SJK vs FC Honka
Finland – Veikkausliiga
Date: Friday, 21 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: OmaSp Stadion.
Vesa Vasara’s men have been one of the top-performing sides in the league for the past few seasons. They had a podium finish in the recently-concluded edition of the Veikkausliiga – and thus they had become eligible to take part in the national UEFA Europa League Qualification Final.
Meanwhile, their counterparts were lucky to have avoided relegation after finishing 9th in a competition of 12 teams. In the process, they had scored the fewest number of goals of all the teams in the league.
In fact, they had slotted in a total of just 18 goals from their 27 games, and even the two relegated squads had breached the 30-goal mark.
Moreover, recent h2h clashes too have been dominated by Vasara’s men. For all these reasons, expect Honka to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
SJK vs FC Honka: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Vasara’s men have recorded the last three wins in h2h encounters.
- They have conceded a total of just one goal from the former four meetings.
- Since 2014, only once have they lost against this rival.
- The guests are on a two-match winning run at this stadium.
- They have also failed to score just once at this ground in the past six years.
SJK vs FC Honka: Prediction
Kerho have been underperforming to such an extent that they have recorded a single win since July of 2019, and even that victory had come against TPS Turku, one of the worst teams in the whole competition.
They had also barely avoided relegation in the last campaign. Meanwhile, their opposite number have been one of the best teams in the league, and they have been usual contenders to qualify for European competitions for the past several years as well.
They are also on an unbeaten run of ten fixtures, and have lost a total of just twice since August of 2019. On the road, they have lost just once in the past 12-month period, and that loss had come in a cup competition.
Moreover, they also have been the dominant team in h2h clashes over the past six years.
Taking into account all these facts, expect FC Honka to emerge victorious this Friday at the OmaSp Stadion.
