Finland vs Liechtenstein: Match preview
A heavy defeat against Bosnia shook Finland’s chances of winning its first historic European Championship placement. Still, a convincing home win over direct competitor Armenia and an unexpected Bosnian defeat in Greece brought them to this position.
Finland team news:
Finland has earned this success with its very good presentations based on solid defense and moments of inspiration from the unstoppable Pukki on offense. Two rounds before the end of qualifying Finland has a huge five points advantage over Armenia and Bosnia. Now only a miracle can stop them on the way to the European Championship.
Hockey is a Finnish national sport, but now there is a football euphoria among fans, which should be seen in the stands of the stadium in Helsinki during the match with Liechtenstein.
Probable lineup: Hradecky, Granlund, Vaisanen, Toivio, Raitala, Soiri, Kamara, Kauko, Lod, Jensen, Pukki.
Liechtenstein team news:
Liechtenstein has embarked on a new qualifying cycle with new coach Kolvidsson. He has excellent experience in Icelandic football, which has been on the rise in recent years. Kolvidsson embarked on a new business adventure without too much expectation, but after a series of introductory bad results, he began to justify the confidence gained by winning points in Greece and in front of his own supporters against Armenia.
These matches have shown that Liechtenstein’s team does not necessarily have to represent the sparring partner. Their solid play in defense and focusing on quick counterattacking can lead to positive results. Following these successes, Kolvidsson’s squad has suffered a heavy defeat against Italy.
Probable lineup: B.Buchel, Goppel, Hofer, Malin, Meier, Polverino, Martin Buchel, Rechsteiner, Hasler, Gubser, Salanović.
This is a match where everything is obvious. The only real question is how many goals the Finns will score. So, be sure that celebration in Helsinki can start.
