Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Haka will be aiming to climb to top six when they take on HIFK at Bolt Arena on Saturday. Haka have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating Mariehamn, while sharing the spoils with both Lahti and SJK. Teemu Tainio’s troops have a good chance to climb to the championship group places, but they will have to prove their worth on the field.
A man to watch in the away team will be Scotland attacker Lee Erwin, who managed to find the net in each of the previous three league fixtures. HIFK, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom with only six points in their pocket, and given their shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting side. To make things even worse for the home side, first-choice goalkeeper Beto is banned for the match.
