This is the second leg match of the Europa League qualifiers 3rd round. The first leg ended 3-0 for Olimpija.

Olimpija Ljubljana goes into this match after a comprehensive win in the first leg. The difference between the teams was not this big but Olimpija just was much better in finishing their chances compared to HJK. At home HJK should be much better on their artificial turf but going through might be just too difficult.

HJK will have a small edge in their rest as they did not play last weekend. Olimpija did play in their own league and they won Triglav 0-4 to give them their first win in their league after four rounds.

HJK is a very strong home side. Their loss to BATE Borisov was only their second in the last 10 European games they have played at their home.

The winner of this tie will play in the playoffs against Spartak Trnava.

HJK team news:

Juha Pirinen and Daniel O´Shaughnessy are still out. Mosa and Hannu Patronen are suspended from this match.

Prediction:

HJK to win.
