HJK to Win to Nil

Defending champions HJK have tightened their already close grip on domestic football in Finland this season and their return of ten victories from their first 11 games of the new Veikkausliiga campaign has allowed them to open up a six-point gap at the summit. Toni Koskela’s men have conceded just five goals this term and on Saturday HJK’s mean defence comes up against the division’s weakest attack. The league leaders have already kept seven clean sheets this term and they are worth backing to claim another this weekend.

Over 1.5 HJK Team Goals

HJK are averaging 2.0 goals per 90 minutes in the Veikkausliiga this season and the division’s top-scorers could find more joy in the final third against Oulu this week. The champions stuck three goals past the newly-promoted outfit back in May and they are superb value to notch over 1.5 team goals again when the teams reconvene on Saturday.

Match Handicap: HJK -1

We expect HJK to be comfortable winners this weekend and at close to evens, the title holders are priced brilliantly at -1 in the match handicap market. HJK really turned on the style in their 7-1 aggregate win over Montenegrin outfit Buducnost in their last two fixtures and with their finishing sharpened on the continent, HJK should push past an ordinary Oulu side with ease back in their homeland.

Oulu vs HJK: Match Preview

Oulu

Oulu were expected to struggle following their step-up from the second tier in Finland and the minnows have definitely lived up to their relegation favourites tag. Jyrki Ahola’s men have lost nine of their first 11 fixtures this season with their solitary victory so far coming against second from bottom KTP. Oulu have managed to score just twice in six home games since their promotion and their lack of goal-getters should see them drop plenty more points in 2021.

HJK

HJK have been playing like champions again in 2021 and the giants from Helsinki already look like they could disappear over the horizon towards a 31st league title. Success in their recent Champions League qualification double-header with Buducnost will have galvanised their confidence even further and with Roope Riski, Luis Henrique and Filip Valencic all in red-hot form, The Club will be tough to stop.
