HJK Helsinki vs FC Honka (By: Dajkula)
HJK Helsinki will host Honka in the 13`th round of the Veikkausliiga. HJK is ranked 4`th with 18 points and it really hasn`t been their season so far. With only 4 wins in 12 rounds, it has been one of the worst in recent years. They haven`t lost much but they played even 6 draws so far. The cutting edge has been missing so HJk changed the coach two rounds back. Tono Koskela took over and instantly HJk looks better. They won the last two matches, at home and away, though there is some wotk to be done on the travels. Things look much better at home where HJK has 3-3-0 and 10:6 gd. It may look even better as recently HJk brought in the ex-player Zeneli and Parra. Zeneli can play already and he will be the welcomed addition in the attack.
Honka has even 2 matches less than Helsinki and they are 5`th with 17 points and 5-2-3 so far. Interestingly enough, they look way better away from home when they can really make full use of their counter-attack and the resolve of the league MVP Borjas Martin who has 6 so far. Honka won away against SJK, Kups, and Rops, very tough teams to beat. They can bring the game to HJK and they often did. The history shows us this match isn`t all that cut and dry. HJK often has to work hard to win. The last time they met in the cup and Honka took a 3:2 win from this ground. Goals are plenty when the teams meet. Lets check the results on this ground: 2:3, 3:2, 2:1, 3:2, 1:1, 2:2, 3:3, 4:2, etc..
HJK will be missing Pelvas(4-1, att), Mensah(mid.5-2), Bueno(att.8-0).
Honka misses Rasimus(mid.5-0), Alto(def.7-0), Tammilehto(mid.10-0).
Even if HJK changed the coach I think Honka can make this interesting. Going for over 2.5.
