Rops vs HJK Helsinki Predictions

A busy schedule for HJK Helsinki sees them have barely any time to catch their breath before they step straight back into action in a clash between two sides who have been less than impressive in the opening few rounds of the season. This Friday sees RoPS face off against a side who have played five matches in 23 days and who are looking to kick start what has been a pretty slow start to the campaign.

RoPS have plenty of reason to be disappointed with their own start to the season as they go into this match fourth from bottom having claimed just 11 points from their opening 10 matches of the campaign. Things could get worse before they get better too as the three sides behind them in the table all have a game in hand. The hosts have struggled to find the net on a consistent basis as they have managed just seven goals so far this term.

Making the trip to Rovaniemen keskuskenttä is a HJK Helsinki side who may have started the season poorly, but following their victory last time out, they will be looking to build some momentum as they bid for yet another Veikkausliiga title. However, although their confidence will be boosted, they still have to improve on a pretty dire away record, which has seen them claim just three points from their five matches on the road this season, a record which will no doubt be influenced by the fact that they have the second worst defensive record in the division.

The visitors may well go into this match as favourites, but their form on the road means they are too risky a prospect on the win-draw-win market. Given the fact that RoPS have started to show a little form in their previous two outings and the defensive frailties of their visitors, we think that backing both teams to score represents the best chance of a decent return.
