Gnistan vs HJK Betting Tips - HJK to Win

HJK return to action on Wednesday looking for their second win of the week after an impressive 4:1 win against SJK last Friday. Luke Plange´s sensational 13-minute hat-trick late in the second-half secured a much-needed victory for Ossi Virte's side. 

Having failed to win three of their four previous league matches, Friday's win will have boosted confidence in the HJK ranks. Currently third in the division, the away side now sit six points behind KuPS in the race for the Finnish title. 

On the road HJK have won just one of their last five league fixtures, but will see Wednesday´s fixture as an opportunity to get back to winning form on their travels. 

Hosts Gnistan have endured a tough start to their first-ever campaign in the Finnish top flight, collecting only 12 points from 11 games played this season. Winless in nine of their last ten matches played since mid-Aparil, Wednesday´s hosts slipped to a 1:0 loss at EIF on Saturday. Jussi Leppälahti´s side have lost five of their last nine league outings.

At this venue, Gnistan slipped to defeat in two of their last four matches, including a 3:0 loss against Haka in May. 

HJK edged to a 1:0 win when these sides last met in May, while they have claimed victories in all five previous meetings between these sides. While not in the best form, Ossi Virte's men should take confidence from their big win over the weekend.

Ultimately, I'm confident the visitors can make it back-to-back wins on Wednesday. As such, an away win is my top choice at the Mustapekka Areena.

HJK team news

Head coach Virte is unlikely to make too many changes to the side that scored such an impressive win last weekend. Luke Plange will surely come into the XI after he bagged a second-half hat-trick against SJK.
