HJK Helsinki won their first UEFA Europa League Group B match on matchday four and will look to get three more points on the board as they welcome FC København.
• As a result of FCK's 2-0 defeat of HJK on matchday one, the last eight games between Danish and Finnish sides in UEFA club competition have been won by the Danish team.
• HJK won their only previous home match against Danish opponents, but FCK have yet to lose in three trips to Finland (W2 D1).
• FCK's 4-0 loss to Club Brugge KV on matchday four was their heaviest home defeat to date in the UEFA Cup or UEFA Europa League.
• HJK's 2-1 win against Torino on the same night gave them their first Group B points – and, indeed, goals.
