SJK vs HJK
Date: 12th October 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/19:00 CET
Venue: OmaSP Stadion.
HJK regained the crown in Finland with a superb campaign in this term of Veikkausliiga.
The new champions are 18 points clear at the top of the standings with four games left to play, but they have no intention of ending the superb run of eight consecutive wins.
Can the super-motivated SJK side do anything to bring this phenomenal run to an end on Thursday at OmaSP Stadion?
The hosts still have ambitions of catching the third position which is currently four points away.
To get there, Brian Page’s men will have to find their attacking form which has been kind of lost lately as the team notched no more than a single goal in last three outings against HJK, Ilves and Mariehamn.
Getting goals will be anything but an easy task for Page and his side against HJK who have been very tough to break down lately.
The visitors have by far the best defense in the league as they allowed no more than 12 goals in 29 matches so far in the season and they will enter the clash with SJK having kept three straight clean sheets.
SJK vs HJK: Head to head
Klubi have not had major issues in the history of matches against SJK who won only than four of their 16 encounters.
HJK have not allowed a single goal in last four encounters with SJK and we would not be surprised to see this trend continued this Thursday.
SJK vs HJK: Prediction
The bet that stands out is HJK to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 5/4 given everything written above.
You can also back the visitors to celebrate their ninth subsequent victory at fairly acceptable 8/13 odds.
