HJK vs Honka
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Wednesday, 19 June 2019
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Telia 5G-Areena (Helsinki).
Honka has two games in hand, and should they utilize it properly, the team could easily take the pole spot. But they had a bizarre match the last day against the bottom-most KPV. The team which was winless from their nine games so far recorded a narrow 0-1 win, and that too on the road.
Suffice it to say, both players and fans of Honka are shell-shocked, and they will be desperate to climb back from the pit they have climbed down into.
HJK, meanwhile, seems to be on the right path with the top-tier and the top-most spot in sights. They recorded back-to-back wins after going through a minor blip in form. The last day, the squad was on the road and showed grit in grinding out a win.
The score was tied at 0-0 with just three minutes to the final whistle, when the visitors netted the sole goal and the winner of the game, to take their coveted three points.

HJK vs Honka Prediction
HJK was unbeaten in 14 of their last 17 matches, and at home, they are on an unbeaten streak of nine games, of which six were wins. They also scored two or more goals in nine of their last twelve such ties and avoided a loss in 22 of their last 26 clashes at home.
The team had separate seven-match, and five-match winning streaks in front of their home crowd during this stretch, and looks on fine form to host Honka this Wednesday.
As far as h2h ties are concerned, HJK recorded nine of the last twelve such wins, and seven of the last eight at this venue. With them having the home advantage too, count on HJK to post another three points on the board.
Coming to goals, Honka is no pushover, and found the back of the net in 14 of their last 17 games, and in 18 of their last 20 on the road. Importantly, 12 of the last 13 h2h encounters and the last eight at this venue had goals at either end of the pitch. As such, expect the same to happen this time around too.
