VPS vs SJK: Preview and Predictions

VPS vs SJK 2018 Veikkausliiga Predictions 1st June 2018 by LeagueLane

Finnish Veikkausliiga
Date: Friday, 1st June 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Elisa Stadion, Vaasa.

Both VPS and SJK have been struggling with the form coming into their Friday’s clash at Elisa Stadion. The hosts will be hoping to take advantage of the huge slump in SJK’s form to return on the winning ways after drawing three and losing one of last four games in Veikkausliiga.

Petri Vuorinen, whose men generally opened the campaign in a decent fashion, has a lot of headaches caused by the lack of creativity in the final third in the most recent set of fixtures. Whilst the defensive line has not been catastrophic, shipping just three goals in last three league games, it’s the attacking line which failed to produce as the team bagged just one goal at the other end at the same time.

VPS vs SJK: Head-to-head

  • The head to head stats completely favour SJK who seem to love playing at Elisa Stadion.
  • The visitors from Seinajoki won eight and lost just one of nine H2H matches with Vepsi at Elisa Stadion.
  • Overall, SJK won 16 and lost 5 of 21 meetings with VPS as none of their previous ties ended without a winner.

VPS vs SJK: Predictions

The visitors have not been much better in the final third either of late. Unlike their counterparts, they have been fairly easy to break down over the past couple of weeks which is why we saw them suffer four defeats and play one draw in last five Veikkausliiga fixtures.

Since VPS notched just one goal in last three games and since SJK have the same attacking record from past four league outings, we have to go with the Under 2.5 goals FT as the main betting option here, set at the odds of 1.60.

As for the outcome, we believe it will be very hard to make the difference between these two on the day which is why we’d advise braver tipsters try with the 0-0 draw at the half time at the 2.50 odds as an alternative option.

VPS vs SJK: Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.60
  • Under 0.5 goals in the first half @ 2.50.
