Finland hosts Liechtenstein in a match from the qualifiers for Euro 2020
Finland hosts Liechtenstein in a match from the qualifiers for Euro 2020. In our soccer matches tomorrow we are going to take a look at this fixture in Helsinki on Friday. Are you ready?
Finland are having one of their best qualifying campaign so far. At this moment the Eagle-owls are second in the group with 15 points, being only behind the leader and winner of the group Spain. In 8 matches played so far, the Scandinavians achieved five wins and suffered three losses – a lot of better than their usual performances in these campaign.
Finland’s manager Markku Kanerva really deserves credit for what he has done with the team. He was appointed at the position in 2016 and since then he’s constantly improving the squad.
In the previous round of the qualifying stage Finland achieved a very important 3-0 win at home against Armenia. Fredrik Jensen opened the score for the Eagle-owls, while Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki finished the job with a brace after the halftime break. The team’s biggest star scored his goals after assists from Joel Pohjanpalo and Rasmus Schuller.
At this moment Finland are 5 points ahead of the third Armenia, so they need just a point in their next two games to finish second in the group.
Liechtenstein are at the bottom of the group with just 2 points won so far. These points were won during the team’s draws against Greece and Armenia.
In the previous round Helgi Kolvidsson’s boys hosted Italy in Vaduz, but they were unable to compete much against the Azzurri and got schooled by the visitors.
That’s our soccer matches tomorrow for the European qualifier between Finland and Liechtenstein on Friday. The Scandinavians are very close to wrapping up the second place in the group and we think they won’t make a mistake here.
