Fresh from a 6-0 thumping at the hands of leaders HJK, SJK can leapfrog their opponents on Saturday if they can shake off the effects that resounding defeat and beat visiting Inter Turku. Inter can move into 2nd spot with a win, though that certainly won’t be an easy task.
Our SJK vs Inter Turku preview starts with a look at the home side’s more recent performances. Although their harrowing 6-0 hammering at the hands of HJK can’t be ignored, the defeat came off the back of a four match unbeaten run for SJK. Managed by former Motherwell and Derby County player Simo Valakari, the home side have only lost once at home in six.
Although the away side sit proudly in 4th spot before our SJK vs Inter Turku predictions, the open feel of the early Veikkausliiga season and consequent league placings belie the actual performances of many of the teams at the table’s top end. Inter Turku have only won four of their ten games so far.
However, their away form has been superb – three wins from four on the road makes them the second best side on their travels behind VPS Vasaa.
Making our OddsDigger SJK vs Inter Turku picks for this fixture proved a difficult task. The sides are extremely well matched, as are many of the teams in the Finnish Veikkausliiga. With SJK’s confidence likely dented by their mid-week mauling at HJK, Inter Turku could steal a march on their opponents if they start Saturday’s game with real intent from the off.
However, even considering their recent 6-0 loss, SJK had been putting in some pretty decent performances and they should be worth a point on Saturday.
