IFK Mariehamn team news:

Mariehamn has changed quite a bit from last year and their pre-season was not the best. The 2015 Cup  and 2016 Veikkausliiga champion got knocked out already from the group stages in this season´s Cup and the friendlies did not go that well either. In their opening game they lost deservedly to RoPS 2-0. They still seem to struggle away from home. Last season they were 3-5-8 on the road. At home they were really good last season with a 10-5-2 record.

HJK team news:

HJK has not changed that much from last season even though they did lose their crucial midfielder Tanaka and first goalkeeper Dähne. They have made it to the final of the Finnish Cup yet again and their pre-season went pretty well. They lacked a bit of goal scoring threat but after their loan signings for Klauss and Amr Gamal, they look as deadly as they did when they had Morelos last season (well almost). They still lack that bit of creative threat that Tanaka provided but its getting there.

Prediction:

The odds are too low for the visitors, Mariehamn is a tricky place to visit. 1X Double chance is the main pick.
