Date: Saturday, 15 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Bolt Arena (Helsinki).
HJK has been unbeaten for the past five matches and the 1-0 loss on the road against Inter Turku was their only loss within the last ten fixtures in the schedule across all major competitions.
Their previous encounter was on the road and they bagged the win against KuPS with a 0-3 scoreline.
Klubi hasn’t lost at home after four league appearances so far. With an average of 2.0 goals at home, the host seems strong in their attacks and the use of the ground advantage.
Honka is just two points behind the host in the league table. Vesa Vasara has successfully led his team to an unbeaten streak in the campaign, going nine games straight in the schedule.
Having won only one of their four outings in the campaign so far, Honka will not expect an easy fight with the host at Helsinki. They will visit after a goalless draw at home against SJK last time out.

HJK vs Honka Prediction
Honka is playing a more defensive game and the host will have a hard time beating the visitor’s defense in the encounter, but they will eventually see to it with their stellar form in the campaign.
The home win in full-time will probably be a safe bet for the encounter with the host as the favorite to win. The host is likely to win either half of the game since the visitor will play more defensively in the middle.
