Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
As expected, HJK defeated Ilves 2-0 in their last league match to stay in the title race. Helsinki are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Veikkausliiga, but they will have a big fish to fry in Saturday’s football game against the league leaders. A man to watch in the home team will be new signing Roope Riski, who has already started paying off. KuPS, on the other hand, made a promising start to the season, with the team recording four wins and two draws in the first six league fixtures.
Arne Erlandsen’s troops are eager to cement top position in the standings, but beating HJK at Bolt Arena is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards in the Veikkausliiga derby, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. In their last meeting at the venue the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
