Football predictions for tomorrow
HJK hosts Viktoria Pilzen in the Finnish capital Helsinki. In our football predictions for tomorrow we will preview this clash from the second round of the Champions League qualification.
HJK reached the second round after a dramatic elimination of Latvia’s Rigas FC in the previous round. The Scandinavians needed extra time to progress, but the important thing is they have done it. Now they hosts Czech Republic’s champions as underdogs.
HJK’s head coach Toni Koskela should mastermind a great tactical plan to hold Viktoria. In the attacking phase the hosts will rely on Dutch striker Fabian Serrasens and Serbia’s Bojan Radulovic. Papua New Guinea’s David Browne is another option when looking for goals.
But the most important thing is how HJK will do in defense – we expect to see Viktoria Pilzen attack in most of the time. Players like Miro Tenho and Jukka Raitala are going to be of great importance here.
Viktoria Pilzen are a club who already played in the Champions League group stage before. Now they will aim to do it again. Their manager is one of the best Czech coaches of this generation – Michal Bilek. A former manager of the Czech Republic’s national team, he knows how to in in Europe, too.
For Viktoria Pilzen this is going to be a first official game for the 2022/23 season. This means that HJK has the advantage when it comes to match practice. In their last friendly game Viktoria faced Turkish giants Besiktas and made a 0-0 draw.
The midfielder Ales Cermak is one of the players who deserve attention in Viktoria Pilzen’s squad. The 27-years old plays for the club since 2017 and he’s already an important member of the team. Watch him closely on Wednesday.
That’s the football predictions for tomorrow for the Champions League qualifying game between HJK and Viktoria Pilzen. Can the Finnish team cause an upset here? We should wait and see.
