Honka vs HIFK
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Tuesday, 1 September 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Tapiolan Urheilupuisto (Espoo).
Honka comes to round 12 of the 2020 Veikkausliiga season as the only unbeaten side in the league, yet they have problems converting draws into wins. So far, the 11 games played is split between 4 wins and 7 draws.
Anyhow, they find themselves in a strong position to make the push for a top 4 finish after finishing third last season.
Honka played a thriller on the midweek, in the Europa League qualifier against Danish side Aarhus. They did end up losing 2-5, but the last two goals were conceded in the injury time while pushing for an equalizer.
HIFK find themselves 3 points behind Honka, but they are coming on the back of a three match losing streak. All these defeats came by a 1-goal margin.
It is worth to note that the team was on a 5 match unbeaten streak with 4 wins and 1 draw.
Honka vs HIFK Head-to-head
Honka have a strong h2h record against HIFK having won 4 of the 8 meetings along with 3 draws.
However, HIFK’s lone win during the period happened last year at the Bolt Arena in Helsinki.
Honka vs HIFK Prediction
This could be a tight match with Honka struggling for wins yet unbeatable, while HIFK are highly unpredictable with their approach on the pitch.
This is a reason for us to focus on goal markets. Honka have kept only 1 clean sheet at home this season, so do HIFK in their away matches.
Both teams to score looks good for me, also considering that neither side want to end up losing here for similar reasons.
