HJK on Thursday fought a lot, but couldn’t do anything in the opening round of the European Confederation League group stage against LASK. The effort made in the European match, hardly exhausted Toni Koskelas’ team, staying with only one point against Honka. The appearance of the champions was quite mediocre, who in several cases save themselves from a defeat. The injury list is quite big for this match, because unavailable are Peltola (13/0), Tanaka (13/1), Halsti (6/0), Tannander (6/0), Benissan (4/0), while the injury in the previous match of the main stopper O’Shaughnessy (15/1) is a significant blow. Key midfielder Lingman (16/1) is doubtful. This is the biggest derby of Helsinki, where the clear favorite is HJK, but HIFK will enter with huge motivation, and with a combination of important absences and hard schedule of the home team, I think that HIFK is able to make a lot of damage.
