Finland – Estonia Match Preview
- Finland complete their final preparations for their maiden European Championship appearance by hosting lowly Estonia as they look to build up some much-needed confidence. Winless in their last five internationals (D2, L3), the home side will hope to recapture the form that saw them grab 19 victories in 30 matches prior (D1, L10) which helped the Nordic nation qualify for their first-ever major tournament.
- On home soil, Markku Kanerva’s side are currently enjoying a fantastic run that’s seen them lose just three times across their last 19 outings (W13, D3). Currently ranked 54th by FIFA, Finland typically beat teams worse than themselves, but ironically, Estonia are the only side ranked worse than #85 to defeat Finland across their last 13 matches against such opposition (W10, D2).
- Last time out, visitors Estonia beat neighbouring Lithuania 1-0 in the Baltic Cup to end a run of 20 international matches without victory (D4, L16). However the visitors still rank 116th in the world, mostly thanks to a poor backline that’s conceded 3+ goals in nine of those 20 fixtures. In fact, Estonia have kept just five clean sheets from their last 33 internationals, and once suffered a 10-2 defeat at the hands of Finland here in Helsinki – their joint-biggest international defeat!
- Mercifully, their record somewhat improves when focusing solely on recent away friendly matches. In their last 14 such matches vs other nations, the Baltic side have remained unbeaten in nine of those match-ups (W6, D3, L5), but conceded first within 15 minutes in the previous two.
- Players to watch: Finland’s Teemu Pukki (30 goals) is three goals shy of becoming his country’s all-time top goalscorer – he has five goals in his last five internationals with four of those coming after HT. Henri Anier is in equally fine form after scoring four of Estonia’s last five goals.
- Hot streak: The team to score first has gone unbeaten in 11 consecutive friendly H2Hs.
