This is the first leg match of the Europa League qualifiers 3rd round. The second leg is played in Helsinki next week.

Slovenian champions Olimpija Ljubljana also started in the Championsh league but they got knocked out on the first round by Qarabag 0-1 on aggregate. In the Europa League 2nd round they beat Northern Irish team Crusaders 6-2 on aggregate. HJK first beat Faroe Island Champions Vikingur 5-2 on aggregate. They then lost to BATE Borisov 1-2 on aggregate to get this far.

Olimpija has been in a bit of a crisis at the moment. They have already played 3 rounds in the Slovenian championship and they are yet to win a game. They have lost one and drawn twice. This also led to them changing their head coach. HJK played on Saturday against RoPS at home and drew 2-2. In that match they rotated their players in order to be rested for this game.

Previous matches:

The Finnish football fans might remember Olimpija from last season as they lost to Vaasan palloseura 0-2 on aggregate losing both legs 0-1.

HJK team news:

Juha Pirinen and Daniel O´Shaughnessy are still out and Ville Jalasto is a doubt. Both new players Macauley Chrisantus and Jordan Dominguez are available.

Prediction:

X2 Double chance for HJK
