Maribor vs HJK – Predictions, Odds, & Best Betting Tips

Maribor had a disappointing run of back-to-back away defeats with the crucial being the 1-0 loss against Sheriff in the Champions League. This led to an exit from the competition after the first leg had finished as a goalless draw. HJK were comprehensively outplayed in their Champions League qualifier against Viktoria Plzen after they lost 7-1 on aggregate.

Maribor to win

Maribor have been able to pick up just one win in the last five matches. This is a terrible run of form for the team who have ambitions of qualifying to Europe. HJK Helsinki were completely outplayed in their qualifier against Viktoria Plzen. The Finnish outfit have generally struggled in away matches and it would not be a surprise to see them go through a similar run.

Total goals over 2.5

Viktoria Plzen were able to completely disassemble HJK in the second leg of the qualifiers, but it would not be a surprise to see Maribor struggle with the same. Apart from the three goals scored against Gorica in the domestic match, Maribor have struggled in the final third. Still, HJK’s contributions are likely to ramp up the goals.

Both teams to score – yes

HJK were very competitive in the first leg against Viktoria Plzen. Maribor have struggled defensively with no clean sheets in the last three games. The two teams might cancel out each other on a number of fronts but they are unlikely to register a clean sheet.
