This match is played in Vaajakoski which is just a bit outside Jyväskylä. JJK´s normal stadium is under renovation so JJK will have to play this game and their next one against RoPS in Vaajakoski.

JJK is bottom of the league which is understandable as they play with one of the smallest budgets and most of their players are Ykkönen level. They can fight pretty well the first half but usually they run out of steam in the 2nd half. They are the 7th best team in the Veikkausliiga if you would only count the half-time results (4-7-5). With a record like that at half-time, they still have managed to get only 7 points. This happened also in their last game where a 0-0 at halftime against FC Inter, turned into a 4-0 loss.

SJK has not had a very good season so far. They have changed their head coach already twice and last week, they got knocked out of the Europa League with a 0-2 home defeat to KR Reykjavik. They are currently 10th with 19 points from 16 games. They have a 2-1-4 away record so far this season. They will get a lot of players for this match as new signings Joel Mero and Sergi Arimany are now available for the first time. Also Aristote Mboma and and Chema Anton are back from injury so SJK has plenty of players now to choose from.

The teams met once this season in Seinäjoki with the match ending 1-0 for SJK.

Starting line ups:
JJK: Marttinen – Tapaninen, Nieminen, Gustavsson – Vielma, Manninen, Leppänen, Poutiainen, Suoraniemi – Kari, Etock
SJK: Aksalu – Hurme, Vales, Bardanca, Tahvanainen – Hetemaj, Hradecky – Ions, Klinga, Zeneli – Mboma


SJK is the clear favourite here and they should win but we will back goals here. Over 2.5 goals.
