HJK Prediction- Can HJK move top of the Veikkausliiga?

HJK occupy 4th place on the Veikkausliiga league ladder and make their way into tonight’s clash with Honka having recently registered back-to-back wins.

Victories against KPV and RoPS in 3-1 and 1-0 wins ended an ordinary sequence of 8 matches without a win in the Finnish top flight.

Within this previous 8-match run without a win, HJK were involved in no fewer than 6 draws but also tasted defeat to Inter Turku 4-1 and a 3-0 loss to Lahti.

However, both of these defeats were inflicted upon HJK away from home, so they’ll no doubt be relieved to be returning to home turf for this clash.

Indeed, HJK still remain unbeaten at home with a record of 3-3-0 10/6 but the prospect of another draw can’t be ruled out in this encounter with Honka.

Instead, the goals market look promising as 5 of HJK’s last 6 home matches have seen both teams score.

Goalscoring midfielders Riski, Lappaleinen and Mensah (2 goals apiece) look the most likely for the hosts here.

Honka Prediction – Can Honka draw level at top of table?

Honka find themselves just one league position and 1 point behind their Wednesday night’s hosts, HJK, prior to their top half clash in the Veikkausliiga.

The visitors were handed a surprise 1-0 defeat at home by bottom of the Veikkausliiga, KPV, last time out, so they’ll be keen to bounce back with a result here tonight.

That shock loss to KPV ended a promising sequence of 4 matches without defeat for Honka who had recorded wins against 6th placed SJK and 8th placed Lahti.

In addition, Honka had picked up points in draws with Ilves and VPS, while away from home they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their first 5 away matches this season.

An away record of 3-1-1 8/5 looks a reasonable return so far for the visitors who have registered wins at RoPS, KuPS and SJK on their travels so far this season.

The bigger picture shows us that 9 of Honka’s last 15 away matches have seen both teams hit the back of the net also.
