This is a big game for both teams as they are currently both in the relegation positions. JJK is currently last and facing direct relegation. They are 2 points behind HIFK who is 11th in the relegation play-off position. Both teams have managed to get only 1 win so far this season. Last week JJK suffered losses to both HJK and IFK Mariehamn. Against HJK they played with a man advantage for the most of the game but still lost easily. Against Mariehamn they played a solid game and were able to create chances but two early goals ruined the game for them and they lost 2-1. For this match they will get back some key players and they have no suspensions. Of course they will still miss Hanslian, Abahassine, Abdi and Loutelamio so no full backs available for this game. The pitch at Harju is already in good condition so it will allow JJK to play the way they want, on the ground passing game.

HIFK is in awful form and they have lost their last 3 games now. They have played most of their games at home with only 1 win from 9 home games. On the road they have only played 4 matches with only 3 draws and 1 loss. HIFK has had a lot of injuries in their previous games and from this match they will definitely miss Fredrik Lassas, Tommi Vesala and Tuukka Andberg. It will be interesting to see if key midfielder Mika Väyrynen is fit enough to start and who will be playing in the central defense.

The teams met once this season in Helsinki with the match ending in a draw.

Starting line ups:
JJK: Pyhäranta – Tapaninen, Nieminen, Lähitie, Vielma – Manninen, Leppänen, Poutiainen, Kari – Etock, Petrescu
HIFK: Eriksson – Kuusijärvi, A lody, Raimi, Hänninen – Gela, Halme, Bäckman, Terävä – Sihvola, Forssell

Prediction:

HIFK playing without Väyrynen and Maanoja who are big losses. JJK at home can win this match. JJK draw no bet.
