Inter Turku vs SJK Preview and Predictions

Inter Turku vs SJK
Finnish Veikkausliiga
Date: Saturday, 14 July 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Veritas Stadion, Turku.

SJK escaped the relegation scrap with back-to-back home wins over Lahti and RoPS. Can they keep the fine spell of form going and make it three wins on the bounce to overtake Saturday’s rivals Inter Turku at the eight position of the Veikkausliiga standings? They are just single point below ahead of the clash at Vertas Stadion in Turku.

Nevertheless, it will be all but a one-way street for the visitors given they will be up against a highly-motivated opposition who have also been successful in the previous round. Sinimustat ended the streak of five straight games without a win to stun Lahti 1-2 on the road seven days ago. It was defender Kenny Mansally who notched a brace for the team led by the Welsh manager John Allen. Interestingly, these were his first goals of the season in 14th appearance.

Inter Turku vs SJK: Head-to-head

  • SJK lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of their 15th meeting with Sinimustat.
  • Nevertheless, Inter Turku came on top claiming a 0-1 victory when teams met in this term of Veikkausliiga, back in mid-May at OmaSP Stadion.
  • It is interesting to note that only one of last six H2H games saw both teams on the scoresheet.

Inter Turku vs SJK: Prediction

Inter Turku are set as slight favourites, but we’ll go for the visitors who have the better head to head record and who have won last two leagues ties against Lahti and RoPS (second-placed side). Knowing Inter Turku lost three on the trot in front of the home crowd coming into this game, we just have to go with the draw or away win double chance at 1.70.

The game will have a massive importance for both teams who generally fancy defensive-minded style of football. Knowing that only one of last six H2H games offered goals at both ends, we will shoot for the BTTS – NO option as an alternative bet at the odds of 1.95.

Inter Turku vs SJK: Bet Tips

  • SJK or Draw Double Chance @ 1.70
