Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Following a hard-fought win over VPS in the Finnish Cup, HJK will look to return to winning ways in Veikkausliiga when they host AC Oulu to their Bolt Arena on Saturday. Helsinki have a chance to overtake KuPS in top position, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at AC Oulu. Both Boujellab and Hostikka should be recalled to the starting XI after the duo came from the bench in the Finnish Cup triumph over VPS.
Ricardo Duarte’s troops, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to JaPS in the Finnish Cup on Tuesday, meaning that they are low on spirits ahead of the trip to Helsinki. Since AC Oulu are not regarded as good travelers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the title-chasing hosts. In their last meeting in the national championship AC Oulu defeated HJK 2-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
