SJK vs Lillestrom
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 21 July 2022
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: OmaSp Stadion.
SJK had a dreadful start to this Veikkausliiga season, recording negative displays consistently. Instead of bettering, they turned displeasing recording more of those further in the league. As a result, they are pushed down to the 9th spot which is inside the danger zone at present.
Meanwhile, Lillestrom had an impressive start to this Eliteserien season. They maintained the same further to secure themselves at the second spot of the table. However, their recent form is a bit inconsistent. They will be hoping to fix it by returning back to the consistent winning track.
Both these outfits will follow the above form to enter the first leg of this season’s Europa Conference League qualification quarterfinals fixture. Unlike Lillestrom, SJK had an extra test before getting into the quarterfinals. It was against Flora which SJK succeeded impressively.

- This will only be the first head to head meeting between these two outfits.
SJK vs Lillestrom Prediction
The home run of SJK is not that impressive when looking at the past 10 fixtures. They failed to maintain their positive start here as they recorded winless outcomes often here further then in the league. A Suomen Cup home fixture against Inter Turku also ended up in a defeat for them.
However, they have gained back the much needed momentum by remaining unbeaten in each of the past five home outings across all competitions. This includes the second leg win against Flora in the past round of the Europa Conference League Qualification.
On the other side, Lillestrom is having a decent form on road this season. They have only lost one so far this season on travels. Their offensive side have been scoring goals at a good rate too. Also, they have only lost once in the past 10 outings on road across all competitions.
Considering all the above stats, we are left to back Lillestrom to seal a win from the first leg clash against SJK.
