HJK will be licking their wounds following their embarrassing 2-1 reverse at bottom club Oulu last week and the champions will be determined to bounce back in convincing fashion against Haka. The league leaders have plundered a hefty 12 goals in their last four encounters with Haka and the division’s most prolific team are generously priced at -1 in the match handicap stakes for Saturday.
HJK to Score in Both Halves
HJK have a 100% winning record at home in the Veikkausliiga this season and their success at the Bolt Arena has been powered by their goal-scoring prowess. HJK have scored in both halves in an impressive 80% of their home assignments so far and the title holders can impact the scoresheet again in each period against struggling Haka.
Roope Riski to Score Anytime
HJK schemer Roope Riski is in blistering form and the goal-getting midfielder has hit the net six times in his last eight appearances in all competitions. Each of Riski’s last three efforts were registered in European fixtures, though he is a solid bet to add to his domestic haul this weekend.
HJK vs Haka: Match Preview
With continental distractions a factor, HJK took their eye off the ball at Oulu last weekend where they slipped to a surprising defeat, though their midweek loss at Malmo in their Champions League qualification tussle first leg would have hurt just as much. Toni Koskela’s men have the resolve to bite back this weekend however and HJK will be aiming to stretch their six-point lead at the summit of the Veikkausliiga.
Haka limped to a 0-0 draw at KTP last week, a result that pushed their winless run to a dismal seven matches. Teemu Tainio’s team is littered with fresh faces after a busy summer and it’s clear that his new players are struggling to develop chemistry. Haka failed to score a single goal in each of their last three matches and only two clubs have notched less often this season overall.
