Match preview

Following last Thursday’s first leg in the Finnish capital, this tie is still very much in the balance.

A week ago, David Browne scored the only goal of the night at Töölön jalkapallostadion as HJK ran out 1-0 winners.

Will that prove decisive as the two reconvene just 623 miles south-west in Silkeborg.

Helsingin Jalkapalloklubi have now won 31 Veikkausliiga titles, the next most is Haka and HPS with nine, but they haven’t been able to transfer that success onto the continent.

To date, HJK have featured in three UEFA group stages, these coming in the Champions League in 1998, Europa League in 2014 and Europa Conference League last season.

This season though, they’ve already beaten RFS and Maribor, suffering a Champions League defeat to Viktoria Plzeň in-between.

Nevertheless, Toni Koskela’s team are guaranteed group phase football, but are desperate to remain in this competition.

As for Silkeborg, this is their first European tie for 21 years having finished third in Denmark last season as a newly-promoted club.

Aside from the Intertoto Cup, they’ve only ever won two of seven European ties, beating Crusaders in 1995 and Mura three years later.

Will Kent Nielsen’s team turn this tie around at Silkeborg Stadion, or will they drop down into the Europa Conference League?
