Only one game tonight in the Ykkönen; AC Kajaani vs AC Oulu
AC Kajaani vs AC Oulu 18:30 Liikuntapuisto, Kajaani
Bethard odds: 3.60 – 3.60 – 1.95
The odds look really good for the visitors in this Air Condition unit derby (Not actual name). AC Oulu is the main favourite to earn promotion as they have compiled a really good team into this league with plenty of players who have experience playing in the Veikkausliiga for instance. They started the season well by beating away from home another promotion candidate FC KTP 0-1.
AC Kajaani on the other hand is a question mark. They have again plenty of foreign players whose level is unknown. They also have a new head coach who likes to play with ball control. In their opening game they lost at home to newly promoted MuSa 1-2 but that loss could have been expected as Kajaani formed their team quite late on so there has not been so many training sessions with the team. Even this week they got a new forward.
This game should be different than Kajaani´s first match as both Kajaani and Oulu like to keep the ball. This could lead into some goals also.
Main pick is an easy away win. Bethard having 1.95 odds for this. Oulu did not beat Kajaani not even once last season but the teams are different and at the start of the season Oulu has the upper hand for sure. The teams met in a friendly at the end of March which Oulu won 1-0.
