HAKA VS HJK HELSINKI PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Haka has only played 5 matches but has received 3 defeats, 8th place shows their erratic form. Scored 6 goals but conceded 8 times, an average of 1.6 goals conceded per game. The offensive ability is not that bad but the downline is the cause of the poor performance. More ominous in the last home match Haka exposed their shirt 0-3 against rookie Kotka. The gameplay is too loose and the situation of attacking and breaking occurs often, typically 1-2 defeats against Inter Turku. Following the defending champion Helsinki in difficult times, the ability to limit goals is a huge question mark.
Last season’s championship was the 30th time HJK Helsinki crowned in the domestic league. There is no need to argue about the strength and class of Koskela’s team at this time. They accelerated strongly with 5 victories after the first 6 rounds to rise to the top. The attack still shows the difference with 14 goals, in the last 2 matches, Helsinki scored 5 goals against Oulu and Seinajoen. The strikers have achieved an efficiency of nearly 2.5 goals per game since the beginning of the season, all showing superiority and extremely high performance. With the current euphoria, any opponent at this time is hard to avoid a tragic outcome.
The confrontations of the two teams are often very open, the last 7/8 matches have 3 or more goals. This rematch is no exception when both need points for their own goals.
Select: Over 2.75 FT.
Not only superior in strength, but the history of confrontation completely favors the away team. 10 meetings Helsinki brought up to 9 victories, 5 of which had a difference of 2 goals or more. Not to mention Haka at the beginning of the season is showing a bad rhythm.
Haka’s performance did not receive the trust of experts. The loose play made them receive 3 defeats after 5 matches. The defense was to blame in a 0-3 loss at home to Kotka. In the opposite direction, Helsinki won 5/6 of the first round, their victims including Honka and Lahti were highly appreciated. The last 2 trips to Helsinki were both triumphant songs, stopping them now is an impossible task for Haka.
Select: HJK Helsinki -1 FT.
The European odds show that the house highly appreciates Helsinki winning. With the destructive style of coach Koskela’s students, it is difficult to miss such a favorable opportunity. Haka’s ability to surprise is almost zero when the level difference is so different.
Select: HJK Helsinki FT.
Helsinki’s dominant position was to be expected. With the current correlation of forces, it is not too difficult for Helsinki to create a difference of 2 goals. The away team soon opened the scoring in the first half and maintaining the advantage in the second half is a very likely scenario.
