Odds: 7/2 @ William Hill
HJK Helsinki welcome FC Ilves to the Sonera Stadium in the Finnish Veikkausliiga on Thursday evening, in a game that could be close to call given the two sides are occupying the top-two places in the division. HJK seldom concede on home soil while travel-happy Ilves have been hard to beat away, which could result in the two sides cancelling each other out.
HJK Helsinki are currently top of the Finnish Veikkausliiga table with 11 points from six games this season, having won three and drawn two. They have won just one of their last four ahead of this week’s clash with FC Ilves but their home form has been far more convincing – two wins and a draw from three games at the Sonera Stadium.
As for the visitors, FC Ilves find themselves second in the division with 10 points, coming off the back of three wins from their last four games. Away from home, Ilves boast a 100% record, conceding only once on the road. And with HJK conceding only one goal at home this season, Thursday’s meeting could well be a stalemate.
