    Faroe Islands

      Tip Reasoning

      Finland piled the misery on a disappointing Greece side on Friday when substitute Joel Pohjanpalo snatched a 75th minute winner for the visitors.

      Greece had a massive advantage in both possession and attempts on goal, with them being in control of the ball 65% of the time and taking 21 shots without success.

      This leaves Finland with seven points from their first seven games, with a draw at home to Greece and a win against the Faroe Islands making up their points.

      Finland have won only two of their last nine games in total, with six of them ending in defeat and only five goals scored by the Finns.

      They are still in with an outside chance of qualifying for Euro 2016. They have a five point gap to make up over 3rd placed Hungary to put them in a playoff position, but not many are predicting that they will up their position in Group F.

      Faroe Islands have a slightly smaller chance of reaching their first European Championship Finals, with a point less than Finland after two wins and five losses.

      Both of these wins have come against bottom of the table Greece, with the Faroe Islands unable to get any change from any other team in the group.

      I would expect the Faroe Islands to shut up shop and try to nick a point in this match, but it’s doubtful that their weak defence can hold any team out for a whole 90 minutes.

      Finland also have the advantage when it comes to historical results, with them comfortably winning all three of their previous fixtures against the Faroe Islands. They have scored 12 goals and conceded once in these three games, although two of them were played over 20 years ago.

      The Faroe Islands have looked better in defence this year, and seem to simply park the bus when they’re away from home and go into damage limitation mode. They limited Romania to one goal, and they’re up against a Finnish side who have been struggling for goals recently. I think that odds of 1/1 for Under 2.5 Goals look like good value based on this information.
