This is the final group stage game for both teams and both of these Ykkönen teams are fighting for the 3rd spot. That 3rd spot could be crucial as it might be the best 3rd placed team of all groups and they would go to the next stage. Haka has the best chance as a win here would give them 10 points which could be enough if FF Jaro does not win their game. Even then they have a chance with goal difference (Jaro has +2 on Haka at the moment.). In order for JJK to progress they would need to win this match. Hope that BOTH RoPS and AC Oulu do not win their game. FF Jaro does not win and TPS does not win. Its a bit of a stretch the JJK qualification but not impossible.

JJK got relegated from the Veikkausliiga after last season and they lost quite many players especially in their attack and defense. They are still a very capable team in Ykkönen but an immediate promotion looks difficult. There are a few teams that we rate a bit more than them but they are in the mix. JJK has not played badly by no means. Their only “bad” game was their 0-3 loss to group winners Ilves. They beat both Kakkonen teams Viikingit and GrIFK without conceding a goal. Against FC Lahti they played really well and the match looked like ending in a draw if it was not for the last minute goals for Lahti. Their defense looks good but offensively they still struggle a bit

FC Haka has had a similar form to JJK as they had a close loss to FC Lahti (2-1). They beat Viikingit easily but had to come from behind right at the end against GrIFK. Defensively their best game though was against Ilves and where they got a point form their rivals. FC Haka also has changed from last season but they seem to be also in the mix for the promotion. We rate them just above JJK for this. A lot will depend on injuries and if they can keep consistency. Last season they were a very good home team but away from home they struggled.

Starting Line ups:
JJK: Pyhäranta – Abdi, Kovaqi, Nissinen, Lepo – Suoraniemi, Leppänen, Manninen, Petrescu – Alaharjula, Ala-Porkkunen
Haka: Immonen – Kyöstilä, Rantanen, Malundama, Starck – Lähdesmäki, Popovitch, Dafaa – Hilska, Gerald, Nganbe


We rate Haka a bit better and despite them struggling away from home, Haka draw no bet is our pick.
