Telia 5G Arena – Euro 2020 Qualification
A win for Finland will see them safely qualified for Euro 2020, their first ever major international tournament, without the need for a play-off. Liechtenstein are reduced to the role of unlikely spoilers.
Finland won the reverse fixture between the two sides back in June, with goals from Teemu Pukki and Benjamin Kallman securing a 2-0 win.
Finland are boosted by having their main man Pukki in the squad, despite his recent struggles at Norwich City.
He is joined in the squad by rising talents Glen Kamara and Fredrik Jensen, at Rangers and FC Augsburg respectively.
Lichtenstein main players will be Red Star Zurich midfielder Martin Buchel and Sporting Kansas City striker Nicolas Hasler.
Finland vs. Liechtenstein Preview and Predictions
Finland have two qualifiers to secure their Euro 2020 qualification, however boss Markku Kanerva will want it settled before the Greece for their final game.
Kanerva’s side have slotted into second place in Group J, behind leaders Italy, with five wins from eight qualifiers.
Liechtenstein have picked up two points from their eight games, with draws against Greece and Armenia.
However they are well out of the running for any chance of qualification, with two games to go.
Finland look well placed to end their qualification drought, and a Finnish win with over 1.5 goals scored is available at 0.13.
Whilst Finland have not been amongst the goals in qualification, relying more on efficiency, they will want to seal qualification with a flourish.
And with that in mind, they are priced at 0.5 score in both halves in this game.
Finland to win 2-0 at 5.0
They know a place at Euro 2020 is so close, and it is difficult to see anything other than a routine home win, and a place in next summer’s tournament.
Teem Pukki to score first at 3.10
Pukki has been Finland’s star man in qualifying, with six goals in eight games powering them on the brink of qualification and he badly needs a goal to boost his confidence at club level
