That’s all from Klaksvik: FT 0-1
HJK managed to do what Hacken and Ferencvaros before them couldn’t, they scored on Klaksvik. In all fairness, it was an equal match, with both sides having chances. The tie is certainly not over yet
Five minutes of additional time. HJK sitting back now and game tempo has clearly slowed down. Klaksvik look tired.
Klaksvik with a good chance, as Jesse Ost has trouble with a long range effort, but the HJK defence is there to clear.
72’ GOAL 0-1
HJK have found their goal, an explosive counter attack finds the speedy Topi Keskinen who finishes calmly with one touch, Helsinki have found their go-ahead.
