Ekenas are probably the worst team in the Finnish Veikkausliiga this season. In the national league, they picked up only six points in twelve rounds, so Gabriel Garcia Xatart's team are last on the table. Ekenass are in poor form, with four defeats in the last six matches in all competitions. In the previous game, they lost 2-1 at home against Mariehamn. The home side was already in trouble in the first minute as Abdoulaye Kante received a red card soon after the referee's first whistle, so guests didn't have too many problems securing all three points. 

HJK should be the best Veikkausliiga team. However, most of 2024 was far from perfect for them as they needed 14 points to retake the first position on the table from KuPS and VPS. HJK are in a perfect run lately with four wins in a row in all competitions. In the previous game, they won 3-1 at home against KuPS. The guests were close to points as they had a 1-0 lead until the 81st minute. HJK scored three fast goals late in the game and picked up a win that propelled them to the top of the table. 

Ekenas vs HJK pick: HJK to win and cover AH -1 spread

HJK are in fantastic form, with a 16:2 goal difference in the last four matches. On the other hand, Ekenas have big problems and is a primary candidate for relegation. We should expect HJK to win and cover the AH -1 spread in the upcoming Suomen Cup against Ekenas.
