds of 1.80 way too low. GL.

Yes, odds are too low, i agree. However, HJK is clearly better ranked team than Shkendija and they played Europa League in 2014/2015 season. I still think they win today, but my opinion is a bit biased when it comes to HJK.

@ Finwin

Cant understant the fact that ur saying the odds are too low and still putting it on a slip. Like JamesK said, today is the end of HJK Europe tour. Propably going to be a parking the bus thing for Shkendija and they going to counter attack. Mosa (Yaghoubi) is now available and well rested as he got a red card against Ilves last sunday. But all in all a draw or a minor 1 goal win for HJK is propably the outcome. Im still thinking of going for Shkendija +0,5 or a win with the rising odds!! Im from Finland and i totally would like to see a team from Finland going trough but the odds of that happening are too low.

Škendija are no mugs, but i think HJK will win this, but maybe with 1-0 or 2-1... I think Škendija will pass in next round... maybe BTTS is better option for this game, i wont touch this game, there are so many other games to play...

i dont know why people think that hjk is better than škendija, for me they are similar teams, škendija tottaly outplayed them in the first game... Again, maybe hjk will win, but for me hjk is nothing special and škendija can hold them and pass to the next round
