    HJK to strengthen their position at the top of the table at Honka
    27/09/22 6364

    On Thursday afternoon, Veikkausliiga leaders HJK head to Honka as the visitors look to strengthen their lead at the top of the Finnish top-flight table.


    The home side is currently third-place in the Finnish top-flight table, 11 points behind Thursday's opponents, with a game in hand on HJK.

    Honka heads into this clash on the back of a relatively poor run of form, as they have failed to win in three Veikkausliiga while suffering back-to-back defeats against Haka and also HJK last time out. Honka will be hoping for a different result this time, so soon after that last defeat.

    Vesa Vasara’s team has been poor defensively in recent games, as they have conceded at least two goals in their last three outings in the Veikkausliiga.

    The defeat against HJK last time out ended an 11-game unbeaten home run for Honka in the Veikkausliiga.


    The visitors will be confident of maintaining their position at the top of the table heading into the final stretch of the league campaign. HJK are currently top of the table and five points clear of second-place KuPS, who have a game in hand.

    The reigning champions go into this clash on the back of a ten-game unbeaten run, having recorded eight wins and two draws.

    A 2-1 victory over SJK last time out means that the league leaders have also recorded five straight league victories while scoring at least two goals in four of their five wins.

    HJK are undefeated in their previous four away games in the Veikkausliiga, having recorded three wins and a draw in the run.

    Their recent away games in the Finnish top-flight have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their previous five league matches on their travels.

    What does Forebet predict?

    Forebet predicts that HJK will take a step closer to retaining their title by recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
