The hosts have made good progress in recent matches. In the playoffs of the conference league they beat Oulu (3-1), Inter Turku (2-0) and Farul (2-0), and in the meeting with KuPS there was a draw (2-2).
The team’s performance is worth highlighting: Tony Korkeakounnas’ team scored at least two goals in these matches. The coach prefers an offensive tactical scheme, which allows HJK players to dominate in most of the matches.
At home, the club, with the support of the fans, acts with confidence: six victories in the last eight games. Only Qarabag managed to defeat HJK (2-1) in qualifying for the Europa League.
On September 4, PAOK lost for the first time since the start of the season in the Greek championship – OFI (0-1). The club’s Russian midfielder, Magomed Ozdoev, was on the field the entire match, but could not influence the result.

After the national team break, the situation did not improve. The black and white finished the home game against Aris with a draw (0-0). It is curious that Magomed Ozdoev met his compatriot on the field: Magomed-Shapi Suleymanov made his debut with the guests.
Ozdoev, 30, joined PAOK in the summer from the Turkish championship, where he played for Fatih Karagumruk. Magomed played seven matches for the new club, but has not yet scored any effective action.
The black and whites began the Conference League playoffs in July. They had to overcome three qualifying rounds to advance to the group stage. PAOK played six matches with the Beitar, Hearts and Hajduk clubs: four wins and two draws.
Tony Korkeakounnas’ team won the Finnish championship last season, but could only qualify for the Conference League. At home they act with confidence: six wins in their last eight games. Taking into account the slight drop in PAOK, it is very likely that HJK will not lose by 1.81.
