HJK Helsinki vs Club Brugge by Mudhara_9er
A mediocre side with great heart, Helsinki have managed to score an average of 2 goals in their 3 home European matches.
Club Brügge tried to get more then the draw against Torino, but the Italian defence mixed with unlucky finishing meant Brügge had to settle for a fair draw. They are undefeated in 7 straight matches, and have only lost 1 match out of 15 so far in the season, only down side is the many draws. Their attack is attractive but the defence needs some working on and suffers on counters due to the aggresive style of attack. Their league position is positive so focus on Europe is good.
In 5/6 away matches both teams have scored and a minimum of 2 goals has been scored, while 3/5 matches have ended with over2,5goals.
Club Brügge are favourites to win as they face the groups underdogs, i expect them to continue their impressive attacking style and have a little more accuracy infront of goal as Helsinkis defence is not at the same level of Torinis. Both sides have opened matches with over 1,5 goals in the first half of their European matches (Helsinki 2/3 home matches, Brügge 3/4 all matches) As mentioned Brügges defence has suffered in some matches as a direct sacrifice from the attacking style, so i expect the home side to take advantage of this.
Both sides are motivated to win and both have a fair share of weaknesses and strengths, with Brügge the better side of the two on paper and in quality, goals are expected in this match.
Worth the risk - odds 15 for both teams to score in both halves
