Liechtenstein vs Finland, Tuesday’s game for the qualifying round, Group J, for the EURO 2020 Qualifiers, in the Rheinpark Stadion, Vaduz.
Liechtenstein and Finland play their fourth European qualifying round today at a time when the two teams have been campaigning very differently with Liechtenstein taking the last place in the group with 0 points while Finland is second in the group just behind of Italy that was clearly the favorite to beat this group.
Liechtenstein are a poor team that can hardly get any result in this group stage, which was demonstrated in the last round when they were massacred by Armenia losing 3-0 in a game where Armenia finished the game with 31 shots.
Today they have Finland, a team that is not usually very feared but who in recent times has been improving immensely having even won their group in the Nations League and is now second in qualifying for the Euro.
Even if it is the home game, I do not think Liechtenstein will have a good chance of getting a good result unless it closes very well and can get a draw to zero considering that Finland is not the strongest offensive team.
The Finnish national team is in a good moment for a long time coming to this game from two consecutive victories, in Armenia their first win by 2-0 and their most recent and most interesting one when they defeated Bosnia 2-0, a Bosnian team that has several players of great quality.
Today, Finland is going to Liechtenstein so they should see this game as a mandatory victory against a team that is not only weakly offensive but also has many weaknesses in the defensive point, something that may weigh today.
Although this Finland is not a very strong team at the offensive level I believe that today against a selection of low quality as Liechtenstein and taking into account also that the game is important for the Nordic formation it seems to me that Finland should take the win, even for more than a goal difference.
