HIFK defeated Honka 1-0 in the last away game, ending the three-game losing streak. HIFK was in a passive position and only got 3 shots through counterattacks. Although their tactical execution was at a relatively high level, their offense still lacks effective methods of attack. However, given that HIFK had only 32% of possession, Honka was able to make merely 4 shots with 0 on target in the last round. The team's defensive efficiency is very nice.
Helsinki defeated IFK Mariehamn 6-1 at home in the last round and gained four victories in a row. They have been unbeaten in the past ten rounds,which is amazing. Moreover, Helsinki has also recently strengthened their defense so that no goal was scored in two games and concede only one goal in three games. Considering that the team's high defense efficiency, it should be a offensive and defensive battle for HIFK who is defense-oriented.
The handicap first odds was opened to HJK Helsinki +1 with low return. The companies obviously paid more attention to Helsinki since the return continued to go up in the later period. Although HIFK ended a losing streak in the last round, their offensive problems still were not solved. Besides, they have not won a victory against Helsinki in the past nine matches. I don’t see any chance of winning based on the data.
Picks: HJK Helsinki -1
Score Prediction: 0-1, 0-2
