On the 27th of July, we’re going to witness a clash between a team from the top side of Veikkausliiga and a team which is certain to relegate. HJK, who is currently at the 4th place with 25 points is going to host 12th placed VPS.
The team from Helsinki has 6 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses. There is a 3-point difference between them and the league leaders Ilves. On the other hand, Vaasan Palloseura have failed to win a single match in 15 rounds. In fact, their losing streak lasts even longer than that. In the last 19 matches they played in Veikkausliiga, they haven’t been able to taste a single victory. Furthermore, HJK has displayed some decent performances recently including the elimination of HB Torshavn in the UCL qualifiers. Their record shows 3 wins and 2 draws in the last 5 matches. Therefore, it is fair to say that they are in a rather good form.
All in all, it is no secret that there is a colossal quality gap between those two Finnish teams. HJK are contending for the title while VPS are trying to stay in the league. In fact, they are hoping rather than trying. Having taken all these statistics and facts into account, the best choice here is to opt for AH -1.25 HJK.
