Our prediction for this Finland Veikkausliiga match:
Helsinki will be looking to retain top position in the standings when they welcome Mariehamn at their Bolt Arena on Sunday afternoon. HJK have been in a fine form of late, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive win in Veikkausliiga. Top scorer Roope Riski, who extended his goal-scoring run in the midweek game against SJK, will be the man to watch in the home team. Mariehamn, on the other hand, rolled over RoPS 4-0 on Matchday 11, with the team climbing to the 5th position in the standings.
However, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out as Lukas Syberyjski’s troops are not regarded as good travellers. You should bear in mind that Mariehamn have already suffered three defeats on the road in the new Veikkausliiga campaign. When the two teams met in the Suomen Cup earlier in 2020 Helsinki defeated Mariehamn 3-1.
