HJK Helsinki vs Molde match preview

The champions of Finland and Norway go head-to-head, so can Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi make home advantage count in this first leg?

In the previous round, HJK, just about, overcame debutants Larne, winning 1-0 at home before a 2-2 draw in Belfast, sneaking through courtesy of an extra time own goal.

The 32-times Veikkausliiga champions have featured in a UEFA group stage in each of the last two seasons, dreaming of reaching the Champions League for the first time since 1998.

Molde’s European adventure starts here, having won their fifth Eliteserien title in 2022.

Erling Moe’s team have advanced through 14 of their last 18 qualifiers, so probably come into this clash as slight favourites, making it vitally important for HJK to claim victory at Töölön jalkapallostadion.

The winners of this tie will take on BK Häcken or Klaksvíkar Ítróttarfelag in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.
