Europa League Qualifiers: HJK Helsinki

Although HJK lost the first leg of their third qualifying round, HJK still cannot quit as they still have a chance to overturn their results. Fortunately, they are doing well when it comes to their home games as they won their last three home games. Due to this, they are now confident that they can overturn their results and win here. They only have one goal difference, so they remain confident that they can overturn their results. However, in order to win, HJK needs to work harder, especially in the backline, which is their problem. On their last four games, they conceded seven goals, which is not a good sign for them. That record may affect their momentum, which is why they need to improve here. A place in the playoffs is at stake, so expect HJK to make some improvements.

HJK remains to be without their goalkeeper Dejan Iliev, due to an injured elbow. He is joining Valtteri Moren, and Oliver Petterson, who are also sidelined due to their own injuries.

Qarabag on the other hand won their first leg, which gives them the confidence coming into this game. However, despite their advantage, they still cannot be overconfident here, as they only have a one-goal lead. During the first leg, it was Leandro Andrade who opened the scoring for Qarabag. Moreover, it was Olavio Vieira dos Santos Junior who secured that win for Qarabag. Coming into this match, Qarabag have high hopes to qualify for the playoffs.

However, when it comes to attacks, they are not in their best, but they have enough to be able to qualify for the next round.

Injuries are also bothering this squad, as they will be without Abbas Huseynov, and Marko Vesovic, who have het to recover from injuries. With that, Toral Bayramov is likeli to continue patrolling their backline.
