Finland vs Liechtenstein: Preview & Prediction


It could be the first success for the Finnish national team for a long time. Because opponents Liechtenstein is individually less secure than the Northern Europeans, who have some players who are in the best leagues of the world week for their husbands. First of all, goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky of DFB Pokalfinalist Eintracht Frankfurt is to be mentioned here. Likewise, captain Niklas Moisander played a good role at Werder Bremen in the past season. Leverkusen striker Joel Pohjampalo is another German legionary who will be in the lead with the goal. The fact that they can also be against teams from the top 40 of the FIFA World Cup, for example, showed the test against Austria in March, where Finland outfitted a 1-1 draw. In the game to the front went only very little, but in the end you could have a point win. The Finns have been struck by many unnecessary hardships, however, because of their creativity and playfulness. In addition, they managed to score a narrow 1: 0 away defeat against the team from Morocco. The results of the team of Markku Kanerva can not be seen in the current World Cup qualifying for Russia 2018, however. Here, too, it was particularly the offensive game. In the last three competitive games Finland have not scored a single goal, but defeats against Turkey (0: 2), Ukraine (0: 1) and Croatia (0: 1). Accordingly, the supervisor’s staff is likely to know exactly where to put the lever. One hope is the physical component: with their robustness, the EM-starter team in the second qualifying match for Russia were brought to a close with a tight 2-2 defeat. Both goals came from high balls to the top. In the end, however, they gave a 2: 1 lead in the last few minutes, not necessarily a sign from the international class.


Optimists would define the job of Coach Rene Pauritsch as grateful, after all, he has something to lose with Liechtenstein in hardly a game. Pessimists and realists, on the other hand, would emphasize that there is hardly anything to be gained with Liechtenstein. As with many small countries in Europe, it is above all high-ranking offensive players who are short-listed in Liechtenstein. Until recently Marcel Büchel had a legionnaire in one of the top four leagues of Europe, namely FC Empoli. However, his club had recently lost the descent and was not part of the decisive phase of the championship. Friendships and qualifying games from the past years reflect the quality of Liechtenstein’s true faith. The minority has even more problems in the offensive area than is the case with Finland. In the only match in 2017, Macedonia were easily defeated with a 0-3 draw. It was already the seventh time in the past nine games (!) That the Pauritsch elf ended a game without own hit. Liechtenstein’s last goal in the country has been more than a year back, when the Faroe Islands had to be 2: 3. The final point was also scored in March 2016, but a 0-0 win against Gibraltar is more likely to be a success for the opponent. The last victory was achieved by Liechtenstein one year earlier, and in March 2015, San Marino beat the 1: 0 goal. Bitter: On Wednesday, the goalkeeper Peter Jehle will be a hugely important player from Liechtensteins, who is still on his way back after an injury.

As I said in this match with God, no great powers of football match. One or the other hit is still to be expected, although we see this on the part of the householders from Finland. Accordingly, we are confident that the Markku Kanerva team will be a success.
