HIFK Prediction- Can HIFK reduce gap on top six?

Although HIFK occupy a lowly 9th place on the Finnish Veikkausliiga table, they head into Tuesday night’s encounter with SJK having put together a 5-match unbeaten run.

Four draws and a win have seen the hosts a harder prospect to beat now as they’ve picked up points in draws with Mariehamn, KuPS, KPV and Inter Turku as well as a win last time out.

HIFK registered a 2-1 home win against VPS and they’ll be keen to repeat this victory against high-flying SJK on Tuesday night.

The hosts have suffered just 1 defeat on home turf at their Telia 5G -areena so far this season which was a 1-0 loss to Lahti in their opening home game of the season.

Since then, HIFK are unbeaten in their last 5 matches at home which includes wins over Honka 2-0 and VPS 2-1amidst an overall home record of 2-3-1 7/5.

Goals have been few and far between on home turf where HIFK are concerned as 5 of HIFK’s 6 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

SJK Prediction – Can SJK go top of Veikkausliiga?

5th placed SJK travel to the Telia 5G -areena having recorded just 1 win out of their last 5 matches overall, which was a 1-0 win away at KuPS last time out in the Finnish top flight.

SJK had previously gone four matches without a win in a sequence that included three draws with Lahti, HJK and RoPS, and a loss to Honka.

Similar to their hosts, HIFK, visitors SJK are unbeaten in their last 6 matches away form home, but this includes 4 draws and 2 wins amidst an overall away record of 2-4-0 8/6.

The results away from home this season have seen the visitors involved in a high number of draws and this has contributed to 4 of SJK’s 6 away matches resulting in under 2.5 goals.

Goals have also been scarce where SJK are concerned on the road as 13 of SJK’s last 15 away matches have also been under 2.5 goals, and this looks like being another low-scoring game.
