This is the biggest game in the Finnish Veikkausliiga. HJK Helsinki are the traditional top team, while SJK are the new force thanks to huge investments in recent years. They are expected to fight for the title this season, having lost to Mariehamn in 2016. Therefore, this can be considered the game of the season in our HJK Helsinki vs SJK preview.
Both teams are rather disappointing so far, though. HJK Helsinki are top, but they drew too many fixtures and have significant problems scoring. Their last two games ended in goalless draws. SJK are even worse, with just three wins in the first ten matches. They also drew their last two games, and hope not to lose in Helsinki, because that could spell the end of their title challenge. This is a hugely important game, and HJK Helsinki vs SJK betting tips are influenced by that.
(Odds taken from Bet365)
HJK Helsinki are rightfully considered favourites, but their recent form is not encouraging and the odds are low. The importance of this fixture is enormous, and we should expect a tight game in our HJK Helsinki vs SJK predictions. Given the fact that both teams are usually involved in low scoring games, it is only logical to suggest the odds on under 2.5 goals that seem fantastic at 1.80. You can even look at under 1.5 goals if you are bold – the odds are superb at 3.40. The previous fight between HJK and SJK in October ended goallessly.
