Finland vs Estonia

Finland did a very decent job to get a victory over Hungary in the first round of UEFA Nation’s League and now in case they present themselves in a good picture again, they will become one of the favorites to win this group. No doubt that the atmosphere is decent now and that they’ll try to use such momentum.
They entered the game against Hungarians really strongly and took the lead already in the seventh minute thanks to a goal from Pukki. The Finnish team continued being better in the first halftime and threatened some more, while they switched to a more defensive approach in second as they were simply satisfied with a result they had.
Comparing to previous few call-ups, they aren’t counting at defender Juha Pirinen, midfielder Glen Kamara and forwards Berat Sadik and Tim Vayrynen.
Estonia expectedly suffered defeat to Greece in their first-round game last Saturday evening. The only goal was scored in the fourteenth minute by Fortounis and could be said that the Greeks got what they wanted in this clash without being in need to make a lot of effort.

Still, the visitors were better for the entire game, as they looked like completely in control over everything in the field and could have scored a goal or two more. Fully deserved victory against a side that showed very little positive things overall and has no reason to be satisfied with the level of their performance in this one.
Estonia will miss defender Dmitri Kruglov, Markus Jurgenson, midfielder Mattias Kait here, as well as forward Frank Liivak in comparison to previous few call-ups.
Estonians looked really poor against Greece, especially as the time progressed. Finnish team showed some really decent desire to attack against Hungary and now with their morale boosted, they shouldn’t have many problems winning over a side that can do so little in attack to harm the others.
