Hard to tell to be honest. With it being a double header some may opt just for the 1 game and for a few it could be the first away since October 2023 if they don't go to the away friendly in June.

And some might favour Finland over Greece as we've been there recently enough.

Any truth to the rumour that Helsinki is one of the boring capitals cities in Europe?

Depends what you're into. Most Finns I've met are either painfully boring or absolute headers. There's no middle ground. 

I think (but others will know better) that there's a similar drinking regime to Sweden with state controlled off licenses etc. 

Anyone who was in Stockholm in 2013 will remember the hassle getting into bars (auld lads in their 60s and 70s getting asked for ID, etc) and buying tins before the game. Hopefully it's not the same sh*te.

Apart from the game, Is there much to do or see in Helsinki?

When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

Was in bar in Stockholm by myself in 2013 and four Irish lads came in, were having the craic among themselves, totally harmless, not rowdy at all. Bar man comes over to me and says can I ask my friends to quieten down. I'd never seen them before in my life. Told him to fcuk off. Swedes are odd alright.

Worked there for 9 months. Blokes can be a bit boring.
All underground carparks that you can access through all the shopping centres and link up through them all.

Was the barman being a smartarse or genuinely thought they were with you?

They were at other end of bar. He must have thought every Ireland fan knows every other Ireland fan, the tube.

Tallinn is 2 hours away by boat, a day trip could be easily done. I think most Finns leave at the weekends and head to Tallinn and Riga.
