Working to put their latest league collapse behind them, Haka will take on a struggling AC Oulu at Tehtaan kentta for gameweek eight of Finland's Veikkausliiga on Friday.

Haka vs AC Oulu Betting Tips: X2 (Double chance)

A sequence of commendable results that spanning seven unbeaten matches across all competitions (W5, D2) came to an unpleasant end for Haka, as they suffered a five-star destruction at the hands of Ilves in their latest league action.

However, those managed by Andy Smith can take pride in their solid haul of 11 points from the opening seven league fixtures this term, as they currently occupy the last spot in the blue zone, only five points adrift of Veikkausliiga leaders VPS.

After all, the White and Blacks will be hoping for a quick recovery from the five-goal fiasco, having put in some good performances at home, going unbeaten in three straight matches at Tehtaan kentta, including impressively holding defending champions HJK to a 1-1 draw.

For their part, AC Oulu were only a few minutes from their first triumph of the season last time out, but a defensive breakdown left them frustrated as they concede a late equalizer in a 1-1 home stalemate against IFK Mariehamn.

While that outcome marked their third match without defeat in any format, a run that sees them progress in the Suomen Cup after a 3-0 drubbing of third-tier side GBK Kokkola on May 8th, the downside shows that Silvennoinen's squad has yet to secure a win in any of their opening seven matches.

Their meager tally of four points from 21 on offer puts them second to last in the Finnish top tier, but the Laivastonsiniset will be hoping to take something out of Friday's clash, having avoided defeat against Haka in all but one of their previous nine H2H's.

The spoils were divided evenly in a tepid contest when the two sides last clashed late January this year in the Liiga Cup, and a similar result is expected this time.

The spoils were divided evenly in a tepid contest when the two sides last clashed late January this year in the Liiga Cup, and a similar result is expected this time. Despite enduring a torturous start, it feels like AC Oulu deserve much more than their current tally of four points, and with Haka coming off a traumatic five-goal loss, we believe Silvennoinen's men should do enough to earn points in this one.

Haka team news

The 22-year-old Northern Irish goalkeeper Liam Hughes is the only one who will be unavailable for the hosts, while the main shot-stopper Anton Lepola should stand in goal for the ninth time in a row.

Frustrated at watching his side fall to a heavy 0-5 hammering at the hands of Ilves last time out, head coach Andy Smith could consider making a few changes to his starting line-up.
