Inter Turku vs JJK
Date: Saturday, 8th July 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Veritas Stadion.
Inter Turku successfully recovered from a devastating 5-0 loss to Mariehamn two weeks ago as they held the current Veikkausliiga leaders HJK to a 1-1 draw last weekend.
Sinimustat will have a nice chance to back it up with a victory in the 16th round of the competition as they host the rock-bottomed JJK on Saturday at their Veritas Stadion.
Shefki Kuqi’s men have had a promising start to the new Veikkausliiga campaign, but the series of tougher fixtures caused the drop on form as they are winless in last four games.
Inter are, however, still in the top half of the standings and their star man Njazi Kuqi (Shefki’s younger brother) will have a nice opportunity to bring back the impressive form he had at the very start of the season against the weakest defensive side in the league.
The visitors are on a poor run of four consecutive defeats which see the team trailing five points behind the penultimate-placed HIFK.
Ketut conceded as many as six goals in back-to-back home losses to HIFK and Lahti and there is no sign of better days for Juha Pasoja and his squad.
Inter Turku vs JJK: Head to head
Interestingly, only a single out of 18 head to head clashes between the two teams saw a draw.
The hosts lead the tie by five wins and they came out victorious in the first meeting with JJK since 2013 (following JJK’s return to the elite class of the Finnish football this year).
Benjamin Kallman and Allan Henrique bagged goals in a 1-2 win for Inter at Harjun Stadion in early May this year.
Inter Turku vs JJK: Prediction
The hosts should be in control from the very first whistle, but the 3/10 odds offered by the bookies on the home win bet will not make anyone rich.
The odd are too low considering the fact the host are winless in last four games which is why we will rather back home win & BTTS at much more acceptable 15/8 odds since both sides showed holes at the back in the recent period.
Inter Turku vs JJK: Betting Tips
The top bet will be Inter Turku to win & BTTS at the odds of 2.87.
You can alternatively take Inter Turku Over 2.5 Team Goals at the odds of 2.20 odds.
