Match preview

Having won on the road in Helsinki last mid-week, Viktoria Plzeň are firmly in pole position to get through.

Six nights ago, Tomáš Chorý broke the deadlock early for the away side, only for Bojan Radulović to equalise for HJK.

Nevertheless, not long after, Jan Kopic restored Viktoria Plzeň's advantage, ensuring the left Töölön jalkapallostadion 2-1 winners.

Will the Czech champions now make that lead count back at home?

Michal Bílek is looking to lead Viktoria to their eighth UEFA group stage and first since 2018.

Having fallen in the play-off round in each of the last two seasons, they’ll hope it’s third time lucky.

HJK meanwhile are now 31-times Finnish champions, but haven’t translated this into continental success.

They’ve qualified for just three group phases, coming in the Champions League in 1998, the Europa League in 2104 and the Europa Conference League last season.

Given that HJK have only won three of their last 16 European away games, a comeback looks unlikely at Doosan Arena.

The reward for the winners is a Champions League third qualifying round clash against Maribor of FC Sheriff.

The losers will face the losers of that tie in the Europa League third qualifying round.
